Description

University of Leeds has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Our Geotechnical Engineering course covers the practical application of geotechnical engineering to reduce construction risk and optimise the design of geotechnical structures to ensure that they are safe, sustainable and resilient. There is an international shortage of geotechnical engineers yet the ground is the greatest area of technical risk in construction. Understanding this risk is the underlying philosophy of our Geotechnical Engineering degree at the University of Leeds.

About this university

International students

There are various resources on offer for international students attending the University of Leeds to assist them during their studies and outside them. These start with legal matters such as visas and immigration paperwork as well as financial advice. There are also support services to help integrate with the larger community and information about what is needed when arriving to study. Most of this is available through the International Student Office who can also offer assistance for students bringing their families with them or who are seeking work between their studies. There are also special events such as the weekly Global Café and the annual World Unite Festival. The Leeds University Union is a member of the National Union of Students and is available to support students during their time at Leeds as well as organising societies and volunteer opportunities. It operates the University Refectory in the main campus, which, on a night, is transformed to a 2000 person venue for live events with big names such as The Who and Bob Marley having performed there. There are also two bars and a café operated by the union and three nightclubs. Student societies number around 250 and include a newspaper, TV station and radio station run by students along with a large number of sports, with these having a particularly highly reputation. There are also a number of intramural recreational sports and fitness classes available. Performing arts groups range from dance to performance and many others while there are faith and cultural groups for those with articular interests as well as political groups involved in various matters both nationally and internationally.
