    Hey Elsa,

    The Politics and International course is a 3 year course with an optional year aboard in USA/Canada or Europe. You will have a range of core and optional modules- the list can be found on our website https://le.ac.uk/courses/politics-an...l-relations-ba . The department is internationally recognised for the quality of research, particularly in areas such as animal rights, ethics, counter terrorism, intelligence and security to name a few.

    Leicester is very multicultural city and the university reflects that. The University of Leicester has a African and Caribbean society that students can join and meet others students of different cultures. The society host regular meet ups and events, so you have a chance to socialise with them. I joined the society in my first year and loved the opportunity to make new friends with the termly raves they hosted, I also joined their netball team and we got to play against other university's African and Caribbean societies. There is a Leicester African/Caribbean 2017 Applicant thread if you would like to chat to other students applying to Leicester

    I would definitely say that Leicester is a true student city for nightlife. The Student Unions' host regular student nights at the 02 academy and Republic. There are other clubs and bars in the city centre, so there is really something to do every night, whether it's clubbing or having a meal with your friends. I have attached the link to our website, so that you can read more into the student life in Leicester- https://le.ac.uk/student-life/city

    For accommodation, we have City Living Accommodation and Oadby Student Village. Both are very popular for first year students.

    Oadby Student Village is about a 20 minute drive from campus. Oadby has a really nice student atmosphere and a lot of greenery space, I happened to live there in my first year (John Foster- Pavilions) and I absolutely enjoyed my time there. Oadby has both Self-catered and Catered accommodation.

    City Living accommodation is a lot closer to Campus, with most of the accommodations being less than a 10 minute walk from campus (with the exception of Mary Gee). City Living is also a lot closer to the City Centre and all the accommodation on this site is self catered.

    When it comes to whether you live in university accommodation or private accommodation, it really depends on what you are looking for. Both accommodation sites have a variety of room types and prices. If you opt for private accommodation, the university has its own estate agents called SULETS or you can go for a private landlord/estate agent and find a pretty good deal. In recent survey done by HSBC, Leicester was voted he cheapest place to live for students. You can see the stats here- file:///Z:/Downloads/140814-student-cost-of-living.pdf

    I have also provided the link to information about private and university accommodation-https://le.ac.uk/student-life/undergraduates/accommodation
    if you look at the university's accommodation website you can see 360 degrees view of our room types.

    Sorry for the really long post.
    I hope this helps, if you have any more questions feel free to quote me
