It's good (apparantly). Not sure about De Montford though!
How about the city in general? Coming from London I don't think I'd be happy somewhere "country-ish" (sorry I could think of a better word!)
Well I had Leicester as my back up. The campus is nice and the surrounding area is also nice. From what I can remember the city centre wasn't very far away either and no Leicester is not countryish. I was only put of in the end because of the lack of computing facilities (which is very important when studying Computer Science) compared to other universities (though it may be a bit unfair since I'm comparing it to Birmingham where they have just spent millions on a new computer science building). The university though is generaly very well respected and they have a good reputation for reaserch.
Thanks for the info guys.. I visited it and I was pretty impressed, especially with the campus. Apparently they've just built a new computer suite on there, though I didn't get to see it. Still trying to decide whether to go or not..
