BSc Mathematics with Finance - First year student

How would you describe student life at Leeds?
It’s a great city with a lot of entertainment. I like watching football in the Leeds united stadium. There is even a little Chinatown if you feel homesick then you can go there. There is an indoor city market which I haven’t seen anywhere else. I am living in one of the University halls which I like. We have a Chinese restaurant downstairs and there is even a casino near by. You can meet new friends in halls and they are also very safe and secure which is good.

Why did you choose Leeds?
I think that Leeds is a great university and Leeds is a big city and I had visited Leeds before I decided to come and I thought that the University had good facilities. I visited Queen Marys as well but it was a bit old and I didn’t want to live in London because it is too crowded.

Why did you choose this course?
Mathematics was always my favourite subject and we need to use it everyday, if you are buying stuff you need to calculate and so I think that it’s useful.

What do you like most about your course?
I prefer Mathematics to the finance side. I like differentiation because I think that if I wasn’t studying Maths then I wouldn’t learn this.

What skills have you gained from your course so far?
I have gained some economic skills which has taught me how to buying on the stock market.

How would you describe your lecturers/ tutors/ supervisors?
I think that the tutors help me a lot. I prefer working in a small group than just listening to the lecturer because I can get feedback from the tutors. I am a bit shy and so I won’t ask a question in the lectures and so the tutorials work well for me.

What do you like to do outside of studying?
I like to play football with my friends in my free time. I also play badminton with my brother who also studies here.

What do you plan to do at the end of your course?
I’m thinking of doing a masters or go straight into work in Hong Kong.

What would you say to anyone thinking of applying to your course?
I think that the teaching is good, Leeds University ranking is good as well. If you are going to apply to a similar university to this one then I suggest that you just go for Leeds.
