Welcome to Leeds Beckett University
To help prepare you for your first year of study and ensure you understand the academic, social and online aspects of the environment at Leeds Beckett the Graduate School hold an induction for all postgraduate research students. The day will introduce you to University and the key processes involved in studying for a research degree. It will also cover the various services, support and training available to you throughout your time with us. The Induction is then followed by the first in a series of Development Days.
The next Induction will take place on Thursday 1st October followed by the Development Day on Friday 2nd October 2020. Due to the current circumstances relating to COVID-19 both of these will now be delivered online. More information about this will be sent to offer holders in due course and this page will be updated accordingly.
