Leeds Met to change name

Leeds’ other uni wants a new name


In a move that will change Varsity chants forever, Leeds Met are planning to change their name.

Vice Chancellor Susan Price said they were considering switching identity because the university had outgrown its metropolitan name.

The potential names Leeds Beckett, Leeds Headingley and Leeds Ridings University are being considered.

Angry Met students have reacted badly to the news, starting a Facebook group to protest against the name change.

A member of the group, Rob Lazenby said: “Basically the general feeling is that the three names they have come up with are poor.”
