Coronavirus
(Covid-19)

Last updated: 12.30pm, Wednesday 29 April 2020

In a time of such uncertainty, many of you are understandably concerned about the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) and what it might mean for you.

The health and wellbeing of our students, future students, staff and friends of the University is paramount, and we are committed to supporting our Leeds Trinity community.

Current students and staff can find information about COVID-19 on our internal communication channels; the myLTU app for students and the intranet for staff.

This page contains information for future Leeds Trinity students, including enquirers, applicants and offer holders, and visitors to the campus, including event and conference delegates, meeting attendees and facility users e.g. Trinity Fitness gym, sports centre and the library.

If you have a question that is not answered below, please email coronavirus@leedstrinity.ac.uk

Please note that following the latest Government guidelines, the campus is now closed other than the provision of essential services for students living in University halls. Teaching and assessment is continuing online.

1: Information for Applicants

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

For any questions relating to your application or current offer, please contact the Admissions team by email admissions@leedstrinity.ac.uk and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

We are working hard to process all applications and to provide decisions as quickly as possible.

We can't receive documents by post at present. Please email us scanned copies of any requested documents for your course. If you have already sent documents by post and wish to check the status of your application, please email the Admissions Team including your full name and student ID.

We know that many of you are currently experiencing disruption to your studies and have had exams cancelled. We understand the potential impact of this. We will ensure that any applicant who receives an offer from us is not disadvantaged as a result of school/college closures or exam cancellations. UCAS is providing regular updates to applicants on this webpage.

In line with Government requirements to combat COVID-19, we have cancelled all on-campus events. If you have a specific question about our campus or student life at Leeds Trinity then please email us at hello@leedstrinity.ac.uk and we’ll get back to you. Alternatively, you can call us: 0113 283 7150.

Yes, we remain open for applications from students interested in starting an undergraduate or postgraduate degree course with us in September 2020. For more information email admissions@leedstrinity.ac.uk.

The health and wellbeing of all our students and staff is paramount, and the University will continue to adhere to government restrictions and guidance around social distancing. At present it is difficult to predict what the restrictions and guidance will be in September. We are therefore preparing a range of contingency plans to ensure we can begin teaching both new and current students at the start of the academic year in September/October – whether teaching is on campus, online or a combination of methods. These plans will also ensure we are able to adapt teaching methods should government guidance change throughout the year.

As the next few months remain uncertain in terms of the impact of COVID-19, and with the health and safety of our students, their guests and our staff paramount, we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone our July graduation ceremonies this year. We know our students and their friends and family will be hugely disappointed, and we are sorry to have had to make this decision.

To ensure that our students have the opportunity to graduate on campus, in person, and alongside their class mates and lecturers, we are making plans to rearrange our summer ceremonies for October, when it is hoped that government restrictions on gatherings will have been relaxed. Students will receive their degree certificate at the ceremony but will also receive a ‘confirmation of award’ letter when results are available, which can be used for applying for further study or employment. We expect that this will no later than the end of July.
