Find out what our current and former students have to say about studying on the Social Science BA course.

I had always wanted to fulfil my dream of getting a degree, as I enjoyed learning and felt like I had missed out, due to family circumstances, when I was younger. When my children became old enough, and began to do degrees of their own, I knew it was my time. I chose Leeds because of its excellent reputation and the foundation course seemed an ideal place to start my journey.

The course has been a real game changer for me, I have developed my essay writing skills and I can not fault the teaching staff they are so supportive and have helped me adapt to this new way of learning.

I really like my course and all the modules that we have covered so far, a particular highlight for me would be that the modules are all subject and things that we are living in right now so it is very easy to understand and engage in it.

I’m originally from Birmingham and initially decided after college not to go to university. However, after working for a bank for a number of years I decided that it was time to pursue higher education. So I quit my job and came to study at Leeds…turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made!
