Settling into student life

Throughout registration and induction week, Student Services staff will be in the bar area getting to know new students, and welcoming returning students.  Look out for our stall where you can pick up lots of useful information, or just come to say ‘hello’.  Bring your questions, and we’ll do our best to answer them!

Student Services is based in room 401, and this is the place to visit if you have questions about student finance, bursaries, a disability or medical condition, health and wellbeing, student accommodation, or if you need to speak to someone confidentially about any issues you are having.

Registering with a doctor

One of the first things on your ‘to do’ list is to register with a doctor in Leeds. This is very easy to do; Leeds Student Medical Practice staff will be in the bar area throughout the days when new HE students enrol. This is a student-focused practice about a 15 minute walk from the conservatoire.

Support at Leeds College of Music

Do you have a learning difficulty, autism, mental health condition, physical or other impairment?

If so, we encourage you to make contact with the conservatoire’s disability advisers before September Registration so that we can make sure you receive the right support, adjustments, advice and guidance to help you succeed with your studies.

Contact Laura or Scott on 0113 222 3421 or email


Moving away to study is exciting, but it can be overwhelming for some students. If you’re finding things a bit difficult in the first few weeks, talking it over with someone at the conservatoire will certainly help. The health and wellbeing team in Student Services Team are available Monday to Friday; pop into room 401 and have a chat. Be assured that feeling a bit wobbly is quite normal at the start of term!

Meningitis vaccination

In September you will be mixing closely with lots of new people, some of whom may unknowingly carry the meningococcal bacteria. This makes you more at risk of getting meningitis. You should see your GP to get the meningitis ACWY vaccine over the summer period before Registration in September.
