Final year project
+++ Private study and
research
Teaching and learning
• Blended education: a mix of short pre-recorded screencasts followed by in-
person and hands on practical classes
• Flexible learning: lectures are recorded so that you can go back and watch them
in your own time
• Active learning activities: activities that involved you to independently direct
your learning and take initiatives to solve a problem developing key skills such as
communication, team-work and problem solving:
✓ Researching a particular disease in a group and giving a presentation
✓ Presenting a scientific paper to your fellow students
✓ Analysing data from an experiment and writing up a short report
Hybrid
Learning
Hybrid learning describes a mix betweenonline and in-
personlearning.
Especiallyover the COVID-19pandemic,online learning has
become amore prominent tool used by universities.
Online learning can consistof both pre-recorded lectures
that you are required to watch in your own time and online
lectures or seminars at a set time. In this case students are
expected to attend and can interact with the lecturer and
fellow students
Autonomy
over your
learning
➢ Unlike schools and college, you won't be led by
the hand and help every step of the way!
➢ Lecturers and personal tutors are there to help
but you are the one that must initiate the
interaction if you want help
How do I become autonomous in my learning?
➢ I need to find an effective note taking technique
during lectures either using paper or a computer
➢ For exams and assignments, I need to research
the topic and add to the notes I already have from
the lecture
➢ I need to practice past examination papers to
revise
➢ I need to develop a good work routine with time
for my academic work and social life
➢ I need to develop healthy habits and try my best
to attend every lecture as it is easy to get into the
habit of missing lectures
University is what YOU make of it!
Adapting to
everyday life
If you are moving away
from home and living at
university, you’ll have to
be much more
independent and
organized with day-to-day
activities, e.g., cooking,
laundry, washing etc.
Getting involved

• Outdoor sports with sport facilities (Weetwood sports park, Boddington Playing
fields, Yorkshire Dales, boat house near Thwaite Mills Stourton)
• 'Get out and get active' programme
• Leeds University Union clubs
• The Edge
• Volunteering opportunities
Financial support from the University of Leeds:
1. Sports scholarship program
2. Coaching scholarships

5. Scholarships on academic achievement
Financial support from outside the University

3. NHS funding
4. Funding for disabled students (DSA)
5. Funding for students with dependents
Financial support

postgraduate taught students who come from backgrounds that
are less represented at university

Student support and wellbeing

ends during term time!

and would like some extra support
• Assigned personal tutor for your time at university
• Free counselling, well-being and mental health support
• Support for care-experienced students
• Careers and employability support
• Multi-faith campus and LUU include faith related student societies
What do you wish you had known
before coming to university?
You don't have to know what
you want to do in the future
It's ok not to make
friends immediately.
You get as much out of
your coursework as you put in.
It's not all play, you have to sacrifice
social things.
How to have a good work-life
balance
How to budgetefficiently
A lot more content is covered
than at A levels.
How much success depends
on me.
It is important to attend lectures
on campus.

learn

learning

moving to university)
• There are many societies and clubs for you to meet people
• Financial support, student support and wellbeing is there to help you at
university
• University is a great experience but do not think it will be all fun and games
you will have to work!
