It provides a smooth transition to Higher Education, and allows you to develop the skills and knowledge required to succeed at university.

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!
I really love this university - I'm very comfortable while I'm there and I've made a lot of friends through university societies. The teaching is good - largely because you can tell everyone genuinely cares about what they're teaching you, and this is also shown with the feedback you're given. I also think Leicester is a good town to be at uni at in general - it's cheap, constantly improving, and pretty (especially the student areas).
