At UTC Leeds students study a broad and balanced curriculum, designed to enable them to study a range of subjects whilst also focusing on our specialist areas in engineering and advanced manufacturing technologies

'As well as achieving the full range of GCSEs and A Levels, students are able to work with leading employers from the region to develop and nurture specialist engineering and creative thinking skills.'
