These pages are for existing LAU/University of Leeds students only.

Following a review with University of Leeds of our module and programme portfolio, we are not recruiting new students for 2017/18 (either in the autumn or the new year).

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Timetables for existing students undertaking practice-based modules running in October 2017 can be found via the readings page.

About the Training Department

Established in 1984, the Leeds Addiction Unit Training and Research department has specialised in the training of professionals to manage the problems of substance misuse for over thirty years.

As of 1 December 2016 we are no longer recruiting new students to our programmes and modules. Changes in demand along with pressures on both NHS and higher education funding has resulted in the closure of many addiction training centres. The department will close once the current cohort(s) of students have completed their programmes of study.

We are proud to have worked in partnership with University of Leeds and are grateful for their support down the years.

If you are looking to enter higher education and study addictions and/or substance misuse then you will find a wealth of information of what is available at the Society for the Study of Addiction [SSA] Knowledge Hub.
