Leeds Trinity University College: A Community Atmosphere and High Level of Excellence

Finding the right independent higher education institution for graduates and students is increasingly important for success in the jobs market. Find out why Leeds Trinity University College offers great opportunities in higher education.

The quality of Leeds Trinity University Courses is hard to beat. The institution is consistently recognised by professional bodies, and students regularly give them a vote of confidence, giving consistently good feedback in the National Student Survey.

In 2010 Leeds Trinity University College jumped 30 places in the rankings to top the second quartile of institutions. At Leeds Trinity we believe it’s important to think about the long-term benefits that higher education offers, and we’re very proud of the fact that 93% of our graduates go on to employment or further study within six months of graduation*.

Two of the 2009 graduates explain how their Leeds Trinity degree has led to career success.

Richie Anderson is now a broadcast journalist with the BBC. He says, “Immediately after graduating, I started my job with the BBC as a broadcast journalist for BBC Radio West Midlands in Birmingham. I love my job as it’s incredibly varied and fast-paced, and I’m using all the skills I learnt during my degree course. The teaching was very hands-on and challenging which means that when you go out into the world of journalism you have a good sense of editorial judgement. The skills I learnt in radio broadcasting, as well as the advice from my lecturer were a massive factor in me landing my job. She gave me the confidence to go out and get into the media during the recession.”

Deciding to go to university is a big decision, more so than ever with the proposed changes to fees and funding. The institution became a University College in September 2009, following the granting by the Privy Council of Taught Degree Awarding Powers and most of our degree courses include professional work placements.

We also have extremely well-established links with local business, industry and schools (as part of our PGCE courses), which offer opportunities for our students to gain relevant experience and get a head start in the job market.

Primary school teacher, Laura Kirsten Taylor, says, “My Primary Education degree at Leeds Trinity gave me the academic knowledge I needed as well as extensive opportunities to practise and develop my teaching and interactive skills in the classroom as part of the course. As a result, upon graduation, I secured a permanent position as a teacher at a thriving primary school in Halifax. My experience here has been fantastic as it’s a large, multi-cultural school and I continue to build upon the great foundation that Leeds Trinity gave me to develop my professional skills. I would say if you want to become a school teacher, apply to Leeds Trinity!”

Our highly-qualified and experienced teaching staff are passionate about their subjects, and committed to delivering a stimulating learning experience to enable you to reach your full potential.

What’s more with around 3,000 students studying for full and part-time degrees, Leeds Trinity retains a community atmosphere which provides a supportive and friendly environment to help people realise their full potential.
