Why study a January start course

  1. Start your degree and graduate sooner

    When you join us in January 2021, your first year will be accelerated so you will be ready to start your second year in September 2021. You will graduate with a UK Bachelors degree in only 2.5 years!

  2. Receive an international scholarship

    You are eligible to receive a scholarship of up to £1,500 per year to help you fund your studies. 

  3. Allows more time to arrange visas, accommodation and travel

    Starting your course in January gives you a few more months to organise your application, visa and travel. This is more important than ever due to the disruption to many services caused by Covid-19. 

  4. Learn with fellow international students

    Our accelerated first-year Business courses were developed specifically for international students. It’s a great opportunity to learn alongside students from all over the world. 

  5. Experience the same excellent teaching and content

    Our accelerated first-year courses incorporate the same engaging methods of study and as our full-length courses starting in September. We provide excellent technical facilities and the opportunity to build relationships with professionals in the industry. 

  6. Receive hands-on support and a full welcome programme

    Our International Welcome Week will take place in January, giving you the chance to settle in at Leeds Beckett and make new friends. Our student support services will also be on-hand to help you adjust to life in the UK!
