Enhancing student belonging at University of Leeds

Leeds Case StudyPebblePad@2x (1)

Established in 1904, the University of Leeds is one of the largest universities in the UK and part of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities. Recognised as one of the most international universities, Leeds puts ‘belonging’ at the centre of its strategy to provide a compassionate campus and curriculum to ensure students feel seen, respected and valued.

The ambition

Discover how the University of Leeds uses PebblePad to elevate pre-arrival engagement, offering interactive, personalised workbooks that nurture students’ sense of belonging and readiness for academic life at Leeds.

The challenge

Understanding the pivotal role of belonging in students’ university experience, the University of Leeds identified a need to engage prospective students before their official arrival and registration.

Recognising the limitations of traditional communication methods such as email and static PDFs, the university sought a customisable and interactive tool to foster a sense of belonging prior to students’ arrival.

The solution

Using PebblePad, the university bolstered its pre-arrival process by delivering tailored resources online to incoming students. As well as a welcome checklist for all students, the platform allows Schools to tailor transition workbooks to the needs of each course and cohort.
