I have had a great experience at the University of Leeds so far (2021/22 academic year) The campus and its facilities are great. All of the academic staff I have encountered so far have been very friendly, and show a genuine interest in their field of study and helping students succeed There also appears to be a lot of great services to help make you feel settled in, ensure you have a positive experience overall, and guide you with your career after your studies
I studied the foundation year in the International Study Centre. It was an online year, but I liked the campus where I resided near to it, and the University of Leeds ambassadors were very nice to interact with even when studying the foundation year. Overall positive experience.
Though I was promised an in person experience I got 0 hours at the actual university- it was all online so I can't tell you much about the facilities. the library spaces were open which was a nice place to get your work done. the union bars are very cheap. again because of covid societies were limited and no socials really. Law society was helpful on the career aspect but still not sure if it was worth the £30 probably not. the wifi is overall good but there were days were it would break which would be rather annoying but a good excuse to not do work :)
Wifi is shocking and the ethernet port in my room didn't work. Didn't get to experience any clubs or societies due to covid and most of campus was closed while being here. I'm sure it would of been better had it not been covid but not much I can do about it now.
Difficult to review due to current lockdown restrictions, disappointing that many clubs and societies haven't taken up the initiative to reach out to students to run virtual events. Have signed up to many mailing lists and never hear anything, the SU could have done more to encourage socs to reach out to new students this academic year. The campus itself looks lovely and never had internet issues while on site.
Awesome accommodation and service! Staffs here are so friendly. It is new and very clean. The great location makes my life in Leeds more convenient. There are also many great activities, everything thing is perfect!
Great in general! Good teaching and you can leverage your chances of getting good job if you make use of societies and other extracurriculars. Leeds is famous for student life. It definitely is better in many aspects than London.
The University of Leeds is an awesome campus and a place to study. I studied two MA here in English Literature and Communication and Media and now I am gearing up for my PhD in the latter. If I did not have such an awesome time and all the best academic support I would not choose this uni over and over again ❤️️
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.
