Leeds University Business School

Welcome to the Leeds University Business School (LUBS). On this page you’ll find everything you need to know about starting or returning to your studies.

Make sure you read the ‘all students’ information 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 end of the page 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’ll 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.

Find out more about course representatives and how to apply for the role.

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

Yes – all societies associated with the Business School are listed on the Business School Clubs and Societies page.

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 catalogue 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.

What does my induction timetable look like?

We’ll send you a link to your induction timetable in advance. You can find all timetables on the Business School Welcome and Induction pages.

Will I be required to attend face-to-face sessions?

We want you to have the best best possible experience of your education at Leeds, and teaching will be delivered face to face. For courses starting in September 2023, you’ll be expected to attend learning activities in person on campus, and you’ll need to be in Leeds for these. Learning will be supported by a range of digital technologies.

How will I find out more about my programme?

You’ll have an introduction to your programme session with your programme director during Welcome and Induction. You can find out when this is on the Business School Welcome and Induction pages.

What welcome activities do you have planned to welcome me to Leeds University Business School?

Your welcome activities will be listed on your induction timetable which can be found on the Business School Welcome and Induction pages. There’ll also be lots of useful online resources for you to access throughout the induction period and beyond.

Are there any peer mentoring schemes operating in my school?

We run the Peer Assisted Study Scheme (PASS) at the Business School. This is facilitated by higher level students and aims to provide new first year students with a fun, friendly, focused environment where you 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 my programme be delivered this year?
