    I have but when I enquired about doing teacher training there they said i've got little chance. Shame because it's only 10 minutes drive away from my house!

    They get a lot of applicants basically and i've not done as much work experience as I have 2 year old twins and don't have good a-levels (mature student with plenty of other things though!). It's a campus uni, middle of nowhere really. Bus service into the city centre takes 20-30 minutes but horsforth is nearby and has lots of shops and pubs.

    If you want a smaller campus based university it's great but if you want nightlife etc based on geography i wouldn't recommend it.

    Hi, I'm currently in my first year at leeds trinity and i quite like the area There's a tesco's just down the road and a train station so you can go into leeds if you want to
    As for nightlife, yes it's a little village but the uni always has nights out and a coach comes a lot to take people to the clubs in leeds eg Halo, O2, Oceana etc. Plus there's frequent £1 nights in the student union bar in the centre of campus.
    Personally, i don't drink much so the nights out aren't a big deal for me but if thats something you're into then going out a lot is a possibility

    I'm currently at Trinity (about to start second-year English) and I love it.

    It's a small but friendly place, with pretty friendly people. Both the local train station and bus routes go into the City Centre, and there's plenty of interesting places there!
