    I've been looking at universities to study mathematics at and noticed that Leeds had good standings both overall and in mathematics. However, I didn't get a chance to go to the any of the Open Days. Can people that either have studied/are studying there or been to an open day tell me the pros and cons of Leeds and whether it is worth applying to? Thank you in advance.

    The city is decent, like any other major city if that is what you're used to, a variety of shops and different roads (they have a taco bell and a sushi place <3)
    The accommodation I think I looked at Central Village and Henry Price? I'm not 100% sure, but yeh the rooms seem small compared to other universities I looked at but the kitchen area seemed nice. I didn't really like the location of either but then that's up to you?

    Overall, Leeds Uni (that white library building bit) is within a 10 minute walking distance? from the city which is alright, hopefully it has more to offer than just the City which I'm sure it does, the people seemed friendly there and very helpful, my lecturer person that I met (not for maths) knew what she was going on about so that's a good sign.

    Honestly, Leeds to me is just one long street so far :P

    The course is fine but Maths has a lot of lectures which you should expect , the accommodation Central Village is decent , its on campus and is close to all things and it has a city atmosphere Leeds does!

    How difficult are you finding the maths area of your degree?

    It is very hard, quite a big jump from A level! As long as you go to your tutorials (smaller group sessions with a lecturer/teacher where you can ask questions and get help with homework) and PAL sessions (Sessions with second year mentors where they basically tell you how to do the homework) it is doable.
