Leeds is a multi-faculty university originally founded to challenge the exclusivity of Oxford and Cambridge. It’s very large (over 30,000 students), offers a rich plethora of courses, and is considered to be a relatively relaxed student city with vibrant nightlife and music scenes. Engineering and Languages are its traditional academic strengths, but with over 500 degree programmes there is many other excellent courses on offer. There are over 5,000 international students at the university.
