What to expect at your offer holder event

Our offer holder events are more in-depth than an Open Day, giving you the opportunity to get a feel for our campus, find out more about the application process and what to do next.

You'll have the chance to chat to existing students and staff, ask questions and learn more about your specific subject whilst exploring the spaces and facilities you will use as a student at the University of Leeds.

There will be opportunities to visit some of our accommodation, and join a student-led tour so you can explore our beautiful campus and see why Leeds is a great place to live and learn.
