Here at Leeds Beckett, we are a modern professional university with ambition. Based in the vibrant city of Leeds, the biggest financial district outside of London, our vision is to be acknowledged for our commitment to student success, innovation and enterprise, global reach, and strong local impact.
Our aspiration is to help create great graduates, exceptional employees, dynamic citizens and enterprising leaders and we work closely with employers and partners to ensure that our graduates are ready for work, ready for life, and ready to seize the opportunities that lie ahead.
A big business in our own right, we have around 2,900 staff and more than 28,000 students from almost 100 countries around the world; we contributed an estimated £477 million to the economy every year. We are rightly proud to be the only university in the UK to hold the Investors in People Gold standard. With a 190-year history of education, which began with the founding of the Leeds Mechanics Institute in 1824, we are proud of our history and excited about our future.
