Why did you decide to study a masters at the University of Leeds?

I originally chose Leeds because of the course and the student experience: it's exactly what I wanted to do, it gives me a lot of options to specialise in later years, and the lecturers are incredibly enthusiastic. I find Leeds university to be the perfect choice for  a study life balance

What has been the best aspect of studying on your course and at the University so far and why?

The best aspect was to be able to go back to football and join the team at Leeds, it was great reconnecting to a sport I loved at a competitive level.

Tell us about some of the exciting projects you have completed.

I was involved in a E-health project where we had to program an Arduino board to measure heart rates. This project gave me a great view on the Medical Electronics industry, it also help me understand different techniques in programming.  

What does Leeds as a city have to offer students?

Cheap, great night life, multicultural, great part-time jobs opportunities

Definitely the multicultural environment in Leeds is going to add great value to my corporate career
