Applying to Leeds Beckett
Choose your course
The following information is for overseas students applying from outside the EU/EEA. Students from inside the EU/EEA should follow the advice here.
Before you apply the first thing is to decide which course you want to study. There are a few ways you can apply depending on whether you want to study an undergraduate or postgraduate course. If you have not yet decided on the course you want to study you can search our online prospectus.
Apply for your course
Applying for an undergraduate course
Apply through UCAS
If you want to study a three-year undergraduate degree you can apply through a website called UCAS.com – this is the University College Administration Service and all full-time undergraduate applications from the UK, EU and non-EU go through them.
We've put together a useful diagram which shows you step by step the process of applying through UCAS.
Apply directly to us
If you are only choosing Leeds Beckett and don’t want to apply for another undergraduate course in the UK, you can apply directly to us. You can do this by applying online or by downloading and filling out our application form.
You can only apply by one of the above options. It is also important to know that if you are applying directly to us for an undergraduate course you should not have an offer with UCAS.
Applying for a postgraduate course
You will be asked to create an account on our application portal and complete your application via your Leeds Beckett account. Once you have submitted your application you should receive a decision in due course. The exception to this is if the course you have applied for has a closing date specified. In this case, we will wait until the closing date has passed before we contact you.
What to include in your application
When you have completed your application, you will also need to upload copies of the following documents with your application:
- Academic Certificates.
- Evidence of your English language ability (see below).
- A photocopy of your passport.
- A reference to support your application – either academic or professional.
- A completed Agent Consent Form (required if you are applying via or with the help of an agent).
Once we have all the above documents we will then be able to look at your application and reply to you.
English language requirements
In order to apply to our University we will require you to submit evidence of your English language ability. To be successful at Leeds Beckett University, you will need to have a good level of English. The majority of our degrees require a minimum IELTS score of 6.0, with no skill below 5.5.
Please see a list of English language qualifications we accept by clicking the button below.
If you don't quite meet the entry requirements for one of our courses or need to improve your English language ability, we offer an International Foundation Year and a range of Pre-sessional English courses.
If you’re unsure about your language ability then do contact us and we will be happy to guide you through which English qualification you need.
Helping you apply
We are on hand to help you if you have any questions about your application and you can find our contact details below.
We also work closely with representatives and agency partners across the world who are available to help you with your application. Contact an agent or representative in your country.
After you apply
After submitting your application, we will send you your personal application ID number. You will be asked to quote this number when contacting us, so remember to keep it safe.
If your application is successful we will send you either:
- a conditional offer - this means we will require some additional information from you, such as exam results or some missing information in your application.
- an unconditional offer – this means that you have met all the entry requirements and have been offered a place on your chosen course.
Depending on the way you applied, you will be asked to accept your offer on UCAS or through our online application portal.
