I find the university best for education as I am studying biomed and the professors are very friendly and guide you in right direction when you approach them. They are kind, polite and make the surrounding more suitable for students without any discrimination. I am loving it!!

Love this uni, changed from a different one after first year and now wish I started here originally. Best campus, amazing facilities and supportive staff. Anyone who is considering Beckett, you won't regret it!
Good uni, good location, friendly stff
Brilliant! Happy I chose beckett
Everything you need, would recommend
Absolutely brill, loved my first year
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
Fab uni, society events are great, the uni always has loads of stuff going on.
Leeds beckett is a friendly and welcoming environment which really makes students feel involved and part of the university.
For student from outside the UK, don't be stupid and lose your time and many
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.
Loved my time at Leeds Beckett. Was really easy to meet new people and make friends.
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.
The wifi got upgraded half way through my degree so we were the lucky year that had to set everything up all over again and it never got done properly.
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.
best university and campus and accommodation
Great city but any extra clubs cost alot of money
Nothing wrong with the uni campus exactly what I was expecting and the chicken shack is amazing!!
Students union a bit small and boring compared to other unions I've visited, food is cheap though! Wifi is crap and hard to get onto
Couldn't rate Leeds Beckett more!! I love it!
There needs to be better facilities for the arts subjects (dance and performance) better studios
I love my uni and would recommend it to anyone
Great uni, clean, in the centre of the city, or in a more sub-urban part of Leeds dependent upon your course...either way the campuses are placed perfectly for a modern student, with excellent transport links between them
Would recommend this uni to anyone
Pretty basic and what was expected. Leeds Beckett certainly seems overshadowed by the more prestigious University of Leeds, however.
Wifi is a little difficult to set up.
I am on Headingley Campus and it is gorgeous. Lecture theatres are nice. Boasts top of the range facilities with a good (and cheap) SU bar.
One of the best Universities in the U.K
Teachers could provide more support when finding placement, maybe that's just my course
fantastic uni, brilliant facilities and lovely people!
The university is very good! They really take care of the students and offer all the structure to a good learning
The teaching standard just isn't worth the money
Great for creative courses, present loads of practical opportunities to students of all schools. Fantastic music facilities, particularly the music studios and rehearsal space.
Worst yin ever, so unorganised. Hardly any societies or opportunities
None of the staff on my particular course were very helpful or supportive.
Did not enjoy my university experience. Poorly structured course with poor assessment techniques with no real direction. Sense that we were the first year to have the new assessment methods and they simply don't work.
Leeds Beckett was my first choice, and it was that for a reason! Amazing University.
Societies are amazing and varied.
Leeds Beckett University
Modern facilities, enthusiastic and experienced teachers, and a dedication to students.
The negative connotations of what used to be 'the met' still linger with staff, pupils, and those outside of the university.
Amazing staff for Sports health courses.
Buses can be expensive and need to get the bus twice a week which adds up.
