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.
