The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey goes live!

The feedback of all students not least distance learners is really important to the university, and so we’d like to invite you all to complete the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey.

Planning on visiting the Library over the Easter break?

Even though it was snowing in Leeds this morning, spring is definitely in the air – the daffodils are blooming and that means it’s not long to the Easter vacation.

Can’t remember which Library books you previously borrowed?

We’re all busy people these days with a thousand and one things to think about.

What’s on in Leeds

I know that some of you come to Leeds as part of your course and that others conduct all of your studies remotely. If you ever get the chance to come to the city, please do come and say hello to the Offsite team, we are always keen to meet our students in person! We are based in room 405 in the Sheila Silver City Campus Library.

Managing your student email account

It is really important that you check your student email account on a regular basis as this is how the university will communicate with you. This is because your student email address is secure and doesn’t change, please see the library website for further information on how to access your student emails.
