Please ask our Admissions team at your School of Design 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.
