Leeds Metropolitan University is a not for profit university with the charitable purpose of advancing education for the public benefit.
Surpluses are reinvested in the university for the benefit of our students and the wider community.
Our vision that drives our strategic plan, is to be acknowledged for our commitment to student success, our innovation and enterprise, our global reach and our strong local impact.
We are committed to widening participation in higher education. We have a bursary scheme that will support those students in receipt of a full Higher Education Maintenance Grant, or Special Support Grant. Each year we facilitate a programme of activities which seek to raise the motivation, aspiration and attainment of over 15,000 young people. Activities are targeted primarily at those who traditionally would not have considered progression into Higher Education, principally within the Yorkshire region, but also across the country.
Our university makes a significant contribution to the regional economy. As well as a provider of high quality graduates, we support business and the wider community through the provision of high quality research and consultancy services. It is estimated that over £350m of economic activity within the region is dependent on the university’s teaching, research and other activity.
The financial year at our university runs from 1 August to 31 July.
