Please read these terms and conditions carefully

About us

The online application system is provided and operated by Leeds Beckett University (the 'University') whose address is The Rose Bowl, Civic Quarter, Leeds LS1 3HB, UK. If you have any queries about the online course finder or the online application system, please contact directadmissions@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.

Eligibility to use the online application system

The online application system should only be used by applicants to part-time undergraduate courses, and full-time and part-time postgraduate courses (with the exception of Postgraduate Certificate of Education [PGCE] courses). Applicants for full-time undergraduate courses should contact the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) at www.ucas.com for information on how to apply. Applicants for PGCE courses should contact the Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR) at www.gttr.ac.uk for information on how to apply.

Course Information

The University makes every effort to advertise courses accurately, at a level of detail which is useful to inform student choice. It is sometimes necessary, however, to make changes to the courses offered and to the content of those courses, and therefore procedures set out below will be followed in making substantive changes. Substantive changes would include material course content or delivery location. Where the University makes a substantive change to a course before it commences, it will do so as early as possible and it will consult students regarding the change. It will seek to minimise the impact of these changes wherever possible. Where an applicant does not wish to continue with the application form they may withdraw their application by contacting directadmissions@leedsbeckett.ac.uk. Where an application has been assessed as successful and the Student does not wish to continue, they will have the right to cancel their Contract according to the process set out in the Student Contract.


Submitting an online application does not form a Contract between you and the University and does not in any way represent or guarantee that you will be offered a place of study on the course for which you have applied. Once the University has received your application via the online application system, you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of your application. If you have not received an automated confirmation email within 10 working days of submission please contact directadmissions@leedsbeckett.ac.uk. The University will consider and process your application in accordance with its admissions policy, a copy of which is available on request from directadmissions@leedsbeckett.ac.uk. It is your responsibility to ensure that the details of your online application form are correct before clicking the submit button, in particular in relation to the course name, the course code, and the year the course starts. Mistakes on your application form may cause delays in processing it.


  • In submitting an application to the University via the online application system you are agreeing to disclose to the University full and accurate academic and personal information as required for applications for admission, registration and enrolment purposes.
  • You shall inform the University if there is any change to the academic or personal information that you have provided during the admission process as soon as is reasonably practicable.
  • If, during the admission process or subsequent to registration or enrolment, the University discovers that you have withheld, or provided inaccurate, material academic and/or personal information, you shall be treated by the University as having acted in bad faith. As a consequence, the University may terminate your application or your Contract.
  • You shall also inform the University of any unspent criminal convictions when applying to the University for admission. Students on some courses may also be required to declare spent convictions and/or undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check due to a legal requirement or a requirement of a professional, statutory or regulatory body. Please refer to your course or programme of study details for further information as to whether this applies to you.
  • The University shall decide if any criminal convictions you may have are incompatible with study at the University and inform you of its decision before you are entitled to enrol on your course or programme of study.
  • You shall promptly inform the University, if after completing your application for admission, or when you are a student of the University, you are convicted of any criminal offence or if there are any circumstances which may affect your suitability for your course of study.
  • Failure to comply with the disclosures required above shall be treated as an act of bad faith and may result in the University terminating your application or your Contract.


In submitting your application form, you are also confirming that you have sought the consent of the referees included in your application form to use them as referees, and that the University may contact them to obtain references about you.
