Cohort 1

‘250 Great Minds’ started in October 2014 when we announced our intention to recruit 250 exceptional academic fellows over a three year period. In 2015 over 75 of you joined us on a journey which we hope will have great significance for both your career and the University of Leeds.

The first year of the development programme is now complete and we hope that you have found it useful, thank you to everyone that provided us with feedback.  The second year of the programme will start later in the year and courses will be available to book through this website in due course.  We encourage you to use this website to keep up to date on both UAF news and the central development programme over the coming years.
