after you apply

Once received, your application will be considered. If we are able to make you an offer, there are four possible outcomes.


If you have already met all the entry requirements, then we can make you an unconditional offer. This means you definitely have a place on your chosen course.

Conditional offers

If you have not met all the entry requirements yet or might be waiting to take exams or receive results, we may make you a conditional offer. This offer means we will accept you on our course, as long as you achieve the appropriate qualifications.

invitation to interview

As part of the application process some of our courses have an interview. This is an opportunity to showcase your enthusiasm and skills for the course, as well as share any relevant experience you have.

offer on another course

If we are unable to make you an offer on the course you have applied for we may make you an offer on an alternative course that, based on your application, we feel might be of interest to you and something you would enjoy and excel at.

next steps...


1. Making your choice

When you have received all your offers from the universities you have applied to, you will be asked to make a Firm (first) and Insurance (second) choice. Visit our Applicants pages to see what's in store on your journey to university and how we can help you make an informed decision.

2. Online Applicant Days

If you have applied for a course at Leeds Beckett, we will invite you to one of our Online Applicant Days. These events are subject specific and designed to provide you with more detailed information about your course, as well as the chance to meet the staff who will be teaching you and current students. You'll get a real feel for what it’s like to be a student with us, see where you will be studying, and discover where you could be living.

3. Course interviews

Some of our courses invite applicants to interviews, instead of Applicant Days. If your course requires an interview, our Admissions team will contact you with all the details. Depending on the course you applied for this could be an interview or audition, or submission of a portfolio.

4. Accommodation

Once you've accepted a place with us, you will need to think about where to live.

If you apply for university accommodation before 30 June (or before 31 July if you are an international student) and make us your Firm choice, you are guaranteed a place in one of our 3,500+ rooms.

You might prefer to live in private rented accommodation rather than halls of residence. If so, you should start looking for places to live as soon as you’ve accepted your place. You can visit Unipol Student Homes for help with this.

Lots of our students prefer to stay at home while studying with us and if that's something you're thinking about, check out our information on staying at home while studying to help you decide.

5. Welcome and registration

At Leeds Beckett, we give you a very warm welcome. We want every student to feel comfortable in their new surroundings from the very first day.

In the weeks prior to your arrival, our online Welcome and Registration service will give you all the information you need to help you settle in. You will be given access to this service when you have accepted your place.
