lighternote: Please any Nairalander in Leeds? I would
like to know more about the following;
* Student life
* Accommodation
* Student jobs
*how good is Leeds University in terms of employer ratings?
* ..... and so on
Thank you.

Student life in Leeds is great, the best in Yorkshire, vibrant city with two universities and plenty plenty colleges, a lot of student accommodations scatters around Leeds city centre and beyond.

Leeds transport system is good, has the best train station in west Yorkshire, 45mins away from Manchester but about 3-4hrs away from London by train.

The accommodations close to university and the city centre are pricey, but if you can afford it then you are in for a good time because its a lively place to be.

There are student jobs in Leeds but you have to search well to get one because things are hard thesedays and jobs are not as available as it used to be.

I don't know much about employment rating for Leeds university but considering the fact that its a good university and in a great city, the job rating will be high.

Thank you.

Sheffield and Leeds are similar, both have two universities, fantastic student community, great social life, biggest train stations and about 45mins away from each other.

Sheffield is in south of Yorkshire while Leeds is in west. Just like in Leeds, the accommodation and job situations are similar.

Sure you can apply for your Phd program in Canada from the UK, you don't have to return to Nigeria for that.

Abeg please go, there are many Nigeria's there to keep you company. The bigger boys and girls are in the business school. Plus I'm tired of brainy Nigerian's wasting their talents in rubbish uni's. It's not much more than the other Unis. Scrape together the cash and go there! bless xx

What you mean by rubbish UNI'S? Even a college degree holder competes with graduates from top universities for jobs.

University in the UK is expensive, make the most of your cash by going to a decent one. That is all I'm saying, in the midst of educated individuals one shouldn't have to defend advising someone to attend Warwick . . . . . . . lipsrsealed lipsrsealed lipsrsealed

Me either, i just remembered you graduated from one of the top 5 universities in UK.

Sagamite: Queensmith said she has a medical degree from a UK Top 5 university but yet argues that:

a) Obese women have equal chance of attracting mates as slim women.

b) Men that are 10 years older than their partners are perverts but being gay is no
