I love the university but fees is not worth it.
Tips: The culture is very different here. But there are many Indians so it doesn't feel much different. I didn't get any scholarship but I'm satisfied. I think the fees are too much for international students. The university ranking, faculty, and course modules are some of the important factors to consider before joining the university.
Likes (Student Life): The place is very student-friendly. It's mostly classes. I love the welcome fair they organise. I don't participate much but there are events like sexual violence campaigns, awareness events, social clubs, and different societies have events. I'm a LUBS society member which organises different social events for students.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): It's very difficult to permanently settle here. I think the recession and preference for British people might be the reason. I wouldn't settle here because the weather isn't very nice and I miss my country. Everything is so easy and cheap in India.

Just okay, not bad and not so great as well.
Tips: Definitely, I have grown a lot as a person, I feel more responsible and action-oriented person now. In my experience, I don't seem to have any cultural shift. I did not get any scholarships. I am satisfied with my university experience in terms of education and learning and all the opportunities available at the university.
Likes (Indian Food): A lot of restaurants and grocery supplies are easily available in the nearest market. A large variety of cuisine options are available in the city, any restaurants outside the city centre are cost savers than the ones in the city center. I mostly preferred cooking by myself because I did not liked to spend much on food.
Dislikes (Internships): My course curriculum did not have a mandatory industry option. No sort of guidance or anything is provided by the university about internships in my experience. You are however allowed to apply and even work as an intern but be careful about the curriculum weightage because there might be problems regarding managing work and studies.

Satisfied but not worth it
Tips: Limited Indian food joint options, the ones available are pricy. Public transport is unreliable and the university is great, but not value for money according to me. If you are a party person, then Leeds is a good student city with lots of pubs and clubs around.
Likes (Internships): Good opportunities and projects opportunities available which you can sign up for but it is upon you if you make use of that opportunity and take relevant action on time. Nobody is going to spoon-feed you here to get things done. Need to be independent and manage your time, finances and everything else well.
Dislikes (Value for money): Paying 27500 pounds fee which is now in fact 30000+ pounds for the same course is really not worth it. You should find other universities that offer scholarships. QS ranking just seems like a facade to me. Choose any Russell Group university and you should be alright.

Challenging, fun and unforgettable!
Tips: The university would not support your lifestyle thus you have to be responsible while making those life decisions. Any part-time role would not hinder your ongoing studies. However, the exams are not difficult though do not take it lightly. University will not help you in getting a job at all.
Likes (Student Life): There is a lot of exposure when it comes to being an international student. A high number of diverse societies and communities allows you to go above and beyond. The university often organizes events for freshers. It is up to you to be up to date about upcoming events and get enrolled before it gets sold out.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Permanent settlement options are very limited if any. Due to the strict implementation of immigration laws. The UK government has also increased the minimum income to stay in the UK from 30,000 pounds to 38,000 pounds. Also, the NHS fee would be increasing from this year onwards.

Mesmerising journey of a newbie to the country
Tips: I get to see a completely new culture but it won't transform you unless you are open to it. I spent my time with mostly Indians or Asians. I received 2500 GBP of scholarship which by default gets deducted from your tuition fee if you meet the merit criteria. I am satisfied with my university experience but hate to admit that job opportunities are quite bad here.
Likes (Student Life): Our university has great number of libraries, halls, cafeterias, and bars. One can literally live a life over there. Student clubs are quite active and they run multiple events. I personally liked Hindu society which conducted great events which helped gather lot of Indians.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): I have zero chances of permanent settlement as I haven't got a sponsored job yet. I am on my graduate visa right now. Given a chance, I would not like to settle here anymore seeing its poor opportunities and economic crisis when it is much better in India.
