Information for Applicants

Here you will find the latest information for UK applicants and offer holders, as we respond to the COVID-19 situation.

Can I still attend an Open Day?

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to host our usual Open Days on campus this year. We understand how important it is to get a feel for a university before applying, which is why we’re hosting Virtual Open Days online instead. You will still get to explore our green campus, sports facilities, industry-standard studios, on-campus accommodation and social spaces from the safety of your own home with our virtual tour.

Do you have a Virtual tour?

Yes we do. Our Virtual Tour allows you to explore our green campus, sports facilities, industry-standard studios, on-campus accommodation and social spaces from the safety of your own home. We are also running Campus Tours on campus. Book your place on a Campus Tour here.

If I receive an offer from Leeds Trinity, will I be invited to an Offer Holder Day?

Yes you will. It is our intention to run Offer Holder Days on campus from February to April 2021. We will contact all our offer holders in January 2021 with more information.

Information for Parents / Carers

Online Q&A session for parents and guardians of current students at Leeds Trinity

We will be hosting an online Q&A session for parents and guardians of students at Leeds Trinity on Tuesday 20 October from 7-8pm. To find out more information and book your place click here.

How do you intend to support students living on campus who are required to isolate due to COVID-19?

We are already supporting a small number of resident students who have been required to isolate or quarantine on campus, and have an action plan in place to support larger groups of students should the need arise.

This support will be overseen by our dedicated Student Engagement Team who will work with other University staff to ensure every student has both the practical and well-being support they need, including:

  • Allocation of a named member of the Student Engagement Team for each isolating student who will check in with them regularly and ensure they have academic support.
  • Provision of essential food and hygiene products until isolating students are able to arrange supermarket deliveries.
  • Access to our ‘head space’ and mental health resilience programme via the myLTU app.
  • Provision of board games and opportunities to take part in online social activities.

We hope this provides some reassurance for parents/carers, but we appreciate that this is a worrying time for both you and our students. If a student has any concerns or questions, please ask them to contact the relevant University support services, the contact details for which can be found on the myLTU student app.

You can also find more information in our Frequently Asked Questions for parents and carers.
