Super nice and friendly. Course is great and content is interesting. Student union is super friendly and homely


Really enjoyed myself, will be sad to leave. I really enjoy my course and the content and the lecturers are all really friendly. Made lots of friends and just overall have had a wonderful few years here!” “Very educational and enjoyable experience.” “So far so good, staff and lectures are friendly. People around are also great, helpful and kind.” University of Leicester (according to league tables and reviews) is a very good University, currently a top 30 University in the UK. We love Leicester. The uni is right next to a lovely residential area called Clarendon Park, very much like The King's Road but decades ago. Very friendly people and lots of little terraced houses with twinkly lights at Christmas.The uni seems very good too although my son ended up elsewhere.Hope this helps
