What our students say

Moses from Nigeria

Studied International Foundation Year in Business, Law and Social Studies and went on to study LLB Law

“The International Study Centre helped me a lot. At the moment, if it hadn’t been for the foundation course, if I had just gone straight to Leeds Beckett year one, I would feel so dreadful – about my coursework, interaction with fellow students and tutors. It really helped me because I understood the basic introduction to law and British politics. Besides that, I was very open-minded and open to talk to tutors.” 

Mbololwa from Zambia

Studied International Foundation Year Science, Engineering and Computing and went on to study BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching

“The teachers here are really friendly and they are really willing to help. If you are in the International Study Centre you can go straight to them and tell them your problem and they will arrange to meet you and sort it out. Or when you are at home you can just email them and they’ll send you back a response. If you are stuck on your homework you can send them a picture and ask for their help. I love our teachers.”

Jensen from Malaysia

Studied International Foundation Year in Science, Engineering and Computing and went on to study BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching

"It is really hard to meet friends to begin with, especially in your first year. But with the International Foundation Year, it feels like a family. Here, I have a Leeds family, and back home, there’s another family. This makes you less homesick. Especially when you are in a foreign land and you do not know anybody, it feels quite good that I actually have what I can call my Leeds family."

Zakria from Libya

Studied International Foundation Year in Business, Law and Social Studies and went on to study BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance

"Leeds is lots of fun as there is plenty to do. I like the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and everyone in the city is very friendly. I enjoy going to Hyde Park, Millennium Square, Royal Armouries and Leeds Museum. The museums are free which is great as I like history. I have visited lots of places including Sheffield, York, Oxford, Cambridge, Skipton, London and Manchester. I take the bus or train and it is easy to travel from Leeds.”
