There are a range of ways for students to develop their knowledge of sustainability at the University of Leeds, either directly through their studies, through self-led learning or by engaging in opportunities around volunteering, biodiversity, work placements and more. New students will get to hear about these opportunities during their student inductions, but you can also contact us at any point to find out more.
This short module is available for all students, and introduces you to the concept of sustainability and the most significant challenge the world faces: the climate crisis. It provides a great starting point for learning about sustainability whilst at Leeds.
If you're new to the University or want to build your knowledge, here’s a summary of the things you might want to know about sustainability and the opportunities you can get involved in.
