  • Experience and adapt to academic study in the UK ahead of your degree 
  • Improve your academic English language skills (including reading, writing, listening and speaking) at postgraduate level 
  • Become familiar with the University facilities such as libraries, study spaces and learning platforms 
  • Get to know Leeds and campus life before your degree begins 
  • Meet other students and build a community of peers
