When you have your results you should first check UCAS Track to see if you've been accepted onto your course.

Congratulations, you will have a confirmed place at Leeds if:

  • you were holding an offer from us as your first choice and have achieved the required grades 
  • you were holding an offer from us as your insurance choice and have achieved the required grades, and have not been accepted by your first choice 
  • you were holding an offer from us and narrowly missed the required grades, but we have reviewed your application and would still like to offer you a place 

What's next 

If you’re joining us this September, you’ll receive all the information you need to help plan what to do next by email from 17 August. This will include a digital copy of our Welcome Guide.

If you’re living in the UK, you will also receive a copy of our Welcome Guide by post. 

If you have deferred your place and are planning to study with us next year we will be in touch the August before you arrive in Leeds.  

In your Welcome Guide you will find details on: 

  • Registration – how and when to register and what documents you’ll need to do this 
  • Welcome and induction activities  
  • Accommodation - preparing to move into your new home 
  • Arriving in Leeds and what to bring with you  

If you’re an international student planning to come to Leeds on a Tier 4 Visa we will contact you with your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). This might not be immediate but you’ll have it in time for you to study.  

We offer additional support to refugee and/or asylum seeking students. Contact theplusprogramme@leeds.ac.uk to find out how we can assist you.  


Confirmation of which residence you have been allocated to depends on when you apply. Find out more information about your accommodation next steps.  

If you’re planning to live at home and commute to the University make sure you join the Leeds University Union Commuters Society.  

Things you can do now

Before you receive your welcome information there are things which you can do now to help you prepare for your arrival.  

Payment of tuition fees 

If you’re from the UK you should apply for government funding, if you are eligible and have not done so already. More information on the GOV.UK student finance webpage

Consider how you will pay your tuition fees if you’re self-funding. Your welcome information will tell you how to pay your fees. Do not bring large sums of cash into the UK; all fee payments are electronic.  

Beware of fraudulent payment requests. If you’re not sure if a communication from the University is genuine then please contact us at UGfees@leeds.ac.uk to check.  

Documents to prepare 

To help with your arrival and registration you will need to bring: 

  • Your passport (or national identity card if you’re from the EEA). This should include your visa/immigration permission if relevant. If you’re from the UK and you do not have a passport you will need to bring a completed copy of our identity verification form.
  • Your original exam certificates if you sat your exams outside the UK. You’re likely to need these to register. Check your offer letter for any conditions and bring your certificates with you if you’re unsure.
