With a prestigious reputation, Leeds Beckett boasts five star QS ratings for employability, facilities, inclusiveness and internationalisation; is the only university in the UK to hold the Customer Service Excellence standard for our whole institution, underlining our commitment to customer satisfaction.
The University hosts a diverse mix of students across two campuses, with more than 24,000 students from 143 different countries attending the institution. Notable alumni including Piers Aggett and Kesi of Brit award winning Rudimental, Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Baumann and Fabian Wagner, Director of Photography on Game of Thrones and Sherlock! It takes pride in creating a welcoming environment for those from overseas, with a week of activities scheduled just for international students when they arrive.
