Leeds Trinity University will celebrate its 50th anniversary in the 2016-17 academic year.

We’ve achieved a great deal in just 50 years, transforming from two small Catholic teaching training colleges to a university renowned for teaching excellence and highly employable graduates.

Leeds Trinity has always been characterised by this community spirit, so we’d love to celebrate our 50th anniversary with as many of you as possible. We’re planning a programme of events, activities and projects which will begin in July 2016 and run through to July 2017.

The programme is our way of saying thank you to the many exceptional students, staff, alumni, schools, businesses and individuals that have been a part of our journey, so we hope you can join us.

About Leeds Trinity University

A small university with a big reputation, Leeds Trinity University is renowned for teaching excellence and producing highly employable graduates. We were one of the first universities to embed professional work placements into every degree, and work with thousands of businesses annually to offer students degree-relevant industry experience.

We’re committed to delivering outstanding teaching led by research, scholarship and practice, which has earned us national acclaim for the quality of our teaching. Our teaching staff have extensive professional experience in their fields and many are active researchers, contributing to our increasing reputation for research excellence. We’re also investing in the development of the next generation of researchers, offering a growing number of fully funded PhD studentships each year.

Proud to be distinctive, Leeds Trinity is one of three universities in the UK with a Catholic foundation. Guided by our Christian ethos, we’re committed to ensuring everyone in our community, whatever their faith, feels supported and valued. Leeds Trinity has always been characterised by this sense of community spirit, offering a truly personalised university experience that has enabled students to flourish for 50 years.
