Why study a January start course

  1. Receive an international scholarship

    You are eligible to receive a scholarship of up to £5,000 to help you fund your studies. 

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

    Starting your degree  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. 

  3. Experience the same excellent teaching and content

    Our January start degrees incorporate the same engaging methods of study as our courses starting in September. We provide excellent technical facilities and the opportunity to build relationships with professionals in the industry. 

  4. 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. Our student support services will also be on-hand to help you adjust to life in the UK.
