It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty Graduate School website. The University of Leeds is a world-leading, research-intensive institution with a strong international reputation for its research and taught postgraduate programmes, particularly in Medicine and Health and its allied sciences. The Faculty of Medicine and Health in Leeds is privileged with a central campus location, placing us in amongst our colleagues from Physics, Engineering, Chemistry, Social and Biological Sciences, and providing a wealth of opportunities for interdisciplinary research and teaching. Add to that the presence of two large Academic Hospitals, Leeds General Infirmary and St Jamess Hospital, which together constitute one of the largest NHS teaching hospital trusts in the UK, and the opportunities for ground-breaking research are boundless.
I invite you to become part of our Faculty as a postgraduate research student, and I hope that you will find these pages useful for finding the information you require. If you are already a Leeds postgraduate research student, I hope these pages are useful for reference. In case you require further information, feel free to get in touch with us.
I wish you every success with your studies!
Professor R A S Ariëns, Director of Postgraduate Research Studies
