Information for students

The information on these pages brings together key information and guidance to be considered by students.

All students should follow Government guidance on how to stop the spread of Covid-19.

The university encourages students to take the Covid-19 vaccine and to support the city’s efforts to tackle infection rates.

Students should continue to take a test twice a week and before they travel away from university before the break.

Regular testing has the potential to identify anyone who may be asymptomatic (without symptoms) and is therefore unaware they have coronavirus. This will help break chains of transmission among households and reduce the risk of onward transmission. If you have symptoms, you must follow Government guidance and book an NHS test.

Testing is available at both our City and Headingley campuses. You can walk up for your tests.

Our Covid-19 test centre on Headingley Campus also serves as a collection point for rapid lateral flow tests. You can choose to collect your test to take away or use the booths on site. Help and guidance is available from staff on how to take these tests either at home or in the booths.

Please remember to record all results on the Government website. If you have any queries please email TestCentres@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.

Full details about booking and the answers to the most frequently asked questions are available on the testing section of our Coronavirus webpages.

The Prime Minister has confirmed that national Covid-19 restrictions will end on Monday 19 July.

We are all looking forward to welcoming you back to our campus in September, to enjoy the full student experience.

From the start of the next academic year, you will continue to have the opportunity to achieve the educational outcomes outlined in their course specifications, through face-to-face sessions and best practice online learning and support.

You will also be able to enjoy the full range of social and learning facilities on offer on campus, including access to libraries, study spaces, catering, bars, and sport and leisure facilities.

We will work closely with public health officials in Leeds to manage any outbreak of Covid-19 in our halls or on campus. If Covid-19 outbreaks are severe, we may be required by law to change our plans and introduce restrictions. If that happens, we have plans in place to make sure student progress in studies will not be affected.

You can find out more about our teaching and learning principles for the academic year 2021/2022 on our website.

Given that Leeds is currently experiencing very high infection rates, we are temporarily retaining our existing Covid-19 measures on campus over July and August, including social distancing and mask wearing. Testing will also remain available.

We've worked hard to make sure you feel safe and confident about returning to campus. You should continue to observe the current Public Health England guidance on ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’ as well as the current Covid-19 social distancing and safety measures in place on campus. Please remember to follow all guidance and signage and wear face coverings where designated. All buildings are clearly marked with a one-way system and regular hand sanitisation points. Please check our 'be safe on campus' pages for more information.

If you have Covid-19 symptoms you must book a test through the NHS Test and Trace Service. You should stay at your term-time address, self-isolate and inform Leeds Beckett through the online reporting form.

Please download the official NHS Covid-19 contact tracing app to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. You will see QR code posters around our campuses that you can scan using the app.
