University of Leeds




The antecedents of the university were Leeds School of Medicine, founded in 1831, and Yorkshire College of Science, founded in 1874. These combined in 1884, eventually to form a constituent part of the federal Victoria University (founded 1887). The university received its charter in 1904.
