Information for Schools and Colleges

Useful information

This part of our website provides access to useful information and resources for teachers and careers advisers about study in Higher Education and at Leeds Beckett University.

Our liaison team provides a range of services to support schools and colleges such as visits onto campus, our staff and student ambassadors meeting you, summer school residentials and resources which you can use in the classroom.

The aim of this page is simple - to ensure people understand how higher education works, so they or those they support can make an informed choice about going to university.

Services we offer

  • Visit us - You can bring a group of students to our open days, campus tours or visit us at a UCAS Fair at a town or city near you.
  • We can come to you - We offer various in-school presentations and interactive workshops aimed at different groups of students on topics such as writing personal statements, changes to student finance and more. Current students can also come and talk to groups about what it's really like to study at university.
  • Summer Schools - We host a range of summer schools for all ages and interests, from primary to post-16 level.
  • Progression Module - Our study programme is designed to help young people through the higher education decision-making process. On successful completion students are awarded 30 UCAS points recognised by several local universities, including Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Trinity University College and the University of Huddersfield.
We can also organise bespoke visits to you on our campuses. We can offer specialist advice and activities to meet the needs of you and your students.

How long can I defer for? I have already deferred my place once.
Unfortunately, you are only allowed to defer for one year, If you have extenuating circumstances that may require your deferral for a further year then please email us at with full details of those circumstances so that your request can be considered. Please also provide your full name, UCAS personal ID and course.
I have applied for one course but I would like to apply for another course?
For UCAS applicants, you have 5 choices on application. If you have used up all your 5 choices you cannot make any more choices. However if you have made the wrong choice and you have not yet received a decision on your application then you could contact UCAS to substitute one of your choices. If you have already received a decision on your application and want to change then this is not possible and you may have to go through Clearing. For postgraduate, part-time and distance learning courses you can simply apply. For all courses it is important that you check the course availability and your application status. Please send an email to with your full name, UCAS personal ID and details of the changes that you would like to make.
