  • UK law degrees: Leeds Metropolitan University

    Leeds Metropolitan University offering qualifying law degrees recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

    Leeds Metropolitan University is a university with two campuses in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It came into existence as a chartered university in 1992; prior to this date it was known as Leeds Polytechnic. On 1 August 2009, subject to Privy Council approval, the University will become Leeds Carnegie University. The number of students at the University is stated as 'around 30,000'.

    Professor Simon Lee is currently the Vice-Chancellor of the university, but his resignation was announced on 14 January 2009, and a successor has not yet been announced. On 11 July 2005 Brendan Foster took over as Chancellor from Leslie Silver OBE, the former Leeds United chairman. Foster resigned from this position on 12 January 2009. The university recently opened a multi-million pound Learning Centre building named in honour of Leslie Silver.

    In 2004 the university announced that it would not charge the full rate of ?£3000 per year (a figure of ?£2000 was announced instead) for tuition fees from September 2008, unlike most other universities in England.

    In November 2006, the University won the award for the 'outstanding contribution to the local community' at the annual higher education awards ceremony hosted by the Times Higher Education Supplement. It also came second in the main category, 'the University of the Year', which was won by the University of Nottingham. In this category, the University was highly commended for its 'low-charging, high impact' strategy.

    In June 2007, Leeds Met received recognition of its environmentally friendly attitude by being ranked number one in the UK in the Green League 2007; a ranking of sustainability in the higher education sector, compiled by People & Planet.
