Leicester University

Community Quote

I have just finished my 'freshers' year at the university of Leicester; and i have to say it has been the best year of my life. The university campus is set about a mile or so out of town, next to Victoria Park and the nearby shopping area of Queen Road. I would say it is a medium sized ... Read review

University of Leicester 2007

AdvantagesFriendly people, laid back attitude, academic, social scene

Disadvantagesdistance of university to halls, the locals

"...the anual varsity matches between Leicester univerity and the polytechnic De Montfort. These matches are great to go to as the rivalry is very intense, and often amusing. Leicester student's union is very popular with its students and recently it has seen acts such as the Arctic Monkeys perform.The two big union nights are the cheese infested Red Leicester which plays a huge range of songs from the 90's, as well as your indie and drum and bass ..."

Down memory lane - work, what work??!!

AdvantagesFantastic social life within halls, friendly small campus

Disadvantagescan't think of any, but I'm biased!!

"I graduated from Leicester University in 1996, a while ago now, but this was my experience: I initially visited a handful of universities and remember instantly 'knowing' that Leicester was for me, quite simply because I felt comfortable there. Other big city universities felt 'edgier' and intimidating to me, although I know probably the greater majority of people would find them appealing. I just remember sitting in the coffee shop chomping on ..." Read review

The best university in the world



"...in my finaly year at leicester to study a BA in archaeology, and i am having the time of my life. The university is placed next to Victoria park and it is away from the city centre, but only 10mins walking distance. The Union is very good, these is always something happening. The staff are pretty helpful too. The accommodation is good, although I have personally only stayed in the self-catered accommodation. The city since I arrived three years ..." Read review

A great university, with a brill social life.

AdvantagesThe city. Good reputation.

DisadvantagesThe library could be better equipped.

"I graduated from Leicester in 1998, studying English and went on to do a PGCE there. I still live in Leicester now - so it can't be all that bad. I have to say that all the university reviews are bound to be really biased, as everyone who writes them is bound to be a fan of a particular uni, and unless they have done multiple degrees, is likely to know only one really well. Unfortunately, I am no exception. I went to Leicester as the result ..." Read review

ugrad days



"I graduated from Leicester University just over a year ago after completing a four year physics course. I may have complained about the course a fair bit whilst there but now I don't regret a thing. I may be biased, but I cannot think of anywhere else that I would rather have spent my undergraduate years. I picked Leicester for its reputation in my chosen field of study as well as its location, pretty easy to get to from anywhere in the UK and vice ..." Read review
