Why did you decide to study at the University of Leeds?
As I attended the Open Day before, I found that the campus is very concentrated and beautiful, and I am really interested in the course.
Why did you choose this particular course?
I really enjoyed doing maths during high school, and I want to continue discovering my interests about maths.
What have been the best aspects of studying your course, and why?
I think the best aspect of studying Maths is it can train your brain and make you think logically. Because Maths is mainly about logic and doing Maths everyday can influenced you unconsciously to think logically.
Tell us about some of the exciting projects you have completed on your course?
We have done some mini projects about computing languages, such as R and Python, and we have also done some projects with Excel.
What does Leeds as a city have to offer students?
Leeds is a small city compared to London and Manchester, and not very busy, so it is suitable for studying. And the shopping centre is concentrated and not far from the University, which is very convenient for students to get what they want.
What are your ambitions for the future?
My ambition for the future is to be able to apply what I have learned in the university in my future career.
What experiences at Leeds do you think will help you in your future career?
The university often offers career fairs, which can provide us a great opportunity to talk to the companies’ interviewer face-to-face. Also, the university has the employment team which can help us with our future careers such as giving suggestions about writing CVs.
What would you say to students coming to do the same course?
I would say try your best to do preview and summary of lectures, and always talk to your personal tutor if you have any problems, and join societies to enrich your life.
