The Leeds Curriculum
The Leeds Curriculum provides students with an outstanding education through our pioneering approach to teaching. Students at Leeds are encouraged to broaden their intellectual horizons and make the most of a wealth of co-curricular activities. This equips them to succeed in a competitive global employment market and to make a difference to the world around them.
About the Leeds Curriculum
The Leeds Curriculum aims to produce graduates who stand out as a result of the knowledge, skills and attributes they have gained.
Broadening education choices
Students can broaden their intellectual horizons outside or within their subject areas through discovery themes and other opportunities made available to them.
Core Programme Threads
The Core Programme Threads should be incorporated into all programmes in the context of the discipline to guarantee that all students are exposed to each of them, whatever programme or modules they take.
Enhancing teaching and research-based learning
Research-based learning has always been at the core of our programmes. This page defines what research-based learning is and highlights the benefits of this approach.
Final year project and assessment
All students at the University undertake an autonomous piece of research work known as a final year project as the culmination of their programme.
