In joining the University of Leeds you will become part of an internationally-focussed  University that provides all our students with an outstanding education and experience and at the same time undertakes cutting-edge research of high quality, impact and significance. Several other schools and research institutes, e.g. the Leeds University Business School (LUBS) and the Leeds Institute of Data Analytics (LIDA) provide significant opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and to develop research links with external partners in business, government and the third sector. The University is also a partner of the Alan Turing Institute.

The Faculty of Engineering & Physical Sciences holds the Athena Swan Bronze Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining and developing/promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET).
