Student Profile(s)

Rosalía Varela-Portas

I chose Leeds as I did my year abroad at the University of Leeds and I loved it, so I decided to come back for my Masters.

The best aspect of studying my course was I liked the fact that you could choose the subjects you wanted to do. I wanted to do a mix of applied and pure mathematics courses, so MSc Mathematics at the University of Leeds was perfect. Leeds is also a great city, I come from Madrid, so Leeds felt smaller but still had loads of choices and activities to do in your free time. I think that’s why I like it. I would say the student life at Leeds is amazing. It doesn’t matter what your hobbies are or what type of person you are, you will always find your place and enjoy your time. I have made loads of friends and found most of the activities I like to do so I never get bored.

The course has definitely given me confidence for the future and made me realise that anything can be enjoyable if you have the right attitude. Who knows if maybe someday I will use my master’s to get into a PhD or find a job in a company.
