University of Leeds

The University of Leeds 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 then the Yorkshire College of Science in 1874. In 1831 a group of young m­en established the Leeds School ­of Medicine which meant that medical students no longer had to go to Scotland, London or overseas to stu­dy. The Yorkshire College of Science was found­ed around 40 years later largely as a result of concerns by the wool and textile industries that the rapid development of new technologies in Europe posed a threat to the local cloth trade. Our vision is supported by a clearly defined purpose. As a research-intensive international university with a strong, enduring reputation we strive to:

  • create, advance and disseminate knowledge
  • develop outstanding graduates and scholars
  • make a major impact upon global society.
