The city of Leeds

With a population of three-quarters of a million people, Leeds is home to people from 75 different nationalities. This gives the city a strong multicultural base, and makes Leeds an especially welcoming place for all origins and faiths.

Leeds has thriving nightlife, arts and culture and is one of the UK's ultimate shopping destinations, home to traditional markets and elegant shopping plazas.

When you want a change from the city, you'll find breathtaking scenery in the Yorkshire countryside. The Yorkshire Dales are a 40-minute drive from campus, and you can reach Yorkshire’s coastline, steeped in heritage and beauty, in less than an hour.
