History

The Leeds School of Medicine was established in 1831, meaning the University of Leeds can trace its roots back to the early 19th century. Established in 1874, Yorkshire College of Science became a part of Victoria University in 1884.The Yorkshire College, Leeds School of Medicine, and Leeds School of Law all amalgamated in 1904 to become what is currently known as the University of Leeds. In 1904, the new university received a Royal Charter, marking its transformation into Leeds University.

Early on, the institution expanded swiftly, adding various new programmes and faculties to its core medical, legal, and scientific offerings. An important part of the university’s mission during World War I was to serve the military by teaching and researching various topics relevant to the conflict. New buildings and facilities were constructed in the years following World War II, and academic programmes in fields as diverse as engineering, teaching, and the arts were introduced.

The University of Leeds has developed into a world-class research university, regularly placing in the top five in both the UK and the world university rankings. The institution has a long history of breaking new ground in various disciplines, from the hard sciences like medicine and engineering to the more humanistic ones like the social sciences and the arts, thanks to its dedication to interdisciplinary study and cooperation.

Leeds, a large English city in the county of Yorkshire, is located a little over two hours by rail from London.

Independent surveys consistently rank it among the top three shopping destinations in the UK, and its wide variety of stores means there’s something for everyone.
