MSc Health Informatics with Data Science

Hello! I’m Lynette, from India. I’m currently pursuing a master’s in Health Data Science at the University of Leeds. The university is part of the Russell Group and has a strong focus on research, which is why I chose to come here. The academic atmosphere is remarkably nurturing and conducive to student growth. There is a lot of support provided academically, from my parent school as well as the University's libraries, in the form of skills workshops and talks, which has been helpful in developing my academic writing skills. Also, the Careers Centre on campus has been really helpful in providing guidance for interviews and CV prep.

My experience at this institution has been truly rewarding so far.

Every week, the University of Leeds hosts the Global Café in Leeds University Union (LUU), where students can socialize, engage in conversations, and enjoy complimentary hot drink. This has been a nice way to meet people from different cultural backgrounds and make new friends. Leeds is a very cosmopolitan city, there is a diverse student community, and the people here are super friendly and welcoming. The city centre has plenty of restaurant choices and is my go-to for when I’m craving Indian food.

The university goes the extra mile to ensure international students feel welcomed and integrated.

There’s plenty to do in your free time, I especially like the diverse and vast number of clubs and societies, of which the University has over 300. I enjoy reading and art, so having a community to engage in your hobbies really makes it more fun. There are also programs like the Get Out, Get Active scheme, which provides guided walks to nearby places, like Ilkley Moor or the coastal town of Whitby. As someone who enjoys hiking and loves to explore new places, this is the best way to explore Yorkshire. Cultural societies, like the Indian Student Association, organise celebrations for major festivals such as Diwali and Holi. This sense of cultural connection has made celebrating these festivals away from home a more heart-warming experience.

I’m glad that I chose to come to Leeds, so if you have any questions about the university or student life in Leeds, feel free to reach out to me by UniBuddy or via email,
