Upcoming webinars

Admission interviews and portfolio inspections
Tuesday 27 February 2018, 16:00pm - 16:45pm GMT
Dr Nick Cass, Lecturer and Undergraduate Admisssions Tutor, School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies and Dr Henry Greathead, Lecturer and Undergraduate Admissions Tutor, School of Biology

In this session our admissions specialists discuss why they interview, the different formats used for different courses, what candidates can expect on the day and how students can best prepare for their 1-2-1, group interview or portfolio inspection.

For the majority of its programmes, the University of Leeds does not require candidates to be interviewed as part of the selection process.  However some courses will interview applicants if it is felt this is the best method of identifying potential to study.  Our speakers - representing arts and science programmes - will explore the various interview styles your students may encounter and provide an insight on what admissions tutors are looking for.  Example questions and scenarios will be explored and what then happens after the interview.

Finally, there will be a live Q&A session after the webinar so you can put questions of your own to the panel.

Alternative admissions: the Access to Leeds scheme
Tuesday 20 March 2018, 16:00 - 16:45pm GMT
Hannah Mantle, Contextual Admissions Co-ordinator and Emily Towler, Access to Leeds Assistant

Find out more about Access to Leeds (A2L), our undergraduate widening access scheme which allows us to identify the best possible applicants regardless of background.

We understand that A level grades alone cannot tell us everything about an applicant and their abilities. Accordingly, the University runs - in parallel with its standard admissions process - an alternative pathway which guarantees special consideration for applicants whose personal circumstances have affected their ability to demonstrate talent and potential through their academic record. Students eligible for the scheme will will receive a standard offer for their chosen course at Leeds in addition to an Access to Leeds offer which is two A level grades or equivalent below the standard offer.

Our panelists will discuss; how the scheme works, who is eligible, the application process and the financial support packages available.
