Description:
Leeds Trinity University College is an independent higher education institution which offers foundation and undergraduate degrees, as well as postgraduate qualifications. Previously Leeds Trinity & All Saints, the institution became a university college in 2009 after gaining the right to award its own degrees, thereby signalling the end of a long standing affiliation with the University of Leeds.

History

Leeds Trinity opened in 1966 as two Roman Catholic teacher training colleges for Yorkshire - Trinity College for women and All Saints College for men. The two colleges merged in 1980 to form Trinity and All Saints College.

During the 1970s new academic divisions were introduced including humanities, languages, Mathematics and Sciences and Social and Environmental Sciences, enabling students to specialise in another subject in addition to their teacher training. The Postgraduate Certificate in Education was introduced for prospective secondary school teachers.

After the college merger in 1980, the degrees became more modular in design enabling students to undertake wide-ranging professional studies and explore different occupational routes, with the BEd being phased out by the end of the decade, and postgraduate teacher training offered at primary and secondary level.

During the 1990s postgraduate provision was extended beyond Education to Journalism, Victorian Studies and research degree opportunities and a number of single honours academic programmes were launched.
