The University of Leeds is a Russell Group university and is ranked 7th in the UK for Law according to the Times and The Sunday Times, Good University Guide.
The School of Law hosts a strong community of international students and staff, who bring fresh perspectives to both the lecture theatre and beyond. The School is very active both academically and socially and hosts regular events with guest speakers, careers fairs and even the annual Law’s Got Talent which unites staff and students.
Leeds has one central cosmopolitan campus, consisting of over 6,000 international students from all over the world and is just a ten minute walk from the city centre. The city is home to the fastest growing legal sector in Britain, and is regarded as the second legal capital after London.
The campus has benefited from significant investment in recent years, with £520m being committed to campus development. The School of Law is based in its very own purpose built Liberty Building which was built in 2011 and has various study areas, a Moot Court Room, as well as teaching spaces.
Support for international students
With a history of welcoming international students for over 100 years, our support is far-reaching and all-encompassing. We offer many pre-arrival services including immigration advice, the chance to meet us at events in-country as well as offering free advice through our representatives. The Link to Leeds Ambassador Scheme gives prospective students the opportunity to talk to current University of Leeds students about their experiences and to ask questions about what it’s like to live in Leeds. Ambassadors can be contacted by email, instant messaging, Skype, Facebook or Twitter. There are also regular live chats. The support we provide continues once you’re in Leeds and throughout your time studying with us. We host an international week with a host of induction activities and social events to help you settle in.
The Careers Center supports students to help them decide, plan and compete in a global graduate job market. This is done through a range of activities. They offer drop-in sessions, guidance appointments, mock interviews, and online guidance to support students in making decisions and developing the skills to make successful applications to work or for further study. They also have a resources room with up-to-date information to support students in making decisions, planning their future and competing with other graduates in the labour market. There is also a specific service for international students which helps them explore information about occupations, industry sectors, and employers, both in the UK and their country of origin.
There is an impressive range of student housing, from modern, purpose-built apartments to converted-period properties both on and off-campus. We guarantee University accommodation to all international fee payers who apply before the deadline of 1 July.
