Welcome to White Rose
Welcome to The White Rose University Consortium – A strategic partnership between 3 of the UK’s leading research universities, Leeds, Sheffield and York.
Since 1997 the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York have built on their individual strengths by collaborating through the White Rose University Consortium to add value from partnership activity in research, enterprise, innovation and learning and teaching. Working with a range of partners from the private and public sector, both in the UK and overseas, projects to the value of over £130M have been secured into the Universities. As the Higher Education sector undergoes numerous changes and challenges, our commitment to creating exciting collaborations remains and we continuously strive to achieve our aims of supporting research, knowledge exchange and teaching and learning.
