Reasons to choose us

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We know that choosing a university is a big decision, but we’re confident that choosing Leeds Trinity University will be the best decision you’ll ever make. Why’s that, we hear you ask?

Highly employable graduates

Experience matters. Fact. That's why we pioneered the inclusion of professional work placements with every degree, giving our students a real head start when competing for their first graduate jobs.

It's not just placements, though. Employability skills are embedded into every degree and employers are involved in the creation of our degree courses, ensuring that students develop the skills relevant to current sector needs. If that's not all, our teaching staff have extensive professional experience in their fields and maintain excellent links with employers.

The results speak for themselves – 95​% of our students are employed o​r in further study six months after graduating.
