If you want to learn English in the UK, there are so many cities you can choose. Many people go to big cities like London or Manchester, but here's a few reasons why (we think!) Leeds is he best choice:
1. Leeds is a beautiful city with lots of activities.
Leeds is unfamiliar to many people abroad, but this big city (Leeds has over 750,000 inhabitants!) has more than enough museums, bars, shopping centres, restaurants and sports centres to keep you busy while you study.
2. Leeds is a friendly city with lots of students.
So many universities mean that Leeds is a place great for studying and is full of many students, keen to socialise and make friends. Also, Leeds has a great international student population, so you can always find people from all over the world.
In the UK, Leeds has a reputation for being friendly, so you won't feel lonely or alone here!
3. It's close to everywhere.
Want to go to Manchester? It's around one hour from Leeds by train.
Want to go to London? It's around two hours from Leeds by train.
Want to go Edinburgh? It's around three hours.
Leeds' location means that you can travel around and see all different parts of the UK without spending too much time and money. You can even travel to Scotland easily. Leeds has a big train station and bus station, as well as an international airport, Leeds Bradford, if you want to travel further.
4. It's cheaper than the South.
We love London, but it's one of the most expensive cities in the world. The South of England is the most expensive part of the country, and high accommodation prices can mean that you run out of money quickly if you are studying English.
Leeds is around 30% cheaper than London, so you can afford to stay longer, study more and have more fun while you are here. Everything from food to accommodation and travel is cheaper, so it is important to think about this when you look for a place to study.
