Current home and international students

As a Leeds Beckett University student, you have the amazing opportunity to study abroad for one or two semesters as part of your degree. The Study Abroad and Exchange programmes enable you to study at one of over 150 partner universities across the world with which Leeds Beckett University has formal exchange agreements.

You can spend one or two semesters abroad studying or working towards a faculty approved learning study plan, whilst earning credit towards your degree course at Leeds Beckett University.

As an exchange student you remain enrolled full-time at Leeds Beckett University while you are away, so continue to pay your tuition fees to us in the usual way. A student at your host university does the same in reverse, and the result is an exchange of students and places.

Don't forget that you would need to apply for the Study Abroad and Exchange programmes during your first year of study at Leeds Beckett University, so you can start thinking about it now.

International FAQs

Do I need to attend a course interview?
Certain courses require an interview as part of the entrance requirements. Please note that this is a requirement of our University and not part of the immigration process. This information is detailed in the course requirements section of the Online Prospectus. Please note: You will be required to evidence your English language ability through one of the qualifications listed in our University entrance requirements. This cannot be met through interview alone.
How will I make friends with other students?
To help you make friends with other international and home students, we run a mentor scheme and an International Social Network. Leeds Beckett International Mentors gives new students the opportunity to make new friends quickly and to benefit from the support and advice of current students keen to share their experience. We also run an International Social Network, which holds social activities and trips through-out the year and keeps you up to date with part-time work and other important information. For more details of all our mentor scheme or social network, please email Kathryn Firth.
What are the annual living costs?

In addition to tuition fees, we recommend that you budget to cover other costs, including accommodation, food, transport and social activities

It is difficult to suggest to you exactly how much money you will need to support yourself, as each person's circumstances will be different, but please see below for guidance:

Living expenses (including accommodation): £7,380
Please note that these living expenses are estimated and dependent on your lifestyle.
