International Student Advice

Our International Student Advice team is available to provide support for you throughout your stay here at Leeds Beckett.

We will help you to settle in and adjust although we realise that this may be difficult at first.

We hope you will find that Leeds Beckett has a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Our Adviser is available to talk to you in confidence to discuss any matter that may be troubling you.

Please contact the International Student Advice team on internationalstudentadvice@leedsbeckett.ac.uk if you need help and want to talk to someone about anything to do with studying and living in the UK. You may have questions about visa extension queries, family visits, dependants’ visas, police registration, changing immigration status, support whilst studying at the University, working after your studies and pre-departure support.

Appointments and workshops are available at City Campus and at Headingley Campus. Ask us a question at our Drop-in workshops every week. There is no need to book, just turn up and ask at the Student Hub desk.

Useful Information from UKVI Border Force

With summer holidays fast approaching, border controls at air and maritime ports will see a sizeable increase in passenger traffic as families, coach tours, school trips and students will take advantage of the time off to travel abroad.

Passenger education is a proven way to reduce long queues, waiting times and the complaints they bring. Border Force has developed a GOV.uk page explicitly designed to inform and prepare passengers for their arrival at the UK border.

The page notifies travellers of their options, including:
•    Whether the EU/UK or Non-EU lane is right for them
•    If they are eligible to use ePassport gates at airports
•    What they need to have ready and to hand prior to identity checks
•    How non-EU travellers can improve their UK border experience, with faster journey times through Border Controls by becoming a Registered Traveller member.  

To aid this, we have produced the Border Force Passenger Education Partner Pack, which is available to download.
