Visit days - after application
Finalising your choice of university is an important decision. If we make you an offer, we will invite you to join us on a special visit day just for offer-holders.
This is an opportunity to look around, meet members of staff, current students and other prospective students. We strongly recommend that you attend even if you have visited Leeds before as this is an opportunity to get in-depth information in a smaller group to help you make your final choice.
During your visit, current students will show you around campus and answer questions on what it is like to study at Leeds. We also interview on some of our courses.
We strongly recommend that you attend even if you have attended an open day at the University before applying, as this is an opportunity to get more in-depth information in a smaller group to help you make your final choice.

- Meet your lecturers
- Talk to current students
- Find out about our degrees and our research
- Have a look around our teaching laboratories and facilities

Supporting our students
We have a team of people dedicated to helping you make the transition to university as smooth as possible. Your personal tutor and the Student Education Office are there to ensure you get the most out of your time at Leeds and that you grow in confidence to become an independent learner.
Our approach to student education has received resounding endorsement from our students, with a number of our degree courses achieving high scores for overall satisfaction in this year’s National Student Survey.
We also have a specialist Student Support Administrator and a dedicated transition programme for first year students. We make the move to university simple:
- The induction scheme will help you get to know other students and your tutors.
- Each student has an assigned personal tutor that will support them throughout their degree.
- Regular student newsletters and communications provide important information and updates.
- Representing over 30,000 students, Leeds University Union help create change and offer support to ensure students love their time at Leeds.
The transition from school to university is an exciting time for students, but also sometimes a worrying time for parents. If you haven't attended university yourself, you may feel that you know nothing about this part of the education system, and wonder how you can support your child during this phase of their life. Even if you did go to university, things may have changed quite a lot since you graduated.
