Leeds is a major city in Yorkshire, northern England, just over two hours from London by train. The city is renowned for sports, music and its cultural attractions, including museums, nightlife and shopping. It has been voted as one of the top three places to shop in the UK by numerous independent surveys, and offers a huge range of shops and stores to suit all tastes.

I had a very great experience right from the start to finish; All the staff were really great and very helpful. I recommend SI-UK for all students who are planning to study in the UK.
