Information For Parents and Carers

Leeds Trinity University > Information For Parents and Carers


Starting university is an exciting time for your son or daughter and we recognise that you want to support them on their journey.

We have created a guide in recognition of your need for information as parents about the process of applying to university. We hope that it helps to answer some of the questions you may have about your son or daughter’s transition to higher education, as well as giving you an insight into life at Leeds Trinity University.


The application cycle

There's so much to applying to university, so we've made an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide which explains each step - from our school visits to the first week at uni. Scroll through the timeline below:


Supportive community

We're proud to be known as the university where "you're a name not a number" - and our student support offers help with a wide range of personal and academic issues. Read more about our support here.

Teaching quality

Because we're a smaller university than others in the area, our class sizes are a lot smaller, which means more time with tutors. And our students are taught by inspiring lecturers who have extensive industry experience outside the university. That's why we're ranked in the top 25 of all UK universities for teaching and course satisfaction*. Read more here.

Graduate employability

Our students will stand out from the graduate crowd thanks to the two professional work placements we build into every undergraduate degree (meaning there's no need to take a year out). We're extremely proud of our reputation for producing highly employable graduates, and 95% of our 2017 graduates were in work or further study six months after graduating**​. Learn more about our placements here.

On-campus accommodation

It's quite daunting having your son or daughter fly the nest and head off to university, so to make that first step as easy as possible, we guarantee all students accommodation for their first year. And if they like campus life, they can chose to stay on in their second year. Take a look at our accommodation options here.

We've put together some information and resources for every step of your journey together to university:
