Student Story

Dam Anh Duc (Mr.)
MSc Management, Leeds Beckett University
Sales manager
LOTTE Hotel, Hanoi 

“Naturally beautiful Headingley or modern City Campus with executive facilities, helpful staffs, lovely international friends from all around the world, and enthusiastic humorous teachers are all of my memorable experiences in Leeds Beckett University. The University is absolutely an amazing place to be, where I could find everything I want from my university experience; from big treasure of learning resources to open and reflective learning method, from professional academic seminars to practical assigned projects. I will never forget my student life at Leeds Beckett with variable social activities and amazing student societies and clubs with my fantastic friends and colleagues. The University is definitely a great supporter for all students, from administration tasks to learning process, or even our physical and mental life. My life was amazing in Leeds too, where I could find it easy to go down town for shopping, dining or clubbing from City Campus with a very short distance. Leeds Beckett University is without doubt my best destination for student life in England.”
