Designed to suit your needs
Whether you're studying for a BA, BSc, a Foundation degree or any other qualification, we design our courses to be as flexible as possible.
You can study in ways to suit you and your life – and in some cases, you don’t even need to be on campus.
Our online prospectus will tell you more about the course options available. Here is a quick guide to our study modes.
A full-time honours degree usually takes 3-4 years. A full-time foundation degree or HND usually takes 2-3 years.

Studying part-time means you can fit your studies alongside work or family commitments. Typically a part-time honours degree takes 6 years. A part-time foundation degree or HND usually takes 3-4 years.

A sandwich course combines study with valuable work experience. For one year you go on placement within your chosen industry - this usually takes place between the second and third year of your degree, making it a ‘sandwich’. These courses will typically be for 4 years. Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation.
Distance Learning and e-learning
With distance and e-learning, you don’t have to be on campus to learn. You can study at home or wherever you want to be. You learn through self-study, using web-based and printed resources.

To get even more from your university experience, why not spread your wings and spend some time studying abroad? On most of our courses you can study for one or two semesters abroad. Not only do you discover exciting new places and cultures, but this once-in-a-lifetime experience can really boost your future job prospects. You’ll be learning new skills that are much prized by employers.
We offer two types of programmes:
- Erasmus exchange – within Europe
- International exchange – outside Europe

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 email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
with your full name, UCAS personal ID and details of the changes that you would like to make.
What evidence do you require from me to confirm my place?
If you applied through UCAS, it is likely that we will receive some, if not all of your examination results via UCAS. If you have been asked to send your results in to us, this will be detailed on your offer letter/UCAS Track. It is very important that you do so as soon as possible after receiving your results. They can be faxed to us on 0113 812 3144 or scanned to email@example.com if you applied via UCAS. If you applied directly to us, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you have put your name and Personal ID/Leeds Beckett number on the correspondence to avoid any delays in confirming your place with us.
