Leeds is a fantastic city in which to live and learn: vibrant, exciting, creative, welcoming. And with a thriving student population of over 200,000, you’ll soon feel at home! There are great student haunts (especially around Headingley) including café/bars, nightclubs and gigs.
It’s “the best UK university destination” and “the best place in Britain to live”, according to The Independent. It’s “the UK’s sexiest city” (according to the Young Persons’ Railcard Poll) and “the UK’s best shopping destination” (the Rough Guide to Britain).
With a population of around 750,000, Leeds is the ‘capital’ of Yorkshire. There’s an amazing shopping quarter, and fantastic nightlife—but it also has quiet spots, it’s close to great countryside, and life here is comparatively affordable.
There’s loads of historical and contemporary culture, and sport is also high on the agenda—not least because we’re home to world champions, cup-holders and major teams in rugby, football and cricket.
