I saw only the one from last year, so I figured I'd start one up for the snazzy would-be freshers of next year (Sept 2015 entry).

What course are you thinking of applying for?
What are you currently studying?
Why Leeds?
Have you been to visit?

I'll start! I'm planning on applying for the Advanced Psychology course hopefully with a placement year, so I'd be spending a grand total of 5 years in the place. I'm currently studying Psychology, History and Religious Studies, predicted A*A*A.

Why Leeds? It's a campus uni that isn't in the middle of nowhere. I'm from London and naturally I like/am used to the busy and hectic pace of the city. I want the uni I go to to be a home away from home. I haven't been to visit yet, but I've heard it's amazing and I've been watching videos etc. I hope to visit soon but really it's between Leeds or Bath for me.

Your turn (:

What course are you thinking of applying for?
Politics and Parliamentary Studies. I wouldn't mind the straight Politics course but I really want to do the placement year.

What are you currently studying? I am studying Politics, History and Economics at A2 and predicted A*AB. I'm resitting Economics to hopefully end up with an A. I'm also doing an EPQ and I have AS grades in Law and English Literature from last year.

Why Leeds? Leeds is a place I immediately fell in love with. I've been to the city a few times and I am completely comfortable with the environment. I'm from Birmingham and I want to live in a big city with a good nightlife and opportunities for my hobbies like contemporary dance and alternative music. Also, there is no other course in the country that offers placement in both Congress and the House of Commons which is an amazing opportunity. I know that I will finish with a high quality degree from a top institution and have the best time socially as well.

Have you been to visit? I went to the open day in September and the campus is huge. I think they said the main campus was like 100 acres. I came with my mom but she left me to go to the subject talks by myself and it was quite fun to find my way around because I got to know the campus a little. I had a look at the social sciences building which was all new and shiny it's just so exciting. The whole uni is just amazing. I hope the next time I come it will be with an offer!

Warwick,KCL/UCL(Undecided here),Manchester or Bath/Bristol(Undecided here as well).
P.S I am not even sure whether I'll be applying here.I was looking at Birmingham's ranking and it seemed to tempt me to apply there.

What course are you thinking of applying for?

History

Business Studies
EPQ on the Xinhai Revolution in China (I.E course relevant EPQ)

AS Grades:
AAAB

UMS Average across the three taken to A2:

Why Leeds?
I am very academically interested in East Asia and Leeds Uni is one of the few universities which has a specialism in the region. The campus is excellent, the Student Union is fantastic, and it is not too far from home.

I'm nervous as well! I'm worried that I'm setting my heart on it and if I don't get an offer I'd be so broken let me know when you've sent it!

Will do! I know I said it was between Leeds or Bath but I think ultimately I'd be way happier at Leeds I think. I wish you all the best <333

Hey I'm thinking of applying for a Geography Bsc which is AAB. Leeds will hopefully be my firm if I get an offer!

I study Physics, Maths and Geography and for AS I achieved AABB and predicted AAA.

I went to the open day and fell in love by the fact that it is a campus uni yet so close to the city so you're not isolated and the feel of it was amazing and the buildings were beautiful. They are also building a brand new geography department for our year so that would be a plus :3

Good luck everyone!

I'm applying for psychology at Leeds At the minute I'm studying psychology, sociology and English Literature. I loved Leeds when I went to visit in June and it looks such a good course for psychology! I love the campus and location as well. I'm sending my application off this week and I'd be so happy if I got an offer! It's definitely my first choice

Hey I'm applying for Broadcast Journalism . I'm currently studying History, Sociology and English Literature and am predicted three As at A2. I loved the mix of old and new buildings at Leeds and the fact that despite being in a large industrial city there's greenery on the campus. When I visited the media and communications department the staff were very approachable and helpful unlike some of the universities I've visited.
