I’m an exchange student here, the first week was better than I thought it will be. All of the teachers were really kind and helpful, and I explored the amazing parties in Leeds.
I never thought that living in a University accomodation can be this good. The place is great, the rooms are not so big but enough for a student. This accomodation has a great society, we have amazing opportunities (like free pancakes, tickets to sold-out parties). The place is a bit loud sometimes but which accomodation is not..
I could find everything easily. The classrooms are spacious. The library is amazing, there are cafes and people who help you find materials for your essays. It’s a huge help. The sports facility is the best so far. There is a swimming pool with saunas, squash room, and fitness room. My favourite is the LUU which is the Union place. It’s full off places to eat, to work and have social life.
I learned so much here. The seminars are great, we have the opportunity to talk to each other and share our thoughts. In our laboratory sessions we are independent in our work, we have some help but we can arrange our time which is good. The lectures are well-structured and short. In one module there are different teachers to each topic which is a bit confusing.
Leeds became my absolut favourite. I come from Budapest, which is a much bigger City. Most of the people here are students, so the City life is exciting. Leeds is full of shops and restaurants. The night life is amazing, even the University offers great parties on campus.
Chemistry sounds really difficult but it’s not. People think it’s just all about maths and boring reactions. Sure these are a part of it, but here in Leeds you can learn so much more of chemistry. The laboratory sessions are really exciting and fun. We have some interesting courses too, like extraordinary chemistry, where we learn to write some scientific articles too. We have to write some essays in the easter break but it’s not that hard. We have plenty of help from the University.
