  • As I’m presenting this for free we first have to view the sponsor’s ad … So this is the very basic context for our implementation: Leeds Met has been growing year on year since the nineties, In the 2008 – 09 academic year, we had over 30,000 students and 3,500 staff, on two locations – Leeds City Centre and our Headingley Campus.
