Your Student Advice team

Student Advice consists of Student Services officers and advisers who are here to offer you support with all aspects of university life.

If you have a general query or even need help accessing your course information, our officers can do just that. No question is too big or small, and they can help you book appointments with our specialist teams too.

Need a little more advice? Our Student Services advisers are trained and knowledgeable colleagues who can support you to work through any issues you might be experiencing. They can also help with referring to specialist teams and signposting to external, local support as well.

Student Advice can also help in the practical elements of university. The team will produce your first campus card and assist you in accessing any replacements throughout your time at Leeds Beckett. They can also provide confirmation of enrolment and bank letters for current students, as well as transcripts for our graduates.

We want to ensure you have the best possible student experience, but sometimes things can get in the way of that. If anything is standing in your way, please reach out and the team will do everything they can to get you back on track.
