Get to know our global engagement officers

As graduates of Leeds Beckett University, our global engagement officers are here to support all international students. You will meet them at Global Village events and see them on campus. If you have questions about studying abroad as part of your course, participating in upcoming events, or general student life, the global engagement officers can help! Read more about them, and get in touch with them below.

global BUDDies SCHEME

The Global Buddies scheme aims to help new students transition smoothly to life at Leeds Beckett University, and make new friends and connections in the process. New international students can request to be paired up with a Global Buddies volunteer, who is a current student dedicated to supporting international students’ arrival and helping them settle in!
