Distance Learning Courses



After becoming a University College in 2009, the ambition for Leeds Trinity was to achieve full university status. It was only in 2011, when the Government announced that institutions with a minimum 1,000 students (previously 4,000) could apply. In 2012, Leeds Trinity University College became Leeds Trinity University.
