    Picking this university was the best decision of my life. Yes it could be better organised, however those things are bearable when you have a campus as nice as this one.

    A real 10/10 experience. I would completely recommend moving away from home to attend university, especially in Leeds. I have gained so much independence and confidence that I would not have got from staying at home.
