The Leeds Beckett Global Village is made up of students and staff who are here to help you settle in, share your culture, and make new friends.
Here are just some of the ways that Global Village can help you have a smooth and enjoyable first few weeks at Leeds Beckett:
- Our Meet and Greet service will help you get to your accommodation once you arrive in the UK
- We host a full programme of International Welcome Events, in addition to regular social events throughout the year
- The Global Buddies scheme will match you with a current Leeds Beckett student who will help you adjust to uni life, and support you as a friend. If you're a current student, you can also volunteer to be a Global Buddy!
- There’s also our Global Ambassador scheme, which is a paid work opportunity for current students to be the ‘face’ of our global community on and off campus
If you have questions about arriving in Leeds and settling in, please drop us an email at GlobalVillage@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.
get involved in our monthly events
Our Global Village Team put on Virtual Café and Speed Friending events every month, allowing you to be in regular contact with other members of our international student community. So don't forget to put next month's events in your calendar!
