What was your impression/experience of the facilities, the staff, your peers, the student union, the City of Leeds and the region itself? What would you recommend to future students?
Leeds is an excellent academic institution, with the Business School in particular standing out as a great place to learn. The staff are experts in their fields, the facilities cater to all students, and Leeds as a city offers so many opportunities outside of academia for students to grow and maintain a balanced lifestyle.
What would you say is your defining memory of studying here? (eg friendships made, confidence in your abilities, or any single event that you will always remember?) And would you recommend the Business School to others
My defining memory of studying within the Business School is the opportunities for growth and development that exist for students. The University and its staff support students in all of their pursuits related to academia, and those outside of it; whether that be funding granted by the School for student led societies, or staff support in entrepreneurial pursuits, it is evident that those who study at Leeds are cared for.
