JUST FOUND THE DUDE NEXT TO ME!!! Just the 3 girls to go
I'm glad it helped Thought i'd share, I have posted this onto a seperate thread in the Leeds university section just in case people want to find it and can't through this one. At least that way you dont have to scroll through pages and pages to find it as it's on the very first page
Happy Hunting

Hi all. I wanted to post here before making my own thread on the forum, but I have a question regarding accommodation for international students.
I'm from NYC and I'll be studying at Leeds in the spring, but I'm not too sure about accommodation arrangements. If I wanted to get private accommodation while I studied abroad at Leeds, would I be able to get semester-long contract as opposed to 39/42 weeks? I did want to do my full year abroad but I'm only able to go for one semester, so I'm not sure where this leaves me in regards to housing.
Additionally, should I go for university accommodation instead and will they even let me have only a semester-long contract? This might seem like a dumb question but in the States we pay for stuff per semester -- tuition, housing, meal plans, etc. haha. So any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

If you're coming for the second semester - no problem either way. Yes, you can get university accommodation (you would need to apply online between November 1 and December 1) but, if you prefer private housing, you may be able to get a really good deal - there will be people who have left university but are tied into private housing contracts and will be looking for someone to take over their contract. The best place to look is the Unipol student to student noticeboard http://www.unipolnetletleeds.co.uk/n...rd/default.asp

No, I'm returning to education after full time work, officially classed as a mature student. Have been in full time work ever since my dad took ill, so i never managed to complete my A-levels, I applied to Leeds for the Interdisciplinary Science foundation degree and got accepted.
Should have done this a long time ago but better late than never. Now that I know tht my family will be alright without my help, I can continue looking towards a future with working with animals. Which is something that I'v always wanted to do

Thank you
Yeh I really want to work in either animal conservation or animal rehabilitation. I wanna work all over the world and the one place I really wanna go to is south Africa.
Really wanna make a difference to endangered species. So as I said better late than never.
22 and going into university. But I'm sure there are lots of people who go to university later in life.

Oh you're only 22? I'll only be starting my main degree then. You're still so young. For my medicine interview. There was a 44yr old and she got in , I'm gonna be in uni till 26 i wanna be a humanitarian doctor in south America for a couple of yrs cos it would just be so cool!
There's a south African woman at my work who wants me to come and live in south Africa :laugh:

Well for that kinda work, ive been told it's mainly work experience after your degree. So basically these projects that you volunteer for in other countries would be my work experience. Not only will I get relevant contacts for my career choice i'll also get the work experience too.
I'm working as a casual at work after september so I can save up for these projects and fund them myself
Yeh i'll be 26 by the time I finish my foundation and the actual degree course. I WAS thnking about a masters but I'm not too sure how to go about it, iv looked into t but there's not a masters course that I like the look of. I'v been told to wait since masters course's change and new ones appear too.
See I love animals, would love to work with David Attenborough. Or craig Busch (the lion man) But my dream career would be to work in yellowstone national park with the wolves, even though that it's been decreed that wolves aren't an endangered species anymore and the USA have made a bill for a wolf hunting season
Would love to work in south africa nursing orphaned animals to better health and releasing them back into their habitat
Can't wait
