Welcome to Flying Start


Welcome to the University of Leeds and to Flying Start.

Flying Start has been designed to help you understand what studying at university really means.

As you will discover, university is quite different from school or college, but with help from your lecturers and tutors you will quickly adapt and learn how to study effectively and independently in your new environment.

Take your time over the next few weeks to work through the four sections of this site. Each one introduces new concepts and provides practical advice to help you get the most out of your time at Leeds.

Flying Start provides the opportunity for you to improve your academic skills and explore new ways of learning before you arrive at university.

When you’ve finished Flying Start, please give us feedback to help us improve the resource.

Let's go!
