"Since I came to Leeds, I completed the undergraduate pre-sessional summer course and studied the International Foundation Year – Arts and Social Sciences Route. I am very enjoying my course with practical sessions as well as theory sessions which always keep my enthusiasm for my future career of becoming a professional in the theatre industry. Furthermore, I'm in love with the university's beautiful campus."
Mika Shirahama BA Theatre and Performance, Japan
"I am in my third year as a PhD student in the School of Politics and International Studies. Aside from my research, I am passionate about teaching and widening participation. That is why I teach politics to undergraduate students at Leeds and deliver academic workshops to local students as an Education Outreach Fellow and Access to Leeds tutor. I also enjoy visiting different cities and small towns in the UK. This is very easy to do from Leeds as the city is in an excellent location!"
