University of Leicester
What are the best things about studying at your university?
"The course structure and the content are good. The university provides many opportunities for volunteering, as well as other extracurricular activities."
"There's great access to resources and engaging teaching backed up by the use of Panopto recordings. There's feedback given on practice exam papers."
"The university has a big campus with a varied selection of all kinds of shops for both academic and social purposes. It is a very diverse city, which the university capitalises on by offering each and every student continuous opportunities to expand."
"I enjoy the small campus and friendly feel. I loved the student accommodation in my first year and the external accommodation is incredibly cheap for your second and third years. Living in the student area of Leicester is very pleasant and convenient. My course offers several field trips, which I have greatly enjoyed and found interesting and useful."
"The campus is small so it's easy to travel between buildings. The teachers are friendly and cooperative."
"There is a lot on offer including societies and events etc. We have plenty of workshops on developing skills and careers talks etc as well. The uni halls are good (from what I've seen) and there is plenty of choice for places to eat/get food from on campus."
"Leicester is a multicultural city with lots to do, and our campus is very easy to get around as it isn't too big."
"Supportive academic department, brilliant student welfare team, fantastic range of clubs/societies."
"Tutors are very helpful and quick in answering our queries, as are the distance learning team. The entire staff at the University of Leicester are very helpful and considerate in times of difficulties."
"Tutors are very passionate about their work and go the extra mile in helping us."
"All my lectures are recorded, even if I miss uni I can listen to the recordings as much as I need when at home."
"High levels of teaching and very good reputation. Good field trips and fantastic societies."
"The university offers a brilliant social scene, especially as the Leicester O2 academy is situated on campus. This venue and tons of others in Leicester hold regular student nights with really good drink prices. I also received two scholarships upon being granted my place at the university. One of them is for hitting good grades during level three and reduces my tuition fee, the other is a lump sum per year based on my household income. As I study law, it's great knowing Leicester have one of the UK's leading law schools, with excellent tutors and academic support available. Student accommodation in Oadby student village is also amazing it puts most first year students together and the residential teams put loads of events on weekly throughout the year, so there are a bunch of things to get involved in as well as some top study facilities. Leicester is one of the top unis for research and discovery as well, which is really well reflected in the teaching and events held at the university."
"It's ideally located for travel to London and around the UK. 24 hour university library. Small campus so very easy to familiarise yourself with it and very easy to make friends. Very good social life as the city is very lively. O2 academy on campus makes for good nights out and attracts big music artists."
"The diversity of the students attending. I have made long term contacts with people from all over the world."
"The staff want you to do well and offer all the help you need to do so. The small campus means you can never get from one lecture to the next without bumping into someone you know. 'Let's Disko' at the students union is always a great night out."
