Getting ready for university life can feel daunting. From knowing what to bring, to opening a student bank account, we know there's a lot to think about.

But dont worry, in these pages, we've pulled together some top tips and guides that we think will help you in your first few weeks and beyond. There's an opportunity to sharpen up your academic skills with some online modules and tests and you'll hear from our students about what to expect from life at Leeds Beckett and things they have found helpful along the way.
