What makes us different

  • Making you more employable is at the forefront of what we do – that’s why we organise thousands of work placement opportunities every year. Don’t just take our word for it though, we are ranked 6th in the UK for Career Prospects (Whatuni Awards, 2022).
  • We’ll support you, from your application through to graduation, we have a dedicated team of student support services available, including a wellbeing team who are always there for you, should you need them.
  • We’re dedicated to providing high-quality teaching to suit your needs. You’ll be taught by expert lecturers, many of whom are producing industry-leading research.
  • We care about the environment. We are the first university in England to achieve an international environmental standard award. We’ve almost achieved zero waste too – only 1% of our waste goes to landfill. We're also proud to say that 8% of campus electricity is generated by solar panels.

I’m so happy I chose to study at Leeds Beckett University. The extracurricular activities, societies, teaching and facilities have exceeded my expectations. I can’t thank my lecturers enough for their support and encouragement, they have all been great. Leeds is an energetic city and the people here are fun, outgoing, and friendly – I love it.
