We make it our top priority to support you so that you feel happy and ready to succeed in your studies at Leeds Beckett University. You will live and learn with students from around the world, in a lively city that has it all.
We offer two International Foundation Year subject routes, designed to prepare you to start an undergraduate degree at Leeds Beckett University:
The International Year One prepares you to enter the second year of your undergraduate degree by helping you develop the key subject-specific and English language skills needed for success in a business management degree at the University.
The International Study Centre is a safe and supportive place where you can feel at home and make new friends. We have experienced and friendly teachers who you’ll get to know well. They will monitor your progress closely to keep you on track.
You will study in small classes with other students, which means you can get more individual attention from your tutors, and ask plenty of questions.
If you need extra support, your personal tutor will be able to help you with your academic studies, and answer any other questions you may have.
Courses at the International Study Centre follow the same style of teaching that you’ll find at Leeds Beckett University, so you’ll know exactly what to expect when you start your degree. Read more about the top reasons why our students choose Leeds Beckett University.
Whether you study the International Foundation Year, or the International Year One, you’ll study modules that are relevant to the degree you plan to study at university, so can progress to Leeds Beckett inspired and full of new ideas.
You’ll also have full access to all of the fantastic facilities at Leeds Beckett, so you will feel a part of university life from day one.
The Leeds International Study Centre is located at the world-famous Global East Stand, Emerald Headingley Stadium, just a short walk from Leeds Beckett’s vibrant Headingley Campus.
Our location benefits from great transport links, with a regular bus service to and from Leeds city centre, and from Headingley Campus to the Emerald Headingley Stadium during term time.
Facilities include cutting-edge learning and social spaces with modern technology and a café where you can relax or study.
