I was a postgraduate student doing my Masters and it was very emotionally draining. However, it was the most rewarding and life changing experience due to its supportive environment, good student union with delicious food and also the food markets every Monday on the campus itself. I really like the libraries as well where I used to study for exams and do my coursework. Access to the City Centre was also very easy from the campus where I used to explore and eat out a lot. The Careers Service were also very helpful in helping me to find direction in where I wanted to go next and have managed to secure a PhD and funding to continue my time at Leeds. I would with confidence recommend Leeds for future students because of its great supportive environment and great places to eat out. Also, great place to figure out what you want out of creating an independent life and Leeds can enhance your true capabilities. Ever though my Masters is over, my time in Leeds has not come to an end. :)
One of the best years of my adulthood life. I must say one year is very short for such a fantastic experience, but I feel like I gained so many things during my time at the University of Leeds. The staff and lecturers are kind and helpful, the modules structures are fantastic, and we have the best student union in the UK. I would never trade my experience at the University of Leeds with anything.
Awful experience, wish I chose a metropolitan. I don't know what they're doing to the students. But during my time, the referendum vote meant life or death. If you go to university, don't bring up politics. I didn't gain a single friend, got asked to leave multiple societies, which ironically I got suggested to join because apparently it's unhealthy to just work, Don't listen to people who tell you that you can "spread your wings", you can't. By law you can only do 120 credits a year, yet you're only in University less than 30 hours a week; sometimes less than 10. No matter how fast you do your work, it will not be accepted unless you submit it within a small frame near the submission date. I didn't go to University to get drunk and have drugs, I went to study, work hard, have my head down 60-70 hours a week. A total disappointment. I shouldn't have to go the same pace as the hungover dude at the back.
If you are a sound person who likes house parties and socialising with a ton of interesting and unique people then this is almost definitely the best university experience in the UK. The campus is top tier, so is the union, and Hyde park is just a one mile radius of almost all student houses and it has been one of the best experiences I could imagine to live there for 3 years.
To be honest, going to the University of Leeds for my Masters (Bioscience) was the worst decision I have made academically. The Faculty of Biological Science is a complete shambles causing delays in feedback, and is rife with miscommunication. If you complain, it goes nowhere and meeting with the head of course was terrible as I was doing well and therefore had my complaint dismissed. The stress this course gave was unbelievable and don't get me started about applying for mitigation. Even with medical evidence, they don't approve mitigation despite a GP advising why it should be granted. The whole course was a disgrace leading to me leaving with nothing. I would strongly suggest that people choose a different university.
Probably the best mix of academic excellence and party life in the country. Definitely the best student union in the country, LUU is awesome. Careers service are okay but nothing special. The campus may have looks that only a mother can love but no one ever has much else bad to say about the uni.
First two years were amazing with great tutors who were enthusiastic about our work. Left for an internship in September 2017 and returned autumn 2018 When returned the course had a completely new course leader who unlike in previous years, final year was run by a guy who had no experience in education but instead had experience in the New York fashion industry This is way too old school for what a modern course needs! He never had anything good to say about our work and was often plain disrespectful about our work -making many of us cry. I felt like I could never discuss my ambitions creatively whilst in Final year & it always had an affect on my personal life on this course. I developed depression and just felt worthless due to the criticism received. In the 2nd semester of final year I managed to pull it together (without the help of the main tutors of the course the garment techs were the best)but do NOT study here under the new course leader!it’s toxic!!
Diverse and helpful university. School of Law always has something going on like a breakfast, socials, etc. but downside is, there is a massive drinking culture if you're like me and don't drink. Although there are societies like High on Life which are for non-drinkers so very diverse and respectful to other cultures/beliefs.
I did a semester abroad in Leeds and I can only recommend you to do the same or at least to do a semester abroad in general. + lost of students in the city + teaching standard is on a high level + small seminars + ...
Mental health support for Black and ethnic minority students is non existent and support for Black international students is appalling. The union treats the BME societies like second class citizens from my experience of dealing with them, however the university has great facilities and career advancing opportunities. I’d suggest leeds employ a diverse range of mental health support workers who can understand different perspectives and cultural differences.
Libraries do not open 24/7 which is a big no. The libraries are basic and limited in amount. Computer clusters are all riddled with disease and filth due to lack of maintenance. The uni is too strict in terms of attendance, and non academic staff (especially student support or admissions) are rude. Buildings are basic (especially engineering). The uni has amazing lab equipment, a good campus layout, and a lot of socializing events. Good food. Good and capable lecturers and staff. Other unis are leaps and bounds ahead of leeds, would not recommend. Sheffield was tons better, but con is the small city centre
Can't rate the clubs and societies since I didn't join any as I didn't know what was going on living so far from the campus. Good campus, great diversity, nice location, good careers service and module + assignment for my course to help with employability.
The campus is huge and it is easy to get lost. There is a lot you can be a part of but no one is goiyto force you. It’s more proactive than forced way of teaching, learning or even socialising. Come with an open mind and fresh attitude and you’ll love it!
Internet is on and off around campus, depends where you are. SU is one of the best in the country and many societies available (although some get significantly more funding than others, regardless of individual achievements)
Leeds Uni is such a nice campus, everything is pretty much in one space and takes about 10 mins to walk for edge to edge. Wifi is better on campus and clicks in much faster than at student housing. Student union is good on a friday for fruity and headphone disco event was one of the best nights ive had in leeds. Some really good bars and food places in the union and the refectory food is so good. Loads of clubs and societies most with a give it a go session before you pay membership. Sports socials are fun too.
Great university with talented staff. The way the university is organised and deploys it’s self it’s excellent. Only problem is the buildings are old and ugly, eg Roger Stevens is a mosh pit at times and EC stoner looks like a prison
WiFi is Eduroam so is temperamental at times... Campus is big so you'll only know your way to the SU, your lectures, some libraries and the food. But, it's a nice campus with some green spaces and you have the old, redbrick buildings to make you feel like you're not a disappointment to your parents! Join any society and you'll have a great time! Can't recommend that enough! The SU is great! It has a bank, bars, clubs, shop etc Always careers events and the social media pages are always active! You have to just make the effort to go or read them.
I studied in one of LUBS program, and they have bad classrooms (we didn't get classrooms in business school as it supposed to be). Comparing to the money you spend to study there, I expected much better facilities. The good thing is this university has wide range of societies and activities, which can accommodate your passion and hobbies.
Not a bad Uni overall, the campus looks nice but the actual facilities are kinda bad. For a graphic design course they don't even have industry standard machines for the most part and you'll struggle to find a place to work besides you're own flat. The internet doesn't work wirelessly in my flat, so defeats the object of even having it. The students union is non existent besides asking people to constantly fill out surveys and organising Otley Runs every other day. Don't think I've heard from the careers service in my entire life and the clubs + societies just look depressing.
Leeds isn't what you expect it to be. Despite it looking great online with promises of it being super social and the 'ideal' university experience, with a mixture of academia and great nightlife, do not be fooled. Despite Leeds looking great, the reality is very different and not as glossy as the pictures would let on. Rather the lectures are poor, the accommodation is incredibly spread out and un-social and the majority of students do not care about studying but rather fill their time with dnb events and drugs. The city is vast and a concrete jungle, so -again - be prepared what you're getting yourself into coming to Leeds.
Leeds has a lot to offer! Excellent facilties in terms of libraries and sport, some buildings are a bit old but most have modern interiors. The Union is known to be one of the best in the country and there is always events going on and so many societies to choose from.
University of Leeds is such a great university for every type of student. It is very diverse and offers such a wide range of courses and activities. There are so many different clubs to join depending on your interests. The uni keeps you up to date on work experience or volunteering opportunities related to your course, they are very career orientated. The staff here are extremely helpful and there are lots of resources offered or available to you if you find yourself struggling with your course. Our student union employs many students. It has a few clubs and a bar in the downstairs area, as well as a shop, vending machines, cash machines and places to eat. There is also a small Santander bank in the student union building. The campus is quite large and there are many different buildings which look lovely. The campus is also around a 5-10 minute walk from the city centre, and has a few residences on site should you choose to live in halls on campus.
Huge campus with lots of facilities and places to eat/drink/study and socialise. Loads of clubs and societies to choose from and huge support from the university to be involved. The students union is the best bit about Leeds and has loads of bars/shops/clubs right in the centre of campus.
Eduroam can be a little slow at times but it's one of the very few downsides to the university. The libraries and other facilities are so well equipped and popular that it can be hard to find space to study at times as everyone is making the most of what the university has to offer.
Not sure about the careers service yet as still first year but overall great campus, location within Leeds is fantastic, campus is beautiful and compact, union has great facilities such as shops and food as well as social areas and bars
Can get internet literally everywhere in leeds. There are plenty of societies to join which throw incredible events. Everything is on campus if you need. In the union there are places to eat and every friday and saturday it turns into a club. Great fun.
Leeds University is the best place to spend your year abroad. It does not matter how you like studying because you will find the perfect place in any of the libraries. I have never been a library person but I really enjoy reading in Laidlaw library looking through the window when it's getting dark. Furthermore, clubs and societies help you to discover what you really like and gives you the opportunity to try new things. Being part of a society helps you to meet a lot of new people and is so much fun. It really makes a difference in your life. Finally, one of my favourite places on campus is the union where I have spent the best nights out while being in Leeds. You do not expect a lot of people going to uni on a Friday night but without any doubt Fruity is the place to be.
campus amazing and easy to find way round even though you do spend most time in building that your subjects taught in. havent taken much advantage of societies but all seem well run and passionate. joined the ski society to go on the ski trip and that was amazing! union good from what i hear. careers service amazing, so many talks held and lots of people to ask. wifi amazing all round campus including the gym and all libraries.
The university itself is beautiful and the support off admin staff is unreal however i felt that sometimes the tutors were less than forthcoming with being of assistance with having witness arguing and clear breakdown of professional staff relationships due to a groups final mark which is very unprofessional. I graduate this year and have been waiting for a mark which is now 2 days late and am incredibly fed up!!
Leeds has been a great experience as an international student. Great, helpful teaching staff who go out of their way to help. Great facilities and beautiful accessible campus just a few minutes from the city centre. One of the best student unions in the country as well.
I hated every second of being at leeds. I had student finance issues and I received no info from the uni at all until I moved into my halls and by that time I was behind on half the stuff I needed to do to register as a student. Long story short, even though the fact I didn't get student finance was the universities fault for not dealing with me through clearing the way they were supposed to, I was stuck with £6k debt I was told I had until the end of February to pay out of my own pocket (it was January when I had this dumped on me). They don't care about you as students they see you as customers. Majority of students not very friendly, staff are mediocre at best. I turned down Edinburgh to go to leeds and that is so far the biggest mistake of my life. Avoid leeds uni, literally anywhere else is better.
Leeds has an amazing city centre campus, great location, facilities and uplifting environment. Opportunities wise they are second to none. I have partaken in international trips with university charities, completed a year studying abroad and now I am currently on a fully funded summer school in Salamanca for a month learning Spanish. Thanks so much Leeds!
Got here through clearing, couldn't be more pleased! It is the perfect combination of being a genuine campus, but is right next to the centre of a major city. Hyde park/ headingly is a really fun place to live in later years.
After my first year at Leeds, I can confidently say that I have had the most incredible year of my life thus far. The opportunities available are endless and the facilities are second to none. The university is constantly investing to ensure that students are provided with the best possible education (this can be seen through the brand new Laidlaw Library and the investment plans to expand the already amazing students union). In addition to this, the quality of teaching is superb: lecturers and tutors are always readily available and the support network I have received has been invaluable. Leeds as a city is also a great place to live, comprising of a vibrant community and many fun places to go. I am so happy to have chosen Leeds and am sure that there are very few universities with similar opportunities and collegiate atmosphere to help students plan for the future.
Leeds University is a diverse, humble, yet prestigious institution. The students are friendly and the city is vibrant. The university does not discriminate and seeks to further the education of those from less advantaged and diverse backgrounds-for example, the access to Leeds module. The university itself has a superb campus with many beautiful buildings and elements from each subject taught there are splashed around.
I'm an international student and I could say that I actually do feel like home when I'm in Leeds! I am so glad I chose Leeds university. There are a lot of support groups especially for international students, making sure that everything goes in place for us also making us feel comfortable knowing that we're far from where our family members are. I had so much fun in my first year in Leeds
LUU Makes the University of Leeds the most amazing university to be part of. Genuinely, an incredible community, fantastic to be part of - and really helps you to Love your Time at Leeds. Thanks Leeds University Union!
It's ite but tries to be too cool, eg not selling bottled water is just bloody inconvenient. Big uni and good facilities and really close to the city which is great. Also a huge left wing bias throughout the whole uni so be prepared to be made to feel like a piece of s*** if you're not a raging liberal / socialist.
Lots of cafes across campus and good facilities in most places. Any changes that need to be done are either in process or about to have work started ie. SU. Career opportunities in the union are only advertised once a year and you have no idea when this is. Good, fast wifi available EVERYWHERE on campus
Union is amazing - it has absolutely everything you need and they're still going to refurbish it into something better in the summer. Lots of well placed, well stocked libraries and a be one on the way. Careers centre is always open and hosting events and things. Wifi is good and all over campus but it could be quicker in terms of download speed and speed of initial connection. So many societies - literally anything you could think of we have it and if not we have the opportunity to create it!
Everything is brilliant really. My friends are jealous of how awesome it is. We only have complaints about little things here at Leeds, and when I hear other people talk about their unis it really seems like we've got the best, easily.
Fantastic uni, I couldn't have picked better. The union is fantastic and there's so much to do and get involved in with societies and events. Also a great careers website/volunteering opportunities website and department. Beautiful campus.
A campus uni 10 minutes walk from the city, you get the best of both worlds. First class facilities and quality educators as well as a very diversed student body, I'm glad I picked this uni. And it has the best student union in the UK!
Leeds is amazing! It is in the best location in the city and also the country making it so easy to see friends elsewhere. Nightlife is insane, and there's also so many nice pubs and bars and restaurants for chilled evenings. The uni is beautiful and there's so much positivity around campus, and there's everything I wanted from a good gym, libraries, student union and social areas
Loved my time at uni of Leeds - my course (Medical Sciences) was brilliant and made a good group of friends from my course. The opportunity to try new things through clubs and societies is huge - one of the best student unions in the UK! Plus overall a really nice city - particularly with all the new developments (e.g. trinity) popping up.
