Find a course
Once you've found the course - or courses - you're interested in, you can apply through UCAS. That's the University and Colleges Admissions Service.
On your application form, you'll need to know our institution code - it's L24 - and the course code. If you click through to the UCAS website from the 'how to apply' section on your course page, it'll take you to the right place with all the information you need.
You'll also need to write a personal statement - we've prepared a guide to help you.
There's lots more information about the application process on the UCAS website, or you can get in touch with our admissions team who will be happy to help:
- call 0113 283 7123 (Monday to Thursday, 9.00am to 5.00pm, or Friday 9.00am to 4.00pm)
- email email@example.com
You should get in touch with our admissions team if you'd like to apply to study part-time.

Not sure yet?
Choosing your university is a big decision so we want to help you make sure we're the right choice for you.
We believe the best way to do that is to experience Leeds Trinity for yourself on a Virtual Open Day.
You'll get to see our sports facilities, industry-standard studios, on-campus accommodation and social spaces from the safety of your own home. You'll also get to talk to current students and lecturers about the courses you're interested in.
We'll also give you advice on your UCAS application and student finance.
Our next Virtual Open Day is on Saturday 5 December
If you are from outside the UK or EU, you can still apply through the UCAS website using our institution code - L24 - and name - LETAS.
You can also apply directly to us by filling out and returning our undergraduate application form along with:
- your transcripts
- your English language qualification (if required)
- references (in English)
- a copy of your passport, if available
We interview all international candidates before a final decision is made, which will usually be a Skype call at a mutually convenient time.

If you don't meet these requirements but do meet the academic qualifications, your application will be considered after the successful completion of a pre-sessional English course.
You'll find the entry requirements for each course on the relevant course page, but there are some minimum requirements that apply to all undergraduate degree courses.
You normally need to have five qualifications to meet our minimum entry requirements for any undergraduate degree course.
At least two of these should be Level 3 qualifications which are the equivalent of two full A-levels and one must be GCSE English Language at Grade 4/C or above (or equivalent).
For some courses, you will need additional requirements, for example, Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programmes or when the entry criteria are specified by an accredited body.
We understand you may want a year out to pursue other interests before you start your studies.
If you decide this before you apply you can select the next year of entry on your application form.
But sometimes circumstances change, so if you make the decision after you've applied, you'll need to send a written request as soon as possible to the Admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They will try to accommodate your request where possible.
Deferring your studies will not change the offer conditions, which you'll still need to meet in the year you applied.
If you have received a conditional offer from us, your place is dependent on you achieving the grades or points outlined in your offer on UCAS Track.
If you have received an unconditional offer from us, it means you’ve already met the entry requirements and you’re guaranteed a place.
We take an applicant’s postcode into account when they apply for one of our undergraduate degree courses which means we may be able to offer lower entry requirements for some students from certain areas and those who are care leavers.
If you're a UK student and live in what's known as an area of 'disadvantage' or with low progression to higher education, or you are a care leaver, then you may be eligible for our Differential Offer Scheme.
Eligibility is based on your home postcode (as indicated on your UCAS application form) or if you have ticked the box on the UCAS form to state that you have been looked after by a local authority.
If you meet the eligibility criteria, your offer may be reduced by up to two grades. For example, for a course with a standard entry tariff of 112 points, we would make a differential offer of 96 points. For our Primary Education undergraduate courses, the offer would be reduced by one grade so that where the standard entry is 112 points, the differential offer would be 104.
We recognise that not everyone has had access to equal standards of education and that social or socio-economic factors can cause a serious disruption to studies. Our Differential Offer Scheme enables us to consider your achievements in the context of your background in order to ensure we are being as fair as possible.
We can consider your application to transfer from another university if you meet our transfer criteria.
You must make transfer applications through UCAS.
The normal deadlines still apply, but we would advise that you contact us first to discuss the transfer before making your formal UCAS application.
Transfers are only allowed if you meet the GCSE requirements for the course, and the content of your course must be closely matched to ours to ensure that you have the same background knowledge as students progressing in our own degrees.
It is possible to apply to the second or third year of study, but applying for the third year does have implications for the degree classification. We can discuss this with you when you contact us.
In order for us to discuss a possible transfer with academic staff, when you contact us we will need to know:
- all your GSCE subjects and grades
- all your level 3 qualifications and grades
- all the modules from your current course (you should show how many credits each module is worth) and any results if you already have them
If you are applying for a teacher training course, you must be on a course which leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
We also need information about how your course and school-based training is structured and if we consider a transfer, you would be invited to interview where we would need to see school-based training reports also.
