Formed almost 200 years ago, Leeds Beckett University has grown to become one of the most popular institutions in the UK. With a prestigious reputation, Leeds Beckett boasts five star QS ratings for employability, facilities, inclusiveness and internationalisation a silver status in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework and enviable employability stats. Leeds Beckett University was previously known as Leeds Metropolitan University.

With an ongoing investment of GBP 200 million in course facilities, students will be using state-of-the-art equipment so that they can graduate feeling ready for whatever the world of work expects of them. This, along with a dedicated careers service for students, has contributed to 93.6% of graduates from Leeds Beckett being in work or further study just six months after completing their degree.
Leeds Beckett is well thought of all around the world and, thanks to its strong links with industry, it has been able to arrange work placements for students at multinational companies such as Disney, Apple, BMW and Nike.
