Application forms for 2020/2021 entry will become available in August 2020. After receipt of your application, we will write to you to confirm whether or not you have a place on the course and ask you to arrange payment of the course fees.
As a student on one of our part-time language courses you will have access to our award-winning library which is open 24/7 365 days a year.
The University is reviewing all of its modern language programmes and will do all that it can to minimise any changes to your studies. However, it is possible this review may result in substantial changes to the modern language programmes, for example fee increases or the discontinuance of programmes in academic years beyond those outlined above.
Due to Covid-19 and social distancing restrictions, all courses will be delivered online in the academic year 2020/2021.
The fee for the academic year 2020/2021 is £425. If courses are run in future academic years, fees will be reviewed and may be increased. The accredited language programmes are closed to new entrants. The second year of the accredited programmes is taught for the final time in 2020/2021 only at a fee of £425. Continuing students wishing to enrol on the second year of these programmes will be contacted in August with further details of the delivery of these courses.
If the University has to cancel a course (which can happen if there are insufficient students or through staff shortage), you will if possible be offered an alternative course or given a refund.
If you withdraw from a course after the second week of scheduled teaching, no refund will be given. If you withdraw during or before the second week of teaching, you will be given a full refund.
If you wish to withdraw from the course you must inform the course administrators in writing (email is preferred) or use the cancellation form. Withdrawals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, otherwise you will continue to be enrolled as a student, remain on the mailing list for the duration of the course, and are liable for the full course fee.
In accordance with Leeds Beckett University’s Student Regulations (Fee Schedule & Liability Policy 2020/21 – Section 4), there will be no refund for students who withdraw beyond the second week of teaching.
A new application form is required for each new academic year.
