Congratulations – you’re coming to Leeds!

Welcome guide

Practical information and advice to help you prepare for joining us at Leeds.

What’s next? 

If you’re joining us this September, you’ll receive all the information you need to help to plan what to do next by email from late August. 

If you have deferred your place and are planning to study with us next year, we’ll be in touch with you the August before you start your studies.  

We’ll give you information about:  

  • Registration – how and when to register and what documents you’ll need to do this 
  • Welcome and induction activities 
  • Accommodation 

If you’re an international student planning to come to Leeds on a Student visa, we will contact you with your CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies), so you don’t need to take any action to request this. This might not be immediate but you’ll have it in time for your studies.  


Confirmation of which residence you have been allocated to depends on when you apply. Find out more on our accommodation website.  

If you’re planning to 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 you can do now to help you prepare. 

Tuition fees 

If you’re from the UK and wish to receive government funding you should apply for this now, if you are eligible and have not done so already. More information is 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 tuition fees. Do not bring large sums of cash into the UK if you’re coming from overseas; 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 to check.  

Documents to prepare  

To help with your arrival and registration, ensure you have easy access to 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’ll need to bring a completed copy of our identity verification form.

Bring your original exam certificates if you sat your exams outside the UK or before this year. You may need these to register.
