Faculty of Engineering

Student support

During your time at Leeds you will work with an academic supervisor or supervisory team, providing guidance and support to the research project. You will also be associated directly with one of our world-leading research institutes, which generally becomes your 'home base' and is a fairly small-scale community with whom you will interact on a day-to-day basis. All full-time students are provided with their own desk and computer.

Right from the start of your studies you can access our dedicated library and IT provision. Discover information resources through your Faculty Team Librarian, who can provide one-to-one training and support, as well as our Skills@Library scheme, which offers a wide range of workshops throughout the year. We also provide specialist training in a large number of software packages, including Microsoft Office, and support a wireless network that allows you to connect to the University system when working off campus.

The Faculty of Engineering has over 500 PhD students across its five academic Schools. Our dedicated Graduate School Office supports this community by providing a friendly point of contact for any non-academic queries or problems you may have, from initial application through to final thesis submission. If they don't know the answer, they probably know who does!

The Graduate School Office provides:

- a single point of contact for research students;
- support and advice for administrative processes including registration, funding and thesis submission;
- a standard Code of Practice setting out our responsibilities and our expectations of students;
- an online meeting record system for supervisors and students;
- and access to the Faculty's Staff Common Room.

If you require any further information please contact the Graduate School Office.
