Zhe's Story

Zhe graduated in 2009 with an MA in International Business. While studying at Leeds Beckett, he developed new methods of critical thinking. He also strengthened his knowledge of practical business skills. The MA in International Business course improved his confidence in English speaking and writing. Zhe has gone on to work as an English teacher. He works with students who want to study abroad and prepares them for the IELTS English Language Test.

Living in student accommodation gave me the opportunity to meet students from many different cultures and nationalities, and I became fully immersed in the English way of life – from playing football and watching the Premier League on the weekends, to buying clothes from Topshop!

Why I chose to study a Masters at Leeds Beckett University

I was drawn to Leeds Beckett’s background as a reputable university. I took advantage of a wide range of study resources and facilities, including the 24/7 libraries. The academic rigor of my course required me to work independently. This has allowed me to transfer knowledge to future prospective students.

Living in Leeds

To British culture lovers, studying in the UK is the best way to get an authentic English experience. I grew to love the Premier League, developed an English accent, and joined a weekly football team!

Living in Marsden House accommodation allowed me to live with students from different cultures.


Advice for International Students

My advice for Chinese students is to become friends with students from different countries. You can improve your English communication skills. Academically, I recommend two simple steps: preview and review. This way you will be able to follow along with the tutor more easily. Afterwards, you can review to strengthen your knowledge and prepare for exams.
