Good facilities although resources limited students have to buy all own stuff despite paying £9,000 a year. Also had to pay this despite the weeks of disruption for the strikes and limited teaching.

Overall the university is great for the education side. However the support network is very small and difficult to find time with. The city itself is extremely depressing and requires you to have to enjoy clubbing in order to enjoy it as the rest of the city does not have a lot about it. The marking system is very strange as it is between 20-90 which can sometimes be very confusing.

I was at Leeds uni for 4 year, which I really loved. My undergraduate degree was historiy. Although we had barely any teaching hours, I did think that I was well supported, particularly in my dissertation. However, I did a masters in international relations, and have found it very difficult and stressful. Although the quality of teaching is good, the marking, the help provided and the support given is inadequate. I have struggled a lot in this year. Socially, Leeds is amazing and I’ve met some great people. There’s constantly stuff to do, so no complaints there.

It's ok. Just ok. Like, only ok. Ok is the word I'd used. O.K. It amounts to OK. All that is obvious is the fact that it is ok. Ok?

Generally good university if one studies engineering or science. Other departments are somewhat disappointing in being disorganised. Though buildings are beautiful on campus, a couple are displeasing in terms of accessibility. Roger Stevens also seems to be a bit of a fire hazard.

Very nice campus with lovely staff and facilities. Only downside is that in the weekend, the library and shops in the union open later.

Good university facilities however some lecturers lack any sort of ability to teach. They seem to only posses the ability to read from PowerPoint

The university is good, however I feel that the main building where the lectures are are very outdated and the lecturers could be more enthusiastic and teach, rather than just copy up the online notes already available, onto the whiteboard.

The campus itself is great, plenty to do, a great student union and very close to the city centre. The facilities are also good, especially the library, with the only problem being a lack of printing budget. The course I was on (Mathematics) was not good, extremely unorganised and rushed with not much guidance, no help available other than lectures (with only a few members of staff being exceptions and going out of their way to organise meetings with students and revision sessions).

The campus is huge full of tall, grand buildings from decades and even centuries ago, with plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from. Staff and students are really friendly. However, there’s lack of communication between lecturers and new postgraduates, as I had to find out most of the important things through friends or accidentally on the intranet. Lack of organisation regarding new postgraduates. Course assignments are not reasonable.
