Amazing experience in University of Leeds.

I quite enjoy my study in the University of Leeds so far. The lecturers are nice and I try to get involved into lots of activities and societies as well. The advice I will give is that you just can not ignore the strength of the student union, that's wonderful and just take part into it you will have lots of fun.
