Bet they don’t even know what Good Life is

Leeds University is the second most popular uni in the UK for freshers starting in 2016.

The findings, from whatuni.com, suggest Leeds has received the second most applications from prospective students.

We’re also second in the UK for first and firm choices in UCAS applications.


More than 8,000 students submitted their UCAS choices through Whatuni.com’s online Final 5 tool, where they were required to list their top five unis in order of preference.

Loughborough gained the top spot, while Manchester, Nottingham and Surrey also made the top five.

Welfare Officer Freya Govus said: “We are really pleased that lots of prospective students want to come to the University of Leeds.

“We strive to make sure all students love their time at Leeds, which our Students Satisfaction Score of 92 per centreflects.

“There’s plenty here to offer to prospective students, from our excellent student advice service to our 320+ clubs and societies that students can get involved in and the amazing, diverse city we are a part of.”
