Wellbeing for International Students

Being a student from outside the UK can be exciting but daunting at times. We are here to help you settle into your new life and make the most of it by putting on events, talks and activities throughout the year. We also encourage you to regularly talk through any worries you may have with our dedicated adviser.

How we can help

From a welcome reception in Freshers' Week to an orientation tour of Leeds and visits to Yorkshire attractions, the conservatoire arranges activities and events to help you meet fellow international students, local community groups and how to get to know your way around Leeds and feel at home. 

Our student services team can provide advice and information on areas such as accommodation, finance, careers, local knowledge and cultural matters. We are also here to support you through any other difficulties or queries you may have and to ensure you are getting the most out of your experience here at Leeds College of Music. 

Our dedicated International Wellbeing Adviser organises a variety of social and cultural events especially for the benefit of our international students.

How do I pay my tuition fees?

For more information see International Tuition Fees.

Can I access any help with living costs?

You will need to ensure that you can support yourself entirely for the duration of your time in the UK, as international students have no recourse to public funds. Successful applicants will receive comprehensive information about costs before their arrival in the UK.
