    Hi,

    I have a conditional offer to study at leeds, with a september start. I have met the offer conditions.

    I'm currently living in London and have the opportunity to attend a university here, also.

    I'm just wondering if any of you have any experiences or information that can help with my decision... Current students, or people who live in the Leeds area already... I would ideally like to live slightly outside of the city centre, somewhere a little more rural so to speak, and just drive in or take a short train ride...

    Congratulations to all who received offers from Leeds

    I have lived in London and currently I am in Leeds.

    There is no comparison, in my opinion, Leeds is friendlier, not over crowded, of course cheaper, and the countryside is absolutely breathtaking, I am living a 10 minute ride away from the center and where I live it's calm and quiet. I definitely prefer Leeds.

    Speaking about Uni, I don't know the Uni you are suggesting in London, but Uni of Leeds is in top ranks, and the campus is lovely.

    I'm from London and have lived in Leeds for around 5 years. I'd agree with Zadkiel, Leeds is a much nicer place to live than London. Cheaper, friendlier, less horribly crowded etc.

    In terms of somewhere to live away from the city centre, I'd suggest Headingley maybe, or perhaps one of the small towns nearby like Otley or Horsforth?
