Make the world your home. A notion that inspired me to join the Leeds International Summer School (LISS). The University of Leeds is an extraordinary university that determines to develop a multicultural learning experience. Obviously, it wont let you down.
My first impression of LISS was that I was touching the whole world. Students from all around the world joined together, talked together and laughed together. The atmosphere was fantastic like I was participating the World Model United Nations. We shared life, experience, tried to merge in different culture. LISS created a small society like home.
University of Leeds is definitely an ideal place for you to spend your summer. Located just 10 minutes away from the city centre, you can easily get what you want. LISS provided me with excellent lodging that I could live without worry in the well-equipped room and cook in the kitchen. In free time, I could also access the sports facility, The Edge. With all you need, you wont feel bored in Leeds.
I attended The English Country House and Introduction to Psychology modules in the program. I am a business student at my home university and I was exploring myself from learning. These two modules gave me opportunities to learn not only knowledge but also the educational experience that was totally different in Hong Kong. Thanks to my lecturers, the classes consisted of many discussions and interactions which made learning fun and enjoyable. Whats more, field trips were organized. I had chances to visit different places like Harewood House, Temple Newsam, Castle Howard and The Hepworth Wakefield. They were not only about learning, they were also about feeling and exploring.
LISS held excursions and social activities for students that were unforgettable. We travelled to a lot of places such as York, Whitby, Ilkley, Knaresborough, Cambridge and so on. I was not willing to leave as the views were stunning and jaw-dropping. I treasured every moment with my friends from all over the world.
Come! Dont hesitate! The experience you gain from the LISS will be more than worth it. And trust me, this is the summer that changes your life!
