I have loved the University this far as a postgraduate student. My timetable is really flexible which allows time for assignments, group work etc. The teaching is also really involving and the lecturers are in touch with students. The lecturers are funny too! (could be specific to my course)
There is also easy access to all study materials. the school has many places to snack/eat in most buildings.
I attended an open day, and the campus was wonderful. The economics department was great, offering an enriching experience. The professors were knowledgeable and approachable, and the facilities were top-notch. I left feeling excited about the academic journey ahead!View more

After moving away to the University of Leicester last September, I can confidently say that I have made the right decision for the progression of my learning and future career.
As a Business Management student, I was initially enticed by the specialist Business school- Brookfield, which is a beautifully modern building standing outside of the general university campus. In my first year I have become aware of many different people that I can contact for support including module leaders, seminar tutors and personal tutors, all of which are more than happy to help in any way they can.
Personally, I saw moving to university as quite a daunting experience as there is a huge emphasis put on the need for independence however I was soon put at ease by all of the different support systems within the university. During the start of my studies there was definitely a big focus on allowing new students to engage with their new surroundings, become familiar with their new routines and to develop connections with their fellow classmates. Tutors treat you with a great amount of respect, making communication easy and effective to ensure any questions or worries don’t get overlooked.
For these reasons I would definitely recommend both my chosen university and the course I am studying and I believe that there will be many more routes of support that I will uncover during the following years of my degree.View more
I believe that the University of Leicester is an inclusive and reputable institution. It is well known for high-quality teaching and research.
As a constant user of the campus itself, it is well-equipped as it includes specialised laboratories, a big library, computer rooms and student support services. Leicester itself is a vibrant city and has a diverse nightlife, suitable for everyone. I personally enjoy going out to do different activities, trying new things and letting loose from time to time.
However, as expected, the University also has minor flaws. One thing I dislike about the campus is that it can be quite intimidating ad many of the buildings are spread out and disjointed and I sometimes find it difficult to navigate the different buildings. Furthermore, another thing I experienced which I disliked was the limited accommodation availability.
Despite these flaws, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the University of Leicester and would definitely recommend it to other students that are starting University.
it is a good university giving many opportunities. it supports students well and the campus is great though smaller than other universities. the campus buildings are sometimes far from each other such as brookfield from main campus.View more
My opinion is that it is a decent university. It’s not the highest in the rankings but I had a really good experience there. The student support in terms of mitigating circumstances could be improved to allow more leniency for students. The best part for me was the sports societies and socials on Wednesday nights.View more
