I choose the University of Leeds because it seems to have a much more collaborative atmosphere than many other universities, making it much easier for you to investigate and answer scientific questions.
International postgraduate students are an integral part of Leeds research community and contribute to our reputation for excellence. We currently have around 1500 research students studying for the degrees of PhD, MPhil, professional Doctorates and Master's degrees by research.
