Leeds University Business School

Welcome to the Leeds University Business School. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about starting or returning to your studies.

Make sure you read the ‘all students’ info first – this covers things like tasks you need to complete before the start of term, safety procedures on your course and where to go for more information or support.

Then scroll to the section that applies to you – new student or returning student. We’ve also included some helpful links at the bottom to direct you to anything else you might need.

If you’re a postgraduate researcher, find your faculty welcome and induction information to help you get started.

All students

How will I have my say on my programme and school?

You will have a course representative as well as a school representative who you can provide feedback to at any point during the year.

What is the role of course representatives and how do I volunteer?

Course Representatives provide feedback from students on their course to academic and professional staff members. This is a vital role that helps us provide an excellent student experience and student-led change.

Are there any societies I can join for the school/programme?

Yes - all societies associated with the Business School are listed on the Taught Student Guide here: Business School Societies

Are there any peer mentoring schemes operating in my school?  

We run PASS at the Business School which stands for Peer Assisted Study Scheme. This is facilitated by higher level students and aims to provide new first year students with a fun, friendly, focused environment where they can enhance their learning. This will appear on your timetable as an online session and will occur fortnightly. There is more information on this in our SES information and the relevant section to access is ‘PASS - Peer Assisted Study Scheme’

How will I be able to provide feedback on the delivery of my modules?

Your module leader will provide a module feedback form towards the end of each module and you can contact your course representative to give feedback at any point throughout the year. 

How does assessment work on my programme and what support is provided with academic skills?

You can see a breakdown of the assessment methods of each of your modules on our module and programme catalogue. There is a section on Skills@library in the ‘Your Welcome’ resource as well as some LUBS specific guidance on our pages.

Where can I go for support?
