Postcode search

This online postcode search can be used to find out whether you meet the Access to Leeds geographical requirement of "living in an area with low levels of participation in Higher Education."

Postcode eligibility is assessed using a combination of two datasets, Participation of Local Areas (POLAR) and Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD).

Please note that we are unable to assess applicants living outside of the UK or those from the Channel Islands or Isle of Man.

The postcode search is intended as a guide only. Eligibility can only be confirmed once your application has been fully assessed by the Access to Leeds team.
