My daughter is in her 1st year at Leeds Becket University staying at Marsden house, which is managed by IQ. She had been there’s month and we have brought her home for her own safety. The corridor door has been kicked in 4 times the kitchen ransacked and parcel stollen. She has been threatened by youths who seem to be in control of the place. Reporting this as it happens is useless, “we haven’t got enough staff for the incidents taking place”. We have reported it several times to the IQ management team and the police via 101, both don’t seem interested. Everybody there is complaining; also, reading many previous years student comments this has been happening for years. We are moving her and claiming a refund. Don’t place your son or daughter in this hell hole.

Good uni, lecturers are always so helpful and most are friendly. They have a wide range of societies but I wish they had more that appealed to me like more dance societies with LUU have. Facilities such as libraries are great and well organised too. WiFi is fast and good for when you need it on campus

One of my biggest life regrets was going to Leeds Met (as it was known at the time). I studied there between 2010-13 (but looking at the more recent reviews some of the problems I had with the teaching quality are still there). The open day and online videos at the time painted a very different picture to what the reality was. The Headingley Campus is very pleasant and on paper looked nicer than Manchester Met (my other choice), but looks can be very deceitful. I had heard bad things about offering half price tuition fees to get bums on seats but I had thought they had moved past this when I started there in 2010. The teaching quality given by my faculty was incredibly poor. Staff were rude, cold, monotone and set in their ways. We were not treated fairly and were made to feel like a problem whenever we raised concerns. The experience was so bad that it showed an ugly side to my peers. The university just wants your money and they give little back. I would urge you not to go here.

I have completed an MSc in Public Health - Health promotion and I would advise people to not undertake this course. The course is poorly managed as I was misadvised on how to complete the masters and as a result I failed. I wasted a lot of time, effort and money on a course that did little for job prospects anyway.

I have had a great time with the uni. I'm studying BSc Hospitality Business Management of which modules capture a variety of aspects such as Marketing, Finance, Operation, Human Resources, etc. Especially in the 2nd year, we had an opportunity to organize a big event for the uni as one of the modules. I love the libraries on both campuses which open 24/7. After class, there are so many activities to join such as societies, workshops or events so that I never feel bored. Last but not least, I really appreciate for the uni support team in terms of academic, career, wellbeing and any queries that I asked.

Great uni with lots of courses available for everyone. Some parts of the building are quite outdated and need an upgrade or deep clean! food is quite expensive but probably not different to other unis. I am very impressed by the athletics team at headingley as a regular member. The sports facilities could also do with updating.

This university doesn't adequately deal with complaints. I reported my housemate for violence and threats. It took almost a year for the guy dealing with it to tell. Me the outcome of the process. They made her write 3 lines of an 'apology' which wasn't actually an apology, but her blaming me. They seriously believed that was sufficient. We also had a lecturer turn up an hour late for an exam, so we had to start an hour later. Most of my course complained and nothing was done about it. I can count 4 decent lecturers, the rest cancelled lectures last minute or simply didn't turn up. Hardly any guidence on coursework. You have to pay for graduation tickets. Don't waste your money by attending Leeds beckett.

Terrible for students with disabilities and mental health. I left Beckett after a meeting with my personal tutor at the very end of the second semester when she told me that there was an “unofficial policy that anyone on high doses of antidepressants should leave or take some time out” I was diagnosed in the first semester had been doing really well and was on track for a 2:1 she told me with my medication I would be unlikely to get a 2:2. I took the exams (even though the disability worker forgot to request extra time or adjusted papers) and I got a 2:1 overall. I left and restarted at a smaller uni near by and in my first year got a 1:1 (first) in my second now and on track to get a 2:1/1:1 again and have started looking at PHD and masters. The tutors made me feel inferior and unwanted due to my health problems and mental health problems. I have been progressing and improving.

Worst place to get a degree. I do not recommend no-one to go there. The staff are rude, they act like your enemy. Special in the faculty of business. They turned my life into a nightmare. I started my degree in Business Management in 2014 and I'm still trying to finish it in 2019 because of the lack of helping from the faculty of business and the bad staff from this University. Please, do not go there!

Overall Leeds Beckett is a fanstastic university with quality facilities, especially for those studying a sports degree. There are many opportunites to join various societies and sport teams and lots of support available. Only issue is the SU at Headingley campus is poor compared to most others I have experienced.

Not a great experience with teaching and support. No external marking on the arts/architecture courses with very bias and unprofessional tutors - tutors that have the attitude as if they don’t want to be there teaching. Some courses are probably run better and work that is correctly marked; however I definitely wouldn’t advise anyone to come here as it’s a waste of money, messy rooms and little access to facilities in which you have to use. A huge disappointment.

All the material you use is beneficial and good quality. First year students have free acess to the gym in city centre or headingley so get that sorted because its FREE

This is the worst education experience I have ever had - DO NOT GO HERE! The teachers do not care at all, rude and dismissive set of people who would obviously rather be elsewhere. The facilities are dirty and rubbish. The lack of support from both staff and in terms of post-graduate activity makes it pointless to even go. Put it this way - I was getting around 50% on assignments and exams in my 1st and second year. Third year, I did not go to a SINGLE lesson or lecture and I average around 75%!! Avoid at all costs. The WORST place ever.

I can only offer the university praise. I have been studying part-time on an MSC programme and the support was excellent. The teaching staff really do go the extra mile. The buildings are in excellent condition with thousands of up-to-date computers everywhere. This is my 3rd university course i have completed and i wish i had come to Leeds Beckett sooner. Can't recommend enough.

I think Leeds Beckett gets a bad rep for being a "poly". I agree there are better universities to go to, but if you're looking for a more vocational course then Beckett ticks the boxes. I loved my accommodation, it was friendly and fun. It was the most modern but its student halls, I wasn't expecting the Ritz. I've seen far worse at other universities ranked much higher. The SU is a bit dated but they hold pretty good nights out, especially during freshers. Support in the student hub was good. the only problem was booking online could be a bit of a pain... Although people say its not got a very good "campus feel" I disagree. The Headingley campus is really nice, especially the Acre in summer. The city campus is exactly that. People complain that its too spread out but you can get from each building in about 2 minutes. Its pretty much in the middle of town as well... Overall I really enjoyed my time at this uni and wouldn't change it. I got a really nice uni experience.

Hated my experience here. Good facilities but very bad teaching staff - act like they hate their jobs and hate you too. The course (law) was very unstructured and the assessment methods were beyond comprehension. They teach you like you're stupid, because the university seemingly doesn't appeal to the more academic students (I only picked it cos it was close). No campus feel because the buildings are too dotted around and very unfriendly people. Overall horrible time here and am leaving after first year.

Very bad place. One of the sick methods of the teachers is that they put a lot of effort into making everyone in the class hate everyone else. Not to mention the extreme shouting, screaming and hate attacks they impose upson students. No wonder some of them went nuts and cut all the chairs in the library, which incidentally is the only nice place there, it even has a nice library award, that they totally deserve. If you would like your children to be emotionally abused and called all sorts of offensive things, send them to the army instead, that certainly is a lot cheaper! Also, they will give your kids so much paper work to carry around all the time, that they will feel like soldiers, who must read lots of stuff they will never ever need and that is in no way related to their future jobs. The library is full of frustrated students typing corrections for their teachers, over and over again. Many students fail for no reason. In addition, girls vanish. It is a very dangerous place too.

Leeds Beckett University

Modern facilities, enthusiastic and experienced teachers, and a dedication to students.

Cons?
The negative connotations of what used to be 'the met' still linger with staff, pupils, and those outside of the university.
