Founding Partner University of Leeds

The University of Leeds in the city of Leeds, West Yorkshire was founded in 1904, but its origins go back to the nineteenth century with the founding of the Leeds School of Medicine in 1831 and the Yorkshire College of Science in 1874.

The University is a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities. It is also a founding member of the Worldwide Universities Network, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the European University Association, the White Rose University Consortium, the Santander Network and CDIO and is also affiliated to the Association of MBAs, EQUIS and Universities UK.

Vice-Chancellor Sir Alan Langlands, former Chief Executive of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), was appointed in October 2013.

14 research sector hubs provide a seamless gateway between industry and academic study, and active research partnerships with Marks & Spencer and Opera North continue to drive academic excellence.
