My favourite thing about Leeds Beckett

I enjoy that everybody here is so different, but we all have a common goal. We all want to do well and be the very best version of ourselves - both for ourselves, but for our university too.

A fact about me

I won a Princess Diana award and got to meet Prince Charles!

(The Diana Award is the most prestigious accolade a young person aged 9-25 years can receive for their social action or humanitarian work)

Why I chose Leeds Beckett

Leeds Beckett always stood out as somewhere that was really friendly. I went to lots of Open Days, and they felt cold and formal. Leeds Beckett felt professional, but at the same time really warm and welcoming. I just felt like I belonged.

I live at home, but I enjoy the commute. In a way it has enhanced my experience - the travelling helps me to set myself up for the day, and see parts of Leeds on the journey that students in halls may not see. I take it all in.
