The Making a World of Difference Campaign is genuinely transforming our University – nurturing the talent and aspirations of young people, developing world class facilities and supporting research whose impact will be felt far and wide.

Further investment will be critical to Leeds in achieving our ambitions and making important contributions to our region, nation and the wider world. In a globally-competitive environment, we cannot rest content if we are to continue to attract the best students and staff, and to make the greatest possible contribution to new knowledge.

Your support for these projects will advance all our strategic priorities: enriching our student education, growing our research, developing our campus and extending our impact.
