I am currently 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...

distance of university to halls, the locals

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 campus...

can'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...

The city. Good reputation.

The 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...

“ugrad days”

published 10/08/2000

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...

You may just have to leave home!!

Choosing to study at Leicester University was definately one of my greatest decisions ever. I was unsure of where to go, and even whether i wanted to go, i went to 6 universities in all and Leicester stood out like a Ferrari in a fleet of Fiestas. The Halls of residence are set in lovely...

I just finished my one year Master course in University of Leicester. I chose University of Leicester as its good research and teaching reputation. It is now ranked in the UK's top twenty universities. It is famous for researching on Engineering, Physics, Medical and Genetics. I like this...

Amazing halls

Old lecture theatres.

I went to the University of Leicester last year. I studied Beng Electronic and Electrical Engineering. The Gilbert Murray hall was my hall of resisdence. This hall was one of the last to be part of the university's upgrade program. This didn't bother me however as the hall was a no smoking hall...

“Leicester's Social Life”

published 11/04/2001

Great atmos, reasonably priced accomodation

Lack of decent nightclubs

Three years at Leicester has flown by (mostly in a haze of beers!). I'm certainly going to miss the place when I enter the 'real world' this summer. As a university town, Leicester is ideal. Large enough to offer lots to do, yet retaining a small-town atmosphere (You'll always bump into friends...

Quality through and through

Leave your car at home!

Being a bit of a king of univeristies having dropped out twice I finally settled on Leicester to study archaeology and was the best decsion I could have made. The university is excellently postioned just outside of the city centre and is surrounded by the beautifully green Victoria Park, which...

Good courses, good student life

Bad food in halls

I graduated from Leicester 4 years ago and I'm still there (Leicester not the uni). The 3 years I spent at Leicester Uni were the best of my life. I studied Physcology and although I didn't pick the uni becuase of its reputation as a centre of excellence for this course, it quickly became aparent...

Good nite life, good economics dept

crap halls

From an acedemic point of view I can only really comment on the Economic department as I am a second year studying Business Economics BA. The department is very good, nice buildings, good lectures and lecturers. We also were rated 24/24 for teaching in the economics department a few weeks ago...

Nice environment

I coundn't think of one

I graduated from University Of leicester in 1997. Since then, whenever I look back into my life in that univeristy, it brings me back the good memory. At present I am doing my Master in University Of Strathclyde. If I have to make a comparison, I would say that Univeristy Of Leicester is the best...

Nice area, nice people, loads to do.

Having work interupt your drinking.

Initially Leicester was my insurance place, but now I am glad that fate's hand steered me towards this uniquie part of England. On arriving at Leicester you will be struck the fact that it doesn't live up to the stereotypes set by its Midlands neighbours such as Birmingham, Wolverhampton and...
