Leeds Trinity University is pleased to confirm that it will be seeking to obtain full University status, following the government’s announcement that the qualifying threshold for university title will be lowered from 4,000 to 1,000 students. The institution will be consulting widely on its proposed new title, Leeds Trinity University.
Leeds Trinity, which has over 3000 students, has been able to award its own degrees since 2009 and is a recognised provider of high quality university education.
Professor Freda Bridge, Principal and Chief Executive of Leeds Trinity University, said: “This is a very welcome development. It will reduce confusion and further recognise our exceptional achievements in preparing graduates for the world of work with high quality professionally focused degrees.”
