Leeds is such a vibrant and exciting city with some of the best designer and high street shops as well as an incredible night life!

In the last 3 or 4 years, the transformation that Leeds has gone through is incredible. From the shopping to the restaurants and everything in between, Leeds is one of the best cities in the UK!

Busy town with lots of variety for restaurants and venues. Loads of character and culture. Many new and renevated shopping centres such as the Victoria Gate. Always things to do and something on. All the big chains are available as well as a great selection of independent shops. The same goes for places to eat. Not always the cheapest night out but there are lots of good options when on a budget. There will always be an option whatever your style of music or idea of a good time is.

Leeds is a fantastic city with something on offer for anything you're looking for. Great live music venues with a huge variety like brudenell, Belgrave, headrow house, o2 and more. Wide range of place to eat you can find anything you want with a great atmosphere so easily. A really big party scene and can always find fun in bars if you don't want to stay raving til 5am. They have heaps of activities and are super close to some fantastic nature in the dales.

Leeds is a small city/town with many students. You can do many things from dining, clubbing and much more. The transport is pretty cheap and the busses are up till 11:30pm If you're in the city centre walking would be the most ideal mean of getting to places. Enjoy your time at Leeds

Amazing city with everything you could possibly want. Bars, restaurants, clubs, museums, theatres and more. A stones throw away from the beautiful yorkishire dales where you can escape into nature

The city is full of life, lots of places to eat, go out, to shop. Everything is very easy to reach, very safe.

The city is very nice with a fantastic transport infrastructure, there are many places to go on nights out and while the food is often overly expensive, there are lots of nice restaurants/takeaways. The quality and value for money in terms of food isn't as good as neighbouring slightly smaller cities like Bradford, but there's still lots of options with generally good standards. As for shopping, it's fantastic. Within the town centre there is a multitude of places to shop, including massive new shopping centres such as Trinity as well as smaller centres like the core and merrion. There's lots of things to do outside of food and shopping, in terms of minigolf or sports like football and cricket with Elland Road and Headingley Stadium nearby. I would recommend Leeds.

Leeds is amazing not only for shopping but food and drink with a large variety, costs range but overall offers an affordable day and night out

Good night life, clubs for everyone's taste. Large shopping area, most shops are in the trinity shopping center. There is also a large food court in trinity with so many interesting options. Over all leeds is quite a cheep place to live however, accommodation and student housing is on the pricier side. Leeds is very student aware and most bars and restaurants offer a student discount. Freshers events are widely on offer, through out the day and evening, giving you opportunity to meet new people and learn about the city. There are also many options for activities that don't involve drinking, including, bowling, mini golf, garlleries and many one off events.

As a city, Leeds is a go to place for the overall experience. A variety of nightlife, accessible transportation, activities and shopping malls including high street shops are within the city centre. Not only that, there are two universities located just outside the city centre so it's 'perfect' for students.

Great night outs! Variety of bars and clubs which suit everybodys wants/needs. Lovely range of restaurants, I advise Ambiente Tapas. Perfect city for students.

My city is great because there is a high percentage of students amongst the residents leading to a never dull atmosphere. There are infinite businesses that take care of our needs such as never ending the count of bars, clubs, restaurants even luxury casinos which help a poor student cover his costs for a living. Also is relatively cheap in relation to what you get, ovbiously you have to know the good places, but on average is good deals for the poor student who struggles to mantain his account balance alive.

Leeds is a great place for food, shopping and things to do. There is something for everyone with the markets, shopping centres like Trinity and Victoria, independent cafes or big chain restaurants.

Great city for students, everything is within walking distance with a varied price range in all categories.

Bars and clubs within Leeds are really good, sometimes busy. But there is a wide variety, something for everyone. The trinity centre has clothing shops, technology and gadget shops, and even a cinema, meaning there is something for everybody. With food restaurants dotted all over Leeds, making it almost impossible to not find something you'd enjoy. The transport in and around Leeds can be a slight problem, do to the city always been relatively busy. I would always allow plenty of time to travel. There is always good connection links, train, bus and even a nearby airport. Overall Leeds is an upcoming, exciting city.

Leeds is an amazing city! Full of food, fun and friends, it's so easy to get around, meet people and try new things. The city is a good balance between busy and quiet, with an amazing night life and lovely bars to all types of cuisines with varying price ranges and offers something for everyone. As a student, it's perfect with Good value Uber's available in an instant to good public transport links, you can always be sure to find and get to your destination. One thing I love about Leeds is how diverse and colourful it is! Even though there are loads of different academic institutions they can find a way to collaborate or be inclusive and create a safe space for everyone, bring together and introduce new interests and opportunities. Overall, Leeds is a perfect place for any student and you're bound to have an amazing time no matter what you do!

Leeds is an amazing city full of character, loads to do, great night life and even better shopping. It's a city that has something for everyone. In terms of the fashion scene, from thrifting to designer fashion leeds has shopping for everyone. Leeds nightlife also has an array of clubs varying in every genre of music, there truly is something for everyone. I studied at the Art Univeristy, which is full of diversity and outstanding university courses. I'm sure this is the same throughout the other education institutions. Everyone in leeds is so friendly and I honestly couldn't pick a better city to have gone to uni at.

Leeds has to be the best night out. Plenty of varieties of bars, clubs and food places. Lots of shopping centres to visit, trinity, St. John's centre..

Leeds is one of the most fun filled cities, especially for students. There is loads of things to do from nights out to more relaxed activities (bowling, cinema, etc). The variety of different clubs and bars is outstanding, with the quality of food all over the city on a par. The large shopping centre, trinity, offers almost every popular clothing shop even some technology and gadget stores. The only thing that I wouldn't rely on is transport, with the centre and surrounds being so busy it can be difficult for transport, specially buses, to stay on time. I would always allow longer than anticipated for travelling in and around Leeds.
