Leicester VS Leeds,which is better?Watch
I applied for Mass Communicaiton, but I am not sure which uni to go, can any1 give me some advises about the 2 ?
Leeds or Leicester? from the reputation, city, safety, environment....etc
I went to Leeds for my brother 21st as he's already there so it was me and a bunch of students. We were on the supposedly world famous Otley Run which is a massive bar/pub crawl. It had to be one of the most fun nights out i've had ever. All the students get on by the looks of it and theres no one out to cause any trouble or anything. There was about 30 of us singing "wheels on bus" at about 12o'clock at night as we trekked to the next pub. Leeds actually is a very popular university and the social scene of the place is probabaly one of the best and with Manchester only about an hour its in a great location.
Leeds is also one of the best research led universities apparently. Not read much into this but they seem to make alot of discovery type things on there main website where it details them.
The environment within the city centre is really nice and it looks as though they've been improving it alot recently and it has its own Harvey Nichols which is apparently a good shop. Pretty much it means its popular and emga expensive i think. If i was a woman i'd probabaly be upto date with my fashion and clothing shops but sorry im not. The campus is what I liked the most. Compared to Manchester i preferred it so much more and it jsut generally appealed to me as somewhere i reaslly wanted to be.
Im staying at Bodington Hall hopefully which although is 4 miles out is a great student environment by the sounds of it and it throws its own social events. Theres are tons of places to stay though and all the accomadation has its own advantages.
Crime is a bit of an issue in Leeds but then again it is in every major city e.g. Manchester(where im from) London etc, and as long as you don't go anywhere stupid and stick with a group of 3 or 4 people at night you'll be fine.
Well thats all i can recall reading myself about Leeds, hoep some of that info helped. Can't help you with Leicester, but i suppose all universites have the same sort of thing.
don't you think safety is a problem?
god.im really not sure. i m going to study communication, the course in leeds is more famous than leicester. just about safety problem....and leeds is in the north of england, is there cold in winter? i am from the south
