Leeds university is great, from the outstanding staff to the amazing facilities, spaces and people on campus. The campus is great, everything you need is close together and a short walking distance from one another. The course is not as I expected it to be, with less focus on what I would have personally liked to have done, but I understand the need for the course to be like this and does get better. The student union is great, many good shops and nightlife events, only downside is the hoodies should be free for students. My experience so far has been great and I look forward to another year in my home away from home.

I knew that Leeds University had a fantastic reputation and I admired its ‘red-brick’ status which influenced my decision to apply here. I also knew of some people from my hometown that seemed to be having a great life in Leeds. Having done some more research I then discovered that the faculty of biological sciences (FBS) department at Leeds University was one of the best in the country and that they offered modules that I felt I would be interested in. Also, having grown up in rural Cumbria I was so ready for a change and to experience city life but I did not want to go somewhere as large and as daunting as London. Therefore, the northern city of Leeds seemed like the perfect fit and when visiting the campus, particularly the union, I felt at home. I love the city centre, it is the perfect size and there is so much to do there including mini-golf, shopping, eating out; the list is endless. I also love that there is loads of student housing for second and third years within short walking distance of the university. All of my friends live in Hyde park and I love that I can get to pretty much every one of my friends’ houses in less than 5 mins. Additionally, the research that my lectures present to us is cutting edge. For example, I learn the newest advances regarding cancer research and how to treat it which is beyond interesting – especially because pretty much everyone is affected by cancer in some way. One interesting aspect is about metastasis, this is basically learning how a cancer is able to spread in the body and colonise new sites to form a secondary tumour.

Great teaching. You feel like a person instead of a number. On campus facilities are great, and the Students Union is fair and democratic.

Great university, so many nice people, campus is close to town and hyde park (student area). Sports facilities aren't great though.

As a student who is studying first year again on a different course, I can appreciate the flexibilty that the university offers students by allowing them to change course to something better suited to them, even after a year. The lecturers are engaging and the system to watch lecture capture and hand in work is very accessible. The student union is fantastic, with a new instalments being put in all the time, such as the new co-op and the wooden huts on the terrace. There are loads of places to socialise with friends which makes it a good place to go after a days work in the library!

My time at Leeds has so far been fantastic - the campus is large and well maintained, the union has great facilities, and I feel I get good contact hours and support with my course. I’ve also had the opportunity to spend a year at university in Australia additional to the three years in Leeds, and the support for this so far has been really good.

The campus is really clean and all the staff are really friendly. The student union facilities are really great! They just opened a new co-op which is a big upgrade from the previous essentials supermarket they use to have.

Couldn't ask for a better uni. Dedicated lecturers to help further learning, a variety of different modules to mix things up (discovery modules), and the facilities on offer are second to none. They're always asking for feedback to help improve our experience at university. Would recommend my university too anyone. Tutors are also helpful as you have to attend regular meetings to make sure you're up to speed and getting on ok with your course. This can be tedious but for those who need extra help and support Leeds Uni offer it in abundance. In addition there are hundreds of societies for you to join to be able to make new friends, enjoy different hobbies and activities, and take part in new experiences and challenges which can help develop your skills even further. They also have a brilliiant student medical practice just for uni students just to make sure that we are getting the necessary treatment to keep us in good health both mentally and physically.

I study geography BA. It is a great course, well organised and the staff are very helpful and supportive. I was also fortunate enough to be offered to study for a year in Melbourne which I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do at other university. Furthermore, the field trips are great including trips to Miami, Buenos Aires and New Zealand!

The campus is great feels very like a American campus, and everything is close by. The student union is great has a lot of facilities such as a essentials shop, loads of places to eat, a information desk and has a job link stall where they can help you get part time employment. I'm on my third and final year and I have loved my time at Leeds, the staff have always been very helpful and I've met my best friends here!
