Santa, Latvia

What made you choose Yorkshire as the place to study in the UK?

It was a very spontaneous decision that wasn't based on anything.


What is the best thing about studying in Yorkshire?

Yorkshire is almost in the middle of the England. Just a few hours journey from Manchester, Birmingham, London etc. 


What did you know about Yorkshire before you arrived?

I didn't know anything. I knew the Arctic Monkeys come from Sheffield, but only because I am a big music fan.


What is the biggest difference between Yorkshire and your home?

Nature. It is not only Yorkshire, but England in general. Latvia is greener and has more parks in its towns, and the food of course.


What will you remember most about Yorkshire?

Mostly good emotions about the university experience.
