We are delighted you are joining us. Here you can find all the information you'll need to settle in and prepare for a new and exciting chapter of your life. You can find more information about arriving at Leeds in the Arrival section of the For Students website.
You’ll find everything you need to know about starting your studies in the School of Earth and Environment welcome pages.
Although you will be attending sessions as part of an induction week from Monday 20 September – Friday 24 September, we would like to emphasise that the process of welcoming you to the university and to our school, and getting you off to the best possible start as a Leeds student, is something we take seriously and we do not cram into just one week. Induction begins from the moment your place is confirmed and continues well into the first Semester and indeed the first year, when you will be settling into life as a student in our School and the University.
Your School Induction Timetable 2021 will be e-mailed to you ahead of induction week.
For information about the University of Leeds international student welcome and orientation programme see the For Students website.
For students who are living at home and commuting to campus, the LUU Commuters' Society is a community of like-minded students with an emphasis on wellbeing and inclusivity. They host a variety of events and have organised a commuters' lounge space which is scheduled to open in 2021/22. They will be posting updates on their social media pages (particularly their Facebook Group). For more details, please refer to their LUU page.
The Faculty of Environment is also hosting the Being Unconventional Welcome Sessions, both online and in-person, to welcome mature and part-time undergraduates during Induction Week. Details of the sessions and how to join them will be in your timetable. For any questions, please contact S.Renville@leeds.ac.uk.
The Faculty of Environment is launching a network for new and current mature students, who are defined as undergraduates aged 21 or older and taught postgraduates aged 25 or older on entry to the University. The network will be an opportunity to communicate with other mature students within your school, across the faculty and in other year groups, as well as an opportunity to attend sessions organised specifically for members of the network.
Mature students in the faculty will be contacted via email in September with details of how to join the network, or you can submit your details via this link to register your interest.
The Plus Programme is an extra support scheme available to students who have entered the University through specific access routes or meet certain criteria. For more information, please visit the Plus Programme website.
