Event description

Leeds admissions: demystifying the selection process

Thursday 2nd November 2017, 4:00pm - 4:45pm GMT

Hilary Steel, Policy and Qualifications Officer, University of Leeds

Learn about the admissions process at Leeds; how we assess your students' applications; the facts, the common misconceptions and how you can help maximise your students' chances of securing a place at the University.

Competition for places on undergraduate programmes at Leeds is high and meeting the eligibility requirements is not always a guarantee of admission. This session provides an insight into the decision making process at Leeds, discussing the extent to which each aspect of the applicant's profile matters, how the different aspects influence each other and how they are used in conjunction to arrive at a final decision. It also corrects some of the common fallacies about the admissions process and highlights pitfalls that should be avoided by applicants.

The session will also explore application rates to Leeds, the landscape for 2018 entry and the changes affecting university admissions such as qualification reforms and the EPQ.

There will be time at the end of the session for you to put your questions to Hilary. If you have any specific questions you would like to put forward in advance, please email

The Journey to medical school

Wednesday 6th December 2017, 3:30pm - 4:30pm GMT

Dr Gail Nicholls, Director of Admissions, School of Medicine & Mrs Nicky Danks, 
Widening Participation and Admissions Co-ordinator, School of Medicine

The first UCAS deadline for 2018 entry has now passed. Prospective medicine and dentistry students have clicked the submit button on their applications and are most likely wondering - what is happening now? 

Panellists from the University’s School of Medicine; Dr Gail Nicholls, Director of Admissions and Mrs Nicky Danks, Widening Participation & Admissions Co-ordinator will take you through the journey of your students’ applications which will include:

  • what is happening with their applications right now 
  • the different stages of screening and scoring 
  • when your students can expect to hear back 
  • guidance on how you can support your students through the selection process, through to results day 

The session will also explore the format, structure and role of Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) which start taking place at the University in January. To help you prepare your students, example questions and scenarios will be considered, along with advice on the dos and don’ts on the day. 

Finally, there will be a live Q&A session after the webinar so you can put questions of your own to the speakers.
