A student’s honest opinion
“Leeds is definitely a great place to go to uni. One of the first things you realize when arriving as a nervous fresher is the number of students studying here- there’s a real sense of student community and you feel a part of something. It’s really reassuring to be surrounded by like minded people when you’re new to a city.
One the big positives for Leeds is the night life. Whatever you like, you are bound to find it here. Midweek can get a bit crowded with cheap drinks and cheese, but there’s always something a bit better around the corner. Saturday nights host the infamous back to basics night which has a real cult following. There’s also a good collection of super-cool bars/clubs where you can have a vodka Redbull with some mates.
All in all, Leeds is an absolutely brilliant place to be. There’s so much going on- clubs, bars and food to suit all tastes. It is a very trendy and vibrant city, but very friendly too. Just come to Leeds- honestly, you’ll love it!” Matt, 21
