Applying for an undergraduate course
If you want to study a three-year undergraduate course you will apply through a website called UCAS.com. All applications for UK undergraduate courses are made via this website - including applications from the UK, EU, and non-EU.
UCAS is currently accepting applications for September 2018 and will open for September 2019 applications from October 2018. If you want to apply for a part-time undergraduate course you will apply directly to us by clicking on the 'Apply Now' button at the top of the online course page - see the section 'Applying for a postgraduate course' below.
We've put together a useful diagram which shows you step by step the process of applying through UCAS:
Applying for a postgraduate course
You will be asked to create an account on our online application portal and complete your application via your Leeds Beckett account. Once you have submitted your application you should receive a decision within six weeks of applying. 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 submit your application you will need to upload copies of your:
- Academic certificates
- Evidence of your English language ability
- A reference to support your application – either academic or professional.
English language requirements
If your first language is not English then you will need to submit evidence of your English language ability. IELTS, Pearsons and TOEFL are the most widely accepted English language qualifications. But we do accept others.
If you’re unsure then do contact our Student Admissions team who will happy to guide you through which English qualification you need.
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.
You will then need to let us know whether you want to accept or withdraw your offer. You will either do this through the UCAS website, if you are applying for an undergraduate course, or by logging into your Leeds Beckett account in our online applicant portal.
If you need any help with your application, whether this is through UCAS or through our online application portal, contact our Student Admissions team who will be happy to help you.
