Get the support you need

Studying at university can be different from how you’ve studied before. But we’ve got support to help succeed each step of the way. 

Study support before you arrive

Through the Access to Leeds scheme you’ll take part in the Access to Leeds module. It will help you prepare for university study. 

The module involves a series of study skills workshops, as well as a short assignment on your chosen subject area. You’re given guidance from a University tutor who will provide feedback on your work.

Study support while you’re here

Helping you to succeed in your studies doesn’t stop there. We’re here for you throughout your studies.  Our Plus Programme is a support network for students from underrepresented backgrounds to:

  • Help you prepare for and settle into university life
  • Provide support so you can succeed in your studies
  • Offer additional careers support
  • Provide funding for personal and professional development opportunities.

The University was there for me, even before I started my course, which really helped to settle my nerves and understand more about studying for a degree. The Plus Programme was great because you get offered exclusive opportunities handpicked for you throughout your course.
