Enjoy an exciting and fun social life
Leeds is a vibrant, affordable and multicultural city, known for its arts, sports, leisure, entertainment and nightlife. Located in Yorkshire, England, around 60,000 students live within the city boundaries. There’s a vibrant student community, making it an exciting place to live and learn. There are plenty of great things to do in Leeds.
While there's plenty to see and do here, Leeds remains a relatively inexpensive city in the UK. Accommodation, groceries, and restaurant bills are all typically lower in Leeds than London. As a major student city, there will also be plenty of opportunities for you to take advantage of exclusive student discounts.
‘‘Leeds is a very good place for students because it’s nice and cosy and everything is made for students. There are plenty of beautiful places and the parks are spacious, green and wonderful.’’

“Choosing to apply to the student ambassador position was way out of my comfort zone, I can just be honest about that. But I'm grateful for the opportunity and it made me get more skills and apply them in my daily life. It made me more open to speaking to different people and getting different perspectives from other ambassadors” – Awrad, a previous Student Ambassador
