This webpage contains specific information for students studying Leeds Metropolitan courses through FE College Partnerships.
This includes information including applying for a Campus Card, using the library and accessing services on campus such as the Job Shop and Students’ Union. You can also find information about progressing to Leeds Metropolitan to top-up your foundation degree.
If you wish to continue your studies after a foundation degree, did you know you can apply for a top up award here at Leeds Met?
A top up means you study for another year (full-time) or longer (part-time) and 'top up' your foundation degree to a full BA/BSc Honours degree.
The FE College Partnerships office can support you with information, advice and guidance on the progression from a foundation degree to an Honours degree here at Leeds Metropolitan.
Progression to a top up is not guaranteed
Details of the limitations of progression are provided within the University Academic Principles and Regulations at B10.9.1.
There are four Faculties at Leeds Metropolitan which offer appropriate top up awards for you to study. You can search for top up awards via our online prospectus.
For further information, advice and guidance please email: FEcollegepartnerships@leedsmet.ac.uk

Whilst you are studying a Leeds Metropolitan University validated course at one of our FE College Partners you can request membership of The Library at Leeds Metropolitan University by applying for a Campus Card. When you have your card you may use the two campus libraries at Headingley and City Campus.
To apply for a Campus Card, please complete this form.Campus_card_app_form.pdf Please remember to have it signed by your tutor, and return it to the address on the form with the requested photo. Your card will be sent directly to your home address.
What will I be able to borrow?
Upon receipt of your Campus card, ask for your Library PIN at the Help and Information Point in The Library. With your card and PIN you can borrow up to 5 books for 2 weeks. You can log in to the Library Catalogue and use the Self Service function to extend this loan period, provided that no one has "placed a hold" on that book. You can return the items you have borrowed to The Library at either campus, City or Headingley. Your borrowing entitlement does not include short loan items, videos or journals.
If you have any outstanding fines on your card, you will not be able to renew any items you have on loan, or borrow any more items until the fine has been paid. Fines on overdue items are charged at 20p per item per day overdue.
Access to IT
Whilst in the library, you can request a temporary one-day login to use the PCs. You can also access some of the electronic resources of The Library at Leeds Metropolitan university. Please ask at the Help and Information Point for further details.
