We are fully aware of the impact that the current situation could have on your plans to study with us at Leeds, with a large number of schools and universities around the world being closed, as well as IELTS and visa centres. We want to reassure you that the University of Leeds is taking all necessary steps to ensure that we can be as flexible as possible in terms of our academic and English language entry criteria, submission of documents and our arrival and start dates. The situation is fast changing and whilst we can’t give specific case by case information for everyone at this stage, we will be updating our information in the near future with more specific details once they are confirmed.
