The University of Leeds soon followed suit and had been granted a royal charter as an independent body by King Edward VII by 1904.
The Victoria University continued after the break-up of the group, with an amended constitution and renamed as the Victoria University of Manchester (though "Victoria" was usually omitted from its name except in formal usage) until September 2004.
The university's history is linked to the development of Leeds as an international centre for the textile industry and clothing manufacture in the United Kingdom during the Victorian era.
The university's roots can be traced back to the formation of schools of medicine in English cities to serve the general public.
The university has 31,790 students, the seventh largest university in the UK (out of 166).
