About Tetley & Lupton

The University of Leeds was founded in 1904, but our origins go back to the nineteenth century with the founding of the Leeds School of Medicine in 1831 and the Yorkshire College of Science in 1874. In 1831, a group of young men established the Leeds School of Medicine which meant that medical students no longer had to go to Scotland, London or overseas to study. The Yorkshire College of Science was founded around 40 years later, largely because the wool and textile industries worried that the rapid development of new technologies in Europe posed a threat to the local cloth trade.

Excellence and Innovation

Our community of researchers brings together excellence and innovation, pushing the frontiers of knowledge and discovery to shape a better future. This involves creating, nurturing, and promoting an environment in which people work together across disciplines and with partners to solve complex problems. The result is truly transformational,l fundamental and challenge-led research that advances knowledge and creates solutions to local, national and global challenges.

Improving Access To Education

For the sons of local families, the Yorkshire College of Science was one of the first colleges for students of all faiths and backgrounds. The College supported the values of the recently established University College in London and Owens College in Manchester. These colleges had been set up to challenge the exclusivity of Oxford and Cambridge universities, which were predominantly for the Anglican aristocracy and gentry. By contrast, this new generation of learning institutions welcomed students from all religions, including dissenters, Catholics, Jews and agnostics.

The Victoria University 

The colleges also focused on meeting the technological demands of the fast-changing Victorian era. From the beginning, the Yorkshire College of Sciences put its full weight behind scientific studies. After a few years, it also started to offer courses in classics and modern literature and was renamed the Yorkshire College.

In 1884, the Yorkshire College combined with the Leeds School of Medicine and three years later the two Leeds-based institutions joined forces with Owens College Manchester, and University College Liverpool, to become the federal Victoria University.

Becoming the University of Leeds

Within a few years, the number of students began to increase rapidly and changes to state education meant that students were arriving with a better educational foundation. The ten years before the outbreak of war in 1914 were ones of growth and consolidation. Most importantly, the new University of Leeds started to develop the strong tradition of research we are still known for today.

Unlike Owens College Manchester, the Yorkshire College had always allowed women to study there. However, women did not enrol in significant numbers until special facilities were provided at the Day Training College in 1896. The first woman graduated from the University of Leeds in 1905.

Going Global

At the time that the University of Leeds received its Royal Charter, seven out of eight students came from Yorkshire. Now, we welcome students from all over the world as a truly multicultural and international university. 


The University of Leeds is an independent corporation established by Royal Charter, granted in 1904. The University’s objects, powers and framework of governance are set out in the Charter and its supporting statutes, amendments to which must be approved by the Privy Council.

The University is an ‘exempt charity’ under Schedule 3 of the Charities Act 2011. The University does not have a registered number issued by the Charities Commission but is in law a charity by Royal Charter. Our reference number with the charity division of HM Revenue and Customs is X6861.
