I am working on my UCAS application, planning to apply for a BA in Politics and International Relations. Is anyone studying there currently or studied there that could tell me how it is? Is it a good uni?
Thank you

I applied for International Relations and got my offer a few weeks ago! It's a really good uni from what I have heard. What other uni's are you applying to?

I'm a current politics student (first year) and the course, on the whole, is really interesting

Oh that is good to know! What kind of resources do you have to have such as books and do you spend a lot on them?

Have you/are you going to visit Leicester? When applying to any university you need to work out what you want from university and surrounding area beyond academics. Everyone's different. Personally I wasn't all that keen on Leicester but that's because I don't think it was a good fit for me. Plenty of other people seemed to like it fine but I would have preferred to be elsewhere.

First term there were two books which cost £50, this term there is one which is about £30. This might seem like quite a bit, but compared to most of the other courses it's actually not that bad. A lot of the texts are available on-line which is really helpful.

Very good University.
Could you please explain why it's very good?
I can't afford to go on n open day because the train tickets cost me like 90 quid to go down to Leicester.

How is Leicester area wise? I am quite worried because I heard from some people that it's a "shtihole"?

I honestly don't know to be honest, sorry.

All I know is University of Leicester (according to league tables and reviews) is a very good University, currently a top 30 University in the UK.

I have also heard Leicester is a **** hole, but I wouldn't let that impact you choosing your University. It has a good night life, if that's your thing, and very safe areas. There's also a lot to do in it, it's a large city.

Purely anecdotal, that could happen to anyone. The graduate prospects at Leicester in general are great.

We love Leicester. The uni is right next to a lovely residential area called Clarendon Park, very much like The King's Road but decades ago. Very friendly people and lots of little terraced houses with twinkly lights at Christmas.The uni seems very good too although my son ended up elsewhere.Hope this helps

This doesn't help since a) the thread is 2 years old and b) considering you said your son actually left this specific uni, isn't a vote of confidence when answering the question "is uni of Leicester a good uni?" looool!
