Support and resources

There are a lot of resources across the University designed to support our students and help them to make the most of their time here at Leeds. From academic support to childcare on-campus, find out what’s available.

Skills and academic development support

  • All teaching staff have office hours every week where you can drop in to discuss what’s been covered in lectures or seminars, as well as any upcoming assessments or further reading.
  • You’ll be given a personal tutor who will support you, both academically and personally, helping you to reflect on your development and the skills you’ve gained.
  • If there’s a specific skill you’d like to develop or practise then skills@library can help. Skills@Library supports students to develop academic skills with in-person and online resources.
  • The Language Zone runs workshops and advice appointments that can help you to develop your confidence in using academic language.

General wellbeing

Life after Leeds

  • Leeds for Life supports your personal and academic development, so you have the skills and attributes to help you succeed academically and impress potential employers.
  • The Careers Service could help you to find work experience, advice for job applications and interviews, access to events and access to exclusive job opportunities. You will be able to access support from the beginning of your time at Leeds through to after you have graduated.

Practical considerations

  • Bright beginnings nursery is an award-winning childcare centre providing high quality childcare to students and staff at the University. They accommodate up to 168 children from the age of 3 months until the term before their fifth birthday. Bright beginnings has been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ grade in all aspects by Ofsted.
  • If you have a disability, mental health or learning difficulty, you'll be offered a range of support. Disability services are a central team with specialist staff who work with disabled students and their academic departments to recommend available support and adjustments.
  • Joblink is Leeds University Union’s student job shop. Joblink can help you in finding part-time and flexible work, internships, projects and holiday jobs to help you earn as you learn.
