    Welcome to the University of Leicester Applicants thread!

    Hi everyone :wavey:

    This thread is for anyone considering applying, or has applied, to UoL for the 2018 entry. You can use this thread to connect with other applicants, and talk about courses, the city and the uni.

    I studied at Leicester from 2011-2014, then did my MA there the following year. I'll be happy to answer any general questions, but might struggle with anything specific as it has been 6 years since my freshers!

    To get things started, why don't you fill out the following:

    Name:
    Location:
    Course:
    GCSEs:
    AS:
    A2 subjects:
    A2 (predictions or achieved):
    Applying anywhere else?

    Here's mine...

    Name: Fox Corner :cool:
    Location: South East
    Course: English Literature
    GCSEs: 9 A-C
    AS: can't remember :rofl:
    A2 subjects: English Lit, Law, Psychology, English Language (AS)
    A2 (predictions or achieved): AAB A
    Applying anywhere else?I also applied to Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Oxford Brookes

    Interesting Facts about UoL
    • We won the first ever University Challenge in 1963
    • David and Richard Attenborough's dad was the Principal of the University College from 1932-1951. The Attenborough's lived on campus (in what is now the Maths Building) and both brothers were made Distinguished Honorary Fellows of the University in 2006.
    • UoL discovered and exhumed the body of Richard III in 2012, after discovering it in a car park in the city.
    • The techniques used in genetic fingerprinting were invented and developed at UoL in 1984 by Sir Alec Jeffreys.
    • We were chosen by the United Nations as one of only 10 Universities in the world to take part in the HeForShe campaign.

    GOT OFFERS FROM ALL!!!!! BUT I'VE AN UNCONDITIONAL FROM LEICESTER!!! WTAF!
    Manchester is going to be my firm choice though because it's of graduate prospects etc. (Also Russell group for law is apparently the best) but my insurance was going to be Liverpool before as I got offered a place for ABB but now I'm not too sure. Because my Leicester offer is unconditional even if it is my insurance. But not too sure whether I should swap Liverpool for Leicester...any help???
