Your next steps

Now that you have your offer you need to make the decision about whether Leeds is right for you. In order to help you find out more about your course and the University we will be hosting a number of on-campus offer holder events. These events are designed to give you the chance to visit the University, meet our academics and other students and get a taste of life as a Leeds student.

Alongside the day’s subject specific activities there will be an opportunity to take part in other events across the University, such as student-led tours of Leeds University Union and The Edge, an accommodation talk (booked in advance) and an information fair in Parkinson Court, where you can find out more about accommodation, finance and alternative entry.

We will be holding offer holder events on the following dates. Book your place now.

  • Saturday 22nd April 2023

Once you’ve booked your place at an accommodation talk, you’ll receive an email confirming your booking. Please keep this handy as you may be asked to show it when you arrive at the talk. Book your place at an accommodation talk.

Joint honours students

Please note that if you're a Joint Honours student, you will be invited to an offer holder event provided by the school from which you received your offer. However, there may be an opportunity to visit your second School if they are running an offer holder event on the same day. Please ask our Admissions team at your School of Languages, Cultures and Societies offer holder event to confirm if this is possible.

What to do if you can’t attend

We completely understand that not everyone will be able to attend an offer holder event but that doesn’t mean you should miss out. Once the on-campus events are over we will be updating this page with online video content to help you find out more about studying in Leeds. In the meantime though, if you have any questions please feel free to contact our Admissions Team


If you have any access requirements please email our Admissions Team so we can ensure you get the most out of your visit. For example, booking a blue badge parking space for on campus events or providing a transcript or captioned video after the online event.
