University of Leicester
7.4 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 147 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"There are hundreds of societies to join and a lot of them are background focused so there is definitely something for everyone based on their individuality. Then there are also hobby, interest, sport and academic based societies, so I would say the university does quite a lot to cater for everyone. This is important as Leicester is now the most multi-cultural city in the UK outside of London, which is definitely reflected in the university."
