George Hobley

Talking about
Access to Leeds

Going to university wasn’t always on the cards for George but the support he got from Leeds has helped him to succeed in his studies.

“The University was there for me even before I started my course, which really settled my nerves and helped me understand more about studying for a degree.

“I joined Leeds through the Access to Leeds scheme and found the welcome events really useful. They were run by people who had similar backgrounds to me, so they knew exactly how I was feeling. The whole experience has been massive for my self-confidence.”

“The Plus Programme has been an ever-present force throughout my time at Leeds. I was very fortunate that I got a scholarship. The money helped me focus on academia, focus on getting a head start and doing the best I can.”
