University of Leicester


What are the worst things about studying at your university?


"There aren't that many places to work and eat since eating is prohibited in the library and the SU gets filled quite quickly. The food is quite expensive and I find the range a bit limited."
"It is often hard to get help when you need it. The student welfare service can be really hard to get a response from, which dissuades students from using it. There aren't many club or involvement opportunities for one-year masters students."
"There is hardly ever a seminar where you can discuss the work more in depth. There's insufficient support for career development in terms of helping all students with internships or work experience in related fields."
"I feel as though there should be more exam help and revision lectures during the exam period."
"The uni seems to be a bit last minute in some respects, such as giving out timetables. In other universities students know their timetables weeks before the start of term."
"The one thing that I can think of is better food options for vegetarians and vegans on campus."
"First-year students are notified late about coming changes and the electronic timetable has a lot of mistakes."
"The places to eat on campus can be expensive, as is the gym membership."
"There can occasionally be a lack of feedback given in response to pieces of work submitted."
"The cost of food, drinks and supplies from the campus shops is really high, which is disappointing and not what you would expect from an SU."


"They don't record all lectures."
"Student union nights, too expensive and it's always the same."
"Student village is a bit far from the main campus, and there often aren't enough buses during busy times."
"No printers on campus so you have to go all the way into the uni or buy your own printer to be able to print."
"Sometimes the staff aren't as helpful as they could be. Food on campus is expensive, as is the gym. There's a lack of computers in the library."
"There is never enough computer space in the library, it's always full."
"First year halls are quite far away from campus, and the bus pass is expensive."
"I am doing a joint honours degree, I've found there has been poor communication between departments in the past."
"Having to take the bus every morning from Oadby. Oadby is lovely but its too far away and many students fail to attend lectures because of this. I wish I didn't live in halls, but it hasn't been too bad."
"I'm used to living in London and Leicester is a bit small. The university is also quite small."
