What made you want to study your course at the University?

I decided to study my course because I loved the fact the course combined both film and photography as not many universities do this. Secondly, I think Leeds is an amazing place to live, especially as a student; it's exciting and there's lots to do.

Describe the aspects of the course that you have enjoyed the most. 

I thoroughly enjoyed my final year photography project as this was a really great opportunity to explore a subject matter that you're passionate about. I also loved the Leeds University Union, there was always so much going on; during exam season the University teamed up with a guide dog charity which meant students could go along and 'de-stress' by hanging out with dogs. And Old Bar was the best place ever. 

What are you planning to do once you graduate?

At the moment I am in a full time job trying to save up money so I can go travelling. Then, ultimately, I would love to start working as a travel photographer.
