Welcome to the November newsletter


We were delighted to welcome back alumni this month for in-person and virtual talks at Journalism and Media Week. Our recent graduates (pictured above) inspired our students with their success stories despite only graduating recently. All sessions throughout the week were recorded and can be found on the Leeds Trinity YouTube page.

We are now looking forward to welcoming back members of the Class of 2021 in December for our winter graduation events. 

More journalism successes

We are also very proud to announce that two alumni, who have been Journalism and Media Week guest speakers, have recently been named in the Radio Academy’s prestigious 30 Under 30 list. Xanthe Palmer (pictured with Katherine Blair) and Alice Young were both named as 'ones to watch' in the future.

2021 Carol Service

Join us for a festive evening of candlelit carols, readings and reflections as we celebrate our annual Leeds Trinity University Carol Service on Tuesday 7 December at 7.00pm in the Chapel.

Please book your place by Friday 26 November.

Celebrating sport at Leeds Trinity

We are extremely proud to have such a rich history of sporting successes at Leeds Trinity. This comes from both our team successes as well as achievements of individuals who have studied a sports course or competed at an elite level.

In November we mounted a number of sports tops, which had been kindly donated, that have been worn over the years. See more images.

Featured alumni – Matthew Baxter

Matthew graduated in 2021 from Physical Education and got much more than a degree.

"The University really helped not just academically but through the social side too."

Like many students, he decided to continue his learning journey with us after completing his undergraduate course.

"I knew Leeds Trinity was a renowned teacher training provider so it was an obvious choice to complete my teacher training at the place that I’d called home for the previous three years."
