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:

 You should get in touch with our admissions team if you'd like to apply to study part-time.

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 an Open Day.

You'll get to see our sports facilities, industry-standard studios, on-campus accommodation and social spaces. 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 Open Days are on:

  • Saturday 26 September
  • Saturday 24 October
  • Saturday 14 November
  • Saturday 5 December

International applicants

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

to admissions@leedstrinity.ac.uk.

We interview all international candidates before a final decision is made, which will usually be a Skype call at a mutually convenient time.

More information

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 admissions@leedstrinity.ac.uk.

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. 

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation and in accordance with the latest Government advice, Leeds Trinity University is suspending all unconditional and enhanced offers. You can read more about what that means here.

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.
