The Student Admissions Team manages the applications process for all prospective students from the UK and European Economic Area (EEA). This includes full-time undergraduate and some postgraduate applications through UCAS and the Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR) and full-time postgraduate and all part-time applicants through Apply Online.
The Student Admissions team is responsible for managing and administering our University's policies and procedures in relation to admission to our courses.
We are committed to the delivery of high quality, customer centred service. We are responsible for:
UCAS is the organisation responsible for managing applications to full-time undergraduate and some full-time postgraduate higher education courses in the UK.
UCAS oversees a tariff, which assigns points to all UK level 3 qualifications and some other relevant qualifications. These are a means by which universities can assess an applicant’s capacity to succeed on a specific course of study. These are assessed against a course’s defined entry requirements and most conditional offers are made on the basis of an applicant achieving a defined number of points, some of which must be from certain qualifications (normally A-levels or equivalent).
The Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR) is an admissions service that coordinates the applications for post-graduate teacher training courses. Trainee teachers who successfully complete a primary, middle years or secondary teaching course in the GTTR scheme will have the qualified teacher status (QTS) needed to teach in state schools in England and Wales.
Applicants should apply through GTTR for the following courses offered at Leeds Metropolitan University:
Apply Online is the means by which prospective students apply for the following courses:
The University offers a wide variety of post qualifying courses, postgraduate awards and other short courses to support the continuous professional development of a diverse range of professionals.
CPD applicants apply directly (not through UCAS) to the university and the management of the application process where an admissions decision is required is undertaken by Student Admissions. This process varies from course to course, or module to module, so please contact Student Admissions if you have a query regarding the application process for our CPD provision.
The Course Finder, previously known as the online prospectus, is the definitive source of information for prospective students. The Course Finder contains the entry requirements for all open, credit-bearing courses offered by our university.
Entry requirements displayed in the Course Finder are determined by those approved in the programme specification for the course. Guidance on making changes to the Course Finder or entry requirements can be found in the Admissions Procedures section to the right.
Publicly funded educational institutions charge two levels of fee: the lower ‘home’ fee and the higher ‘overseas’ fee. The level of fee a student will have to pay depends on whether they meet certain criteria. Fee status assessment is the means of determining whether a student qualifies to pay home fees and must meet all of the following criteria from one of ten categories, a list of which can be found in the links section.
Assessment is undertaken at the point of application and any applicant who is considered to have a pending fee status will be required to complete a fee status assessment form and provide us with relevant documentation to determine whether they fit into one of the ten categories. Once we are in receipt of all the relevant information, a decision will be made accordingly.
