Studies to fit around your lifestyle

Whatever your needs – you may be in full-time work, have childcare commitments or play for a sports team – we’ve gone to great lengths to make sure our University is the right place for you.

We've designed our courses to help ensure the opportunity to study is there for everyone. We offer part-time courses, evening classes, distance learning and online courses with a variety of start dates. For more information contact our Admissions Enquiries Team on admission-enquiries@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.

24/7 library

Our libraries are open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and offer more than just books; you can borrow laptops and camera equipment, print and photocopy, book a presentation room or attend free Skills for Learning workshops. If you can’t come to us, access the Library website and search over 100,000 electronic books, journals and newspapers from home, work or wherever you choose to study.

Skills For Learning

Skills for Learning is designed to help you develop essential academic skills such as academic communication, maths, problem solving, critical thinking, IT skills, working with others and research skills.

The Skills for Learning website is accessible to current staff and students via a login. A Skills for Learning Preview site is available for you to get a taste of what you’ll be able to access to support your studies.

At Leeds Beckett we are committed to helping you get the most out of your studies, as well as building the skills you need for success in your future career.

Money in your pocket

If you’d like to earn money while you study, get in touch with our Jobs and Careers team. Our team can help you find temporary work and develop your employability skills.

Childcare

We’re a child-friendly university, and have rooms on campus for breast feeding and baby changing. Our Childcare Co-ordinator can also give you information on local childcare, including nurseries, child-minders, out-of-school clubs and play schemes.
