“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.”
“I like the Leeds International Study Centre as we are in small classes instead of big lectures which is good for my development. It also means the tutors know you and you can ask questions, and you can bond with other students more. The teaching style is more independent than at school which I am getting used to.”
"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."
"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.”
