My teachers at Leicester were incredible, offering a really dynamic, interesting course with loads of content, contact hours and plenty of opportunity to talk to them about any problems or concerns I had. They seriously made the uni experience so much easier for me! The uni itself is great too – the halls were really high quality, the Union has a load of events on as well as cheap coffee and a great place to hang out with your mates. The whole campus is really inviting and comfy, and everyone here was friendly and welcoming! I loved it here!

    So far my experience at Leicester has been amazing! However, I gave it a 4 due to the standard of accommodation in first year and the lack of interest from the uni to sort it out.

    Overall Leicester Uni will be what you choose to make of it. If you come here and engage in all the activities that are going on and participate in student life then you won't regret your decision to come here.
