Watch | Creating a world of endless opportunities

“HELIX is for everyone – it’s a really amazing space that brings together creativity, innovation, technology and design. The opportunities are endless.”

On the eve of the official launch of HELIX – our innovative digital learning space – Dean of Online and Digital Education, Dr Margaret Korosec, is joined by Community Development Manager, Kerr Hunter, in a new video outlining how this state-of-the-art facility will become a thriving hub for all digitally focused activity at Leeds.

The University prides itself on its values-driven approach to everything we do, and the work we’re undertaking in the digital space is no different. We want to provide a transformative, research-based educational experience for students from diverse backgrounds, who develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed and make a positive impact in the world.

HELIX is the culmination of years of planning around digital investment for staff and students. Not only is HELIX a hub of learning, it’s a mix of multi-purpose spaces for events and conferences, team building, networking activity and public engagement, featuring immersive technologies, maker and prototyping equipment and cutting-edge multimedia production studios.

It will provide a dedicated space for staff, students and the wider community to collaborate on innovative and entrepreneurial projects based on their own initiatives and creative ideas. The facilities are open to anyone wishing to forge a community of digital minds in a collaborative setting.

Hear how HELIX will empower and embed digital literacy skills across the University and beyond, and discover how you can take advantage of a golden opportunity to test drive these amazing facilities for yourself during Leeds Digital Festival 2023 and explore a world of immersive technologies.
