LEEDS So, why study in Leeds? Or let’s ask a different question – why wouldn’t you study in Leeds?

First Direct Arena

Regularly voted one of the UK’s best student cities, Leeds has it all – world-renowned culture, a legendary live music scene, amazing nightlife and some seriously tasty food options. Throw over 50,000 students from four universities, an international reputation for learning, and thousands of graduate jobs into the mix, and you’ll see why Leeds is the perfect city to start the journey towards your dream career.

Leeds Rhinos

Trinity Leeds shopping centre

The city for... graduate opportunities Leeds is home to lots of big employers. Our broad economy means there are jobs available in every sector, from finance and health, to the creative industries. It’s also the perfect city for students and graduates, with plenty of companies offering part-time work to fit around your studies and graduate schemes for when you’ve completed your degree.

14/02/2018 19:05


The city for... amazing nightlife In Leeds, you’ll find some of the best nightlife in the North of England. From bars and late-night bowling alleys, to club nights featuring everything from grime to indie, you won’t be short of places to have a good time. Plus, many places have student nights and offer great discounts. The hardest decision will be choosing where to go first.

The city for... legendary live music Leeds is known for its legendary live music scene. The renowned club night Back to Basics started here, and Leeds Festival is still going strong. Experience local bands and some of the biggest names in music, whether that’s in an intimate bar or the First Direct Arena.

The city for... strong sporting heritage Whether it’s Yorkshire County Cricket, Leeds Rhinos (Rugby League), Yorkshire Carnegie (Rugby Union) or Leeds United Football Club, Leeds is a sport-lover’s dream with stadiums at Headingley and Elland Road.

The city for... the best shopping Shopaholics, welcome to paradise. Leeds has something for every taste and budget, from the bargains at Europe’s largest indoor market, to the high street havens of Trinity Leeds and Victoria Gate.

TRINITY SPORT Our Trinity Sport team works in partnership with Leeds Trinity Students’ Union to make sure each of our students can access sports and physical activities, whatever their ability. We believe sport can play an important role in providing you with a complete and fulfilling university experience, no matter what your sporting ability or background. There are many ways you can get involved in sport at Leeds Trinity.

Give it a go! If you’re new to sport, try our ‘give it a go’ sessions which cover a wide range of sports including squash, rounders, golf and more! Another great way to make new friends and play sport on a weekly basis is by joining our campus sport leagues, which include six-a-side football and social netball. Whether you want to compete in your halls of residence team, as an academic course or just with your friends, our campus sport leagues are the right mix of competition and fun.

Representing the University If you want to represent Leeds Trinity in BUCS (British University and Colleges Sport), then our Students’ Union sports clubs are the perfect way to do so. You can join one of our teams or enter as an individual competitor in certain sports. We currently have representative teams in the following sports: badminton, basketball, cricket, cheerleading, football, futsal, rugby (union and league), netball and hockey. @SportTrinity

We’re proud to be home to a growing number of elite athletes who compete at regional, national and international levels. We understand that it can be challenging to juggle a sports career and a degree, so we’ve developed the Leeds Trinity University Athlete Support Package. Awarded on an annual basis, this is available to support students with managing their studies while playing at a high level.

LEEDS TRINITY STUDENTS’ UNION Leeds Trinity Students’ Union (LTSU) exists to empower and support students to reach their potential. When you become a student at Leeds Trinity University you automatically become a member of LTSU. This membership entitles you to join societies and sports clubs, be represented, and receive support and advice on every aspect of university life.

Entertaining you LTSU is at the heart of entertainment on campus, organising a diverse programme of events and activities throughout the year from Freshers’ Week to the Graduation Ball. There are clubs and societies for everything from film to cheerleading, and if you’ve got a real passion for something, we’ll help you start your own group. Have a look at current events and groups at ltsu.co.uk.

Representing you Every year, our students elect new representatives to run LTSU, so you can be sure that your voice will be heard. LTSU works with the University to enhance your course, campus and student experience by finding out what matters most to you and putting your ideas forward. Get involved as a course rep or committee member, or stand for a council role at the LTSU elections – maybe even as Vice-President or President. If you want to help other students have a great university experience, getting involved with LTSU is an ideal opportunity and something you can add to your CV.

Supporting you LTSU runs a student welfare service which provides confidential advice and support on health, wellbeing and safety. This includes a housing service which can help you if you move away from our campus accommodation to find the perfect home in Leeds’ nearby student-friendly areas.

LTSU was named ‘Students’ Union of the Year’ at the National Union of Students Awards 2017 @leedstrinitysu

THE CHAPLAINCY Friendship, faith and fun We liaise with various groups across the campus to arrange social, faith-based and charitable trips, events and activities that bring students of all faiths together. Everything we do is open to anyone – there is no Chaplaincy ‘membership’ and there is plenty to get involved with. Regardless of how faith guides you, our worship programme seeks to be diverse, accessible and relevant to you as a student. We offer regular Mass, daily silent Adoration, student-led sung worship, personal retreats, and a Chapel that is open every day for you to use for your own personal prayer and reflection – just pop in! We also host a multi-faith prayer space, which can be used for prayer or community worship. It’s open all day and evening for students of all faiths to use and is a spacious room with wash facilities and information about upcoming religious festivals. Our social programme is designed to foster genuine community and belonging for every student on campus. From hikes in the countryside and games nights, to six-a-side football and trips to Leeds; if it brings people together in a friendship-building environment, then we like to run it!

Our team is here to offer advice, support, or even just a listening ear, and our Chaplaincy Lounge is open every day and evening for a relaxed and friendly getaway on campus.

“The Chaplaincy is here to express the love of God to every one of our students and staff, whatever their background, belief or religion. Whoever you are, the Chaplaincy exists to serve and support you.” Hannah Hayward Lay Chaplain

Regardless of how much you do or don’t know about life’s big questions (who is an expert anyway?), our talks, discussion groups and lectures are designed to enable you to learn more about faith, morals, ethics, and the deeper stuff of life. Our service events enable students to get involved with serving some of the most vulnerable people in our society, including the elderly, the homeless, and many more who need our love and help.

TEACHING AND LEARNING Over the past 50 years, we’ve developed a strong reputation for the quality of our teaching. We’ve been recognised in league tables for teaching excellence, and The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 ranked us sixth out of all universities in the UK for teaching quality. We believe the secret to great teaching and learning is simple: it’s about creating an inclusive learning experience that allows all students to thrive.

Personalised support When you arrive at university, you’ll notice a big difference in the way you learn compared to school or college. Teaching is a mix of lectures and smaller seminar groups and tutorials, but the majority of your time will be spent learning independently.

Andy Gilliland, Academic Group Leader for Business

Feedback and communication

You’re not on your own, though, thanks to our Learning Hub. The team will work with you to make sure you’ve got the academic skills you need to succeed, giving you personalised support with all aspects of learning. You’ll also have regular opportunities to talk to your tutor one-to-one.

Our lecturers will give you feedback on your written work within an agreed time frame. The quality of our feedback has been highly commended by external examiners and university league tables, such as The Guardian University Guide 2017.

Expert lecturers

The right tools and technology

You’ll be taught by highly qualified and experienced staff, many of whom have extensive professional experience outside of the University. Thanks to their industry connections, you’ll also get access to a regular programme of guest lecturers from a wide range of industries.

We use a virtual learning environment (VLE) that lets you view documents, tasks and assignments for your course, as well as communicate with your lecturers. Handouts and notes are made available before and after lectures via the VLE, and we’ve invested in video-recording technology to make lectures available for you when you need them.

An international outlook Our courses draw on examples and case studies from a wide range of cultures and life experiences. They’re designed to be challenging and stimulating, helping you to develop strong knowledge and skills in your subject. We also encourage students to spend time studying abroad.

PROFESSIONAL WORK PLACEMENTS Experience matters. That’s why we pioneered the inclusion of professional work placements with every undergraduate degree. Forget everything you’ve heard about work experience. Our professional work placements aren’t about making cups of tea or running errands, they’re about giving you the chance to gain experience in a role that’s directly related to your degree. All our placements are part of an assessed module, which means that the experience you gain also counts towards your final degree classification. We’ll work with you to find the perfect professional work placement, whether that’s in Leeds, further afield in the UK, or even overseas. Your professional work placement is your chance to put what you’ve learnt during your degree into practice and gain valuable experience, contacts and employer references.

What’s involved? Our Placements team will work with you to find a suitable role. The team has over 3,000 employer partners across the UK, so you’ll have a huge range of potential placements to choose from. To make sure you get the most out of your placement, you’ll receive lots of support and preparation beforehand. This includes workshops and events, employer fairs and even a range of live ‘employer challenges’ to work on.

During your professional work placement, you’ll work on a real-life project or employer brief, receiving direct feedback from your employer about your progress, skills development and knowledge. This will help you identify your strengths and areas to improve, and give you ideas on how to become a valuable employee for any business.

Our placement partners Our employer partners cover a wide range of organisations and industries, including: • Marketing and PR agencies • Retail brands • Public sector and voluntary organisations • Media companies, including newspapers, magazines, radio and TV • Sports and health organisations • Businesses, including finance, property and recruitment • Schools, colleges and educational services • Local authorities You can even complete your professional work placement overseas – recent students have completed placements in Australia, South Africa and Thailand.

This preparation helps to boost your confidence and gives you a taste of what your placement will be like.

CAREERS When you need careers advice, you’ll have access to a team of advisers that’s here to help you make the most of career and employment opportunities during your degree.

• Finding a job during your studies, holidays and after graduation • Employment workshops, presentations and events

Tailored support Everyone’s career path is different. That’s why we offer support in a variety of ways, including one-to-one chats with advisers, drop-in sessions, employability workshops and recruitment fairs.

Volunteering Gain experience and make a difference by volunteering during your degree. Giving something back to the community is rewarding not just for the organisation you’re helping, but for you. Many of our students decide to put what they’ve learnt on their course into action by volunteering, working with a wide range of organisations across the UK and overseas. Volunteering abroad is an opportunity to expand your horizons, develop your skills and make a real difference to those who need it most. If you’re dreaming of volunteering abroad during your degree, we can support and guide you through your options.

STUDYING ABROAD Have a life-changing experience when you study abroad as part of your degree at Leeds Trinity University. Students on the majority of our undergraduate degrees can take advantage of our Study Abroad Programme during their studies. You could spend a semester abroad at one of our partner institutions across the world, earning credits towards your degree while having a life-changing experience. Don’t want to spend a whole semester abroad? No problem. We also offer short-term opportunities to study abroad, including summer schools at our partner institutions in Australia and Malaysia, and cultural trips to China, Thailand and Taiwan.

Why study abroad? The biggest benefit of studying abroad is experiencing a new culture first-hand. You’ll find out what it’s really like to live in a foreign country, whether that’s in Australia, Canada, Malaysia, South Korea, the USA or at one of our partner institutions in Europe. You’ll develop language and interpersonal skills as you mix with people from all over the world. Our students who study abroad often feel more confident, more mature, and develop skills that employers find attractive. Above all, studying abroad is FUN! You’ll make an international network of friends, travel to amazing places, taste new food from around the world and experience a different university lifestyle.

We are international We’ve got over 20 partner institutions around the world, and the list is growing every year. These institutions offer comparable study programmes for a huge range of our degree courses. Many of the courses teach in English, but some also teach in a foreign language which will help you develop your language skills. Plus if you’re a full-time undergraduate student at Leeds Trinity, there’s no extra tuition fee to study abroad.

Esther Nkomba BA (Hons) Accounting and Business

EDC PARIS BUSINESS SCHOOL “I have certainly benefited from studying abroad, because the experience has helped me discover who I am and what it is like to step away from my comfort zone: my friends, family and the environment in which I live. In addition to this, I experienced a new culture and a completely different way of living, which has allowed me to become more independent. I also made some amazing friends from around the world, who have helped me to create memories that I’ll never forget. Studying abroad is definitely something I would recommend if you have the opportunity, as it will provide you with invaluable skills that will definitely help you stand out for future careers and inevitably, create fond memories that will last a lifetime.”

AUSTRALIAN CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY “I chose to study abroad because it is a unique and rare opportunity to live amongst a culture different to your own, where you are able to have new experiences and make new friends from around the world. As a Television Production student, I benefited immensely from studying abroad, as not only did I make worldwide contacts but I was also able to pick up new and exciting filming techniques. I worked with industry specialists and came back feeling more experienced and knowledgeable in how a film set works. It has made me more independent in my field of study, and I now feel confident to follow my career path and perhaps even travel or work abroad! I can’t recommend studying abroad enough! They were some of the best months of my life and I’ll never forget the memories and friends that I have made.”

Damian Starr BA (Hons) Physical Education and Sports Coaching

ST FRANCIS XAVIER UNIVERSITY, CANADA “I wanted to study abroad as soon as I knew that it was an option for me at Leeds Trinity. I have always had a desire to travel, and this was a way of enabling me to do this and complete my degree. I chose to go to St Francis Xavier in Nova Scotia, Canada. The University is a bit bigger than Leeds Trinity, but still has a real close-knit community feel and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience to go and study there. I study Physical Education and Sports Coaching at Leeds Trinity, so I took courses in the Human Kinetics department while on exchange. The main benefits from going to St Francis Xavier University were that I was able to take part in a range of topics that I wouldn’t have studied otherwise. Not only this, but for all the modules I took, I had significant module time on practical work with children and people with a wide range of disabilities. This has now moulded what I plan on doing after I complete my degree. Aside from the academic part of my exchange, the people I met over there were really good people and the University ran fun and thought-provoking events. I ended up socialising with Canadian students in all years of their degrees, as I lived in an exclusively freshers hall and took classes with people in later years of their degree. I also spent time with other international and exchange students, which St Francis Xavier University has a really big cohort of. This helps with the acclimatisation, knowing you aren’t the only one adapting to life there (also the European exchange students threw the best parties!). I would recommend studying abroad to anyone that is able to, as it will enhance your university experience. You learn so much, from practical life experience to choosing what and how you want to learn. If I was able to have the opportunity to go again, I absolutely would.”

Criminology combines sociological and psychological approaches to understanding deviant behaviour and society’s response to criminal acts. You’ll explore a wide range of topics, from examining the role of the media in how we understand crime and justice, to explanations for serious violent crime by both individuals and the state. We’ll look at ethical issues arising from historical and cultural differences in the definition and management of crime, as well as how to understand people at the margins of both society and criminal justice, such as women and young people. Experience is crucial, so you’ll put theory into practice on your two professional work placements. You’ll benefit from our links with local criminal justice agencies, which will give you the chance to gain degree-relevant work experience. By the time you graduate, you’ll have a thorough knowledge of how the Criminal Justice System works, including how society is policed and individuals are punished. Using the key theories and practices of criminology, you’ll also develop critical thinking skills that will enable you to ask key questions about crime, deviance, and social control.

Placement opportunities You’ll complete two professional work placements as part of your degree. Our students have completed placements in a wide range of roles and organisations, including forensic hospitals, HM Prison Service, the Police National Computer, Leeds City Council anti-social behaviour project, crime prevention projects, charities that support ex-prisoners, charities that support the homeless and drug and alcohol abusers, and educational providers for children with behavioural problems.

About this course Stories touch all our lives. They focus on the things we care about, featuring issues we can explore about important human themes, individual identity or social and political patterns of behaviour. But to make sure they strike the right note with their audience, stories have to be constructed with care. They need to be planned, crafted, funded, produced and distributed. If you love a good story, whether in print or in film, indulge your passions and learn how to craft the perfect story by studying English and Film. You’ll learn about the film industry and discover how to analyse, discuss and write about film. You’ll study a range of modern literary texts in different genres, analysing how they work and how to compare them to great texts of the past. We’ll also give you plenty of opportunities to bring the two sides of your degree together, exploring topics such as how books have been turned into films, or films into books. Practical and professional experience is at the heart of your degree. You’ll have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the practical aspects of film-making such as camera, photography and lighting, or you can develop your scriptwriting skills. In each year, you’ll have the opportunity to produce your own creative writing, either for a creative project or in response to a text. You’ll also complete two professional work placements, working with employers from a wide range of creative industries.

Placement opportunities You’ll graduate with up to three months’ professional work experience, professional contacts and a clearer idea of your future career path. Our students have completed their placements at a wide range of organisations – from film production companies and recording studios, to local newspapers and MPs’ offices. If you’re interested in teaching, you could also experience working in a primary or secondary school.

About this course Does journalism have a place in a post-Trump world? Or is everything just ‘fake news’ nowadays? At Leeds Trinity, we believe high-quality journalism is more important than ever before.

We’ll teach you practical journalism skills such as how to find out and record information, how to develop stories and how to work effectively to set deadlines, as well as giving you a grounding in the key legal requirements for reporters.

You’ll explore the way politics is reported by – and interacts with – the media, including the influence of social media on political activity and operations. You’ll develop an understanding of key political and geopolitical processes, focusing on issues such as politics and the media, the representation of politics in popular culture and how modern terrorism is confronted and countered. And you’ll learn how to bring politics to life for news audiences, reflecting on broader social and cultural issues. By the time you graduate, you’ll have developed a wide range of journalism skills, political knowledge and a professional portfolio that will prepare you for a successful career.

By training to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage and the national curriculum, you’ll develop the right expertise and values to reflect these changes and ensure all children have access to high standards of learning. You’ll learn how experiential, play-based learning supports young children’s development and how, as an effective practitioner, you can have a positive impact on children’s development and learning.

You’ll gain an understanding of the transition to Key Stage 1 and develop knowledge of both the Early Years Foundation Stage and the national curriculum at Key Stage 1. Extensive school-based training will give you a deeper understanding of the Teachers’ Standards and how to apply theory to practice, while your alternative professional work placement will give you experience of teaching in special provision, schools abroad, museums or library services.

Placement opportunities In Year 1, you’ll visit schools in small groups to reflect on key principles of teaching and learning in core subjects. You’ll then complete a two-week induction placement followed by a six-week assessed block of school-based training.
