I am a first-year student and am loving my time at Leeds so far!! Everyone here is so friendly and supportive and I never feel afraid to ask questions, whether it be in lectures, on campus, or just to people passing by; there will always be someone who has an answer to your queries or questions. The facilities are fantastic and accessible to all and there is always something for everyone-and I mean everyone- to enjoy, ranging from nights out, pub quizzes, taster activities for groups and societies and even weekend trips to cities like Edinburgh and London- I would thoroughly recommend joining at least one of Leeds' societies! As well as the fantastic and expert teaching in lectures and seminars, where we have already covered a range of fascinating and diverse topics, ranging from literature, language and popular culture, there are many resources for students including skills workshops which are excellent when it comes to learning indispensable skills such as researching, referencing, time management and critical thinking-why would you not want to make the most of such excellent resources? Overall, my first semester so far at Leeds has been a great time and I cannot wait for the next few years of fun, learning and adventure!
