Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) Collection
Leeds Beckett is now an Alternative Collection Location for your Biometric Residence Permit, which is your permit (visa) for being in the UK. This means that you can have your BRP delivered to the University, and you can collect it from us at International Check-In (City Campus only). When you apply for your Tier 4 visa, you can select this option on the BRP collection page by using our ACL Code: 3HE237.
If you do not choose to use the ACL code, you will have to collect your BRP from a designated Post Office.
The advantages of using the ACL code are:
• Safe and secure delivery of your BRP to the University
• The University will contact you once your BRP is ready for collection
• No queues or repeated visits to a Post Office to collect your BRP
• Quicker processing at International Check-in when you arrive at the University
International Welcome Week
Once you arrive, you can take part in many different events to help you settle in. This is a great way to meet other new students and sign-up to join societies and book some of our events and trips. Welcome Week takes place between 20 - 24 January 2020. Take a look at the full Welcome Week schedule here!
Start making friends
There are many opportunities to meet new people and start making friends when you arrive at Leeds Beckett. Our International Social Network arranges social activities, trips, clubs and societies. Follow our Facebook group to keep up-to-date with trips, social events, part-time job opportunities and much more.
International Social Network
During your time at Leeds Beckett we will organise a variety of activities for you to join, including trips to UK attractions such as Alton Towers Theme Park and the historical city of York. Take part in community events around Leeds and celebrate UK holidays such as Bonfire Night and Burns Night.
Leeds Beckett Buddies
When you come to a new environment - whether it is a new country or university - it can sometimes take a little while to settle in. Our 'Meet a New Buddy' event is here to help. Current international and UK students provide support, advice and their valuable experience.
But most importantly it is a great way to make new friends and learn about the social side of Leeds Beckett in the first few weeks of arriving in Leeds.
Social clubs and events
We also work with the tourism company Don't be a tourist who has selected top destinations in the UK and Europe for you to explore. Please note that the cost of these excursions is not included in your course fee.
There are loads of events on every day across Yorkshire - make the most of your time and check out What's on in Yorkshire.
