My course is related to traffic management, transportation issues and policies. I did my undergraduate degree in civil engineering in Iran and was very happy to get the chance to study for this course at Leeds. I was keen to continue studying in a big, popular university in the UK or the USA.
Before I came to Leeds I looked up universities online and compared their rankings. I looked at lecturers profiles on the Institute for Transport Studies website and saw how strong they were, their reputations and publications, and I compared these with other universities.
When I started the course I met lots of people from all around the world, from South America, South East Asia and Europe. I found new friends and it was a good experience to be part of such a diverse community. I became familiar with different countries and cultures.
I like Leeds because theres student accommodation walking distance from the city centre, and you can easily find somewhere to enjoy yourself clubs, restaurants and shops. Its vibrant and not as expensive as London.
If youre offered a place at Leeds, definitely accept it because it will change your life and your future. I have a job to start in June, all I think because of the University of Leeds and its reputation. And if you want to continue your academic study Leeds is one of the best places in the UK.
