When you move to a new environment to study, it can take time to settle in and find friends, but Leeds made this adjustment easy. I was really impressed with the range of activities and opportunities you can get involved in.
Leeds University Union (LUU) has so many different clubs and societies, you can meet people with similar interests or try something new and step out of your comfort zone. The cultural societies are really popular. Ive attended food tasting with the Korean society, learnt about Taiwanese culture and met friends at the Japanese societys weekly meet-up.
The Business Confucius Institute has a calendar of events and activities throughout the year another opportunity to experience and learn about a different culture whilst meeting new friends. The University of Leeds has given me plenty of opportunities to get involved in its multicultural community.
Each year the Intercultural Ambassadors Programme offers student volunteers training in cultural awareness and intercultural communication, plus funding and support to run intercultural projects on campus and in the local community, as part of a multicultural team. The opportunity is open to all students from any study level or year of study.
