I have found this course challenging, intellectually stimulating and enjoyable. I appreciate the mixture of theoretical and practical study and I feel that this has helped me to improve the conceptual aspects of my practice. I would recommend this course highly to any spiring artist.

One downside was my year broad which I found to be poorly managed and overall disappointing. This was due to the lack of teaching at the partner institution in France.

Dentistry is a very varied career, as is the degree! Here at Leeds we study an integrated masters with very early patient contact (in the first year). There is a good balance of clinical and non clinical work in the first year, with lectures being intellectually stimulation and the exams quite challenging.In terms of the clinical side, we learn early on using the phantom heads how to scale teeth and the tooth morphology and placement. These classes are very hands on.

A lot of hands-on work such as labs and projects. You actually learn to apply the principles that you learn in the lectures. Projects include designing a suspension system for a buggy, designing electronic circuitry for remote control and creating an iPhone app. The staff are enthusiastic about their subjects and are always ready to spend extra time explaining material if something is not clear. A lot of support material, as well as the recordings of the lectures are available on university’s online learning page, which makes any information available at arms reach.There are numerous socials throughout the year between the departments, which help you meet people from other courses. In addition to that, every department has their own society, that is lead by students. The societies organise extra socials and help you out with making connections in the industry and finding a job.Highly recommended engineering course that combines the best of electronic and mechanical engineering.

The course involved modules that cover a wide range of scientific topics, such as molecular biology, genetics and microbiology. It is taught mainly through a lecture format, with regular tutorials and lab sessions, maximising contact hours. The lecturers are easy to talk to and answer queries quickly. They also include lots of resources that are easy to access, that aid the learning of the lecture taught. There are regular assessments, but this helps as if you don't do well in one, it doesn't have a major impact on your grade, but they also add up, which leads to a big chunk of your grade being completed before you've even sat an exam. Overall, it is quite a complex course, with regular work that needs to be completed, but there is always help available, with additional maths classes being run to help with calculations and drop in sessions to go over areas you don't understand within the modules. This course is enjoyable however, as it is quite social due to being in uni quite alot and having small tutorial sessions and lab tables. Help is always available when required and the resources are useful for exams and coursework (Being a range of MCQs, essays, lab reports and problem solving exercises)

The course is taught to a high standard but teachers that know what they are doing well. It is however, very stressful, particularly as we study abroad in Japan in our second year (compared to most universities going in their third year) meaning the work load is high.There is additionally some problems starting to arise in regards to staffing for the cultural modules however the department is doing everything they can to fix this.

The course is very much theory based and so there are only a few labs per year, meaning most of the time you will be in lectures. This can mean its a little overwhelming at times but the actual content is nothing too crazy. The lecturers vary for each module but most of them do try to interact with you and always welcome questions. Overall i enjoy the course

My degree builds on the foundations of a business degree by expanding into areas that touch on the complexities of operating across borders, and not just domestically. It not only focuses on the international economic environment, but also on cultural differences between countries which could help or impede business. This course covers a broad range of functions and could be useful to anyone who is unsure of which area of business they would like to work in. There is also an option to spend a year abroad studying or working in industry.

Chemical engineering at University of Leeds is a hard course. However, our lecturers are really helpful and the university is really organised. They provide us with lecture captures for the most of the modules, lecture notes, additional reading and past papers to prepare us for the exams, tests and assignments. Also, there are tutorial classes every week to ask anything we didn't understand.

The mechanical engineering course is well organised and delivered. We are given both theory and practical knowledge to be a true engineer. Students’ opinions are well received. There is the employability team that is really helpful for student regarding career development including internship, graduate program or placement year. You can get help in technical stuff like tips on good CV or interview. The school has extensive network and partnership with various companies. The university is one of t best university in Leeds. There are many researches and great project going on, thus offers a lot of opportunity for the students. The university has great facilities and is located in a great location which is in a walking distance to the city and also near to the student friendly residential.

The best thing about studying two languages at Leeds is that you get to spend more time abroad with a term in your second year and the whole of your third year. Another thing, especially in the final year, is the variety of modules on offer and the passionate lecturers that teach them. I like the forms of assessment because it's not all down to an exam - we also have essays, projects etc. The degree is well structured, with obligatory grammar modules in the languages as well as optional modules you choose to make up the full credits. However, I don't think there are enough timetabled slots for speaking the languages - one hour of conversation per week is not enough to improve your skills and confidence in a language before going on the year abroad or to maintain your skills when you return from the year abroad. Our opinions are heard because there are student reps for each course, so if you have problems or suggestions for improvement, these are addressed. There are also events, talks, presentations etc for careers with languages, and Leeds is an esteemed university in which to study languages.
