Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
Over all my experience of uni has been brilliant so far. It's a lovely campus with something for everyone, it has literally everything on it so there's no need to ever even leave campus. But the city center is super close (10-15 minute walk) and there are loads of parks too
