Being a Leeds Beckett Student
Leeds Beckett University and its Students’ Union are committed to working in partnership with our students to ensure that our University is an inclusive, safe and engaging learning environment which is conducive to study for its students and work for its staff.
Our Student Charter sets out how we can do this by working together to understand and fulfil our commitments to one another. To learn effectively both staff and students must actively engage with one another and we will support you to engage with all aspects of your learning as best you can.
Learning and Teaching at Leeds Beckett
To ensure we meet a high standard of quality, we continuously review our courses and teaching and are committed to make improvements or change practices if this benefits our students. An important role within this are our External Examiners, who are part of the quality assurance at Leeds Beckett.The Higher Education Review conducted by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) in 2014 confirmed that we fully meet UK higher education standards in all four judgment areas (setting and maintenance of standards; quality of student learning opportunities; quality of information about learning opportunities; enhancement of student learning opportunities).
