Information for teachers

Teachers and school groups are always welcome to join us at an Open Day. 

Take the opportunity to explore our facilities. Step into our state-of-the-art science laboratories where your students could make their first discovery, or view a final year art show in one of our gallery spaces. 

Let your pupils discover how Leeds could be their next chapter.

Teachers’ lounge

There’ll be a space on campus for teachers to catch up with work and relax.  

Access to wi-fi and morning refreshments will be available. Staff from our Educational Engagement team will be available to talk to you about how we can assist your learners.  

Travel bursary 

This year we are piloting a travel bursary scheme for schools. We understand that with the current pressures on budgets it is becoming increasingly difficult to fund transport to bring your students to campus. As this is a limited pot of funding, we may not be able to offer a bursary to all schools who apply, schools will be selected schools based on our widening participation criteria and location. To find out more email us at  

Coach booking

Limited spaces are available for coach parking, drop off and pick up on a first come, first served basis. As spaces are limited, please be mindful of the needs of other schools when making your booking.   

To book a space, please use our coach parking form.   

Once you register your school or college, we will send you an email with detailed parking information. This will include a map and directions. 

Please remember that a coach parking booking does not give you access to the Open Day sessions which must be booked separately.
