Academic freedom nonexistent. They force you to do things they are comfortable and familiar with. Teachers can’t speak English well. Their level of experience is very poor. I can definitely teach better than my tutors. 2 out of 5 stars for teachers.

SU doesn't seem to achieve much except putting on lots of mandatory e-learning for societies that can be quite patronising... rest of the university is fine, societies aren't very accessible for those with placements as part of their degree as events take place in the daytime or early evenings.

Just like any other uni, same campus vibe, same university webiste template, same student union, same annoying jargon in their emails. As usual there are some great lecturers and some horrible ones. Tends to accept anything that moves and has £9250 on clearing. Most of the people and I got with significantly less than the requirement. If you are not into accomodation you have to pay extra for gym, etc. The food on campus is very overpriced. The uni also charges money to deliver (as there is no graduation ceremony this year) the dimplomas with dhl or if you are overseas. And other pety stuff. Attendance was mandotory and its tracked via self scanning however good thing is it is not inforced so you can give the card to someone to scan you once in awhile. Most modules will likely have the lecture notes uploaded on blackboard. As most other unis it pretends to be very woke. In reality its just a company and will not hesitate to fire its staff or fck over its students if it means profit

Unfortunately this university appears to be more concerned with profits and quickly awarding degrees than actual education and developing the skills of its students. This very much appears to be an institutionalized problem as most staff are helpful and keen on teaching, but are not given the proper means and opportunities by the university management.

The campus was a building site for the entire duration of my study. The prices of food and beverages continued to climb while the quality dropped as did the service hours. They also got rid of beer on tap. The clubs and societies are alright but are hampered at every turn by the crushing weight of the SU. The SU seems to forcefully insert itself into ever aspect of societies, demanding endless forms which hamper a societies ability to run social events. Rather than focus on improving the student experience, the SU instead spends its time chasing the ill-informed political ideals of the executive officers (which often have nothing to do with student issues) with no real ability for students to voice their dissent.

The campus is quite small, so there aren't that many spaces to socialise/study so it can become quite monotonous. The SU is nice, but half of it has been under construction for over a year and there isn't much variety in terms of food.

It good but still need to improve, especially in the school of business, it seems been isolated from this school and set up for Chinese students. The need to invest more capital in the business school includes the learning team and the building.

My experience has been mostly based on sport (and occasionally my degree). Joining Team Leicester as part of lacrosse was the best thing I could have done and has made my university experience. There are loads of sports clubs to choose from so finding something you’re interested in is easy and in my experience all the clubs are so welcoming and friendly. The geography department has also been great through my degree and the tutor system has helped me through some difficult times. Overall I am thrilled that I came to Leicester and I am very sad to be leaving.

As an ERASMUS student coming from Spain (Salamanca University), my point of view is totally different from a local student, but it is important to bear in mind. At the beginning, the University of Leicester seems a paradise for students, providing careers service & support, clubs and sports societies and even University cares about your mental health! Obviously all of that kind of things are a pure facade: they just care about earning more and more money. It is not that bad, but my own impression is that things are not as they seem to be.

In the beginning, the University was pictured as a perfect place where they cared about students, their mental health and the fact that they didn' have any issue, but this was at the beginning. The facade of a university concerned about their students is just that, a facade. A colleague of mine was assaulted and the university did nothing about it, just make her feel worse about what happened and forcing her to move from the accommodatio she was living at while the guy who assaulted her continued living in the same place without any reprisals. So if the university claims that ar going to be on the side of the people forced or assaulted there is no point why my friend has to carry all the weight of the aggression. This guy was not noticed, he was not fined or expelled after BREAKING HIS FLATMATE ARM. She had to deal with stress, anxiety, and fear of crossing paths with him, while he was totally calm about it because the University proved that they were not going to do anything about it.

Had a wonderful experience here, the people working at UoL are always happy to help or look for solutions for any problem you may have. There's always room for improvement but I think that they take students criticisms constructively and work on making the experience here better.

Buildings are mostly great, some old theatres that could use updating. Too much money is spent on improving buildings that are fine, instead of investing in welfare or buildings that need renovating. University and SU don't work well together - this can lead to a lot of red tape and makes running societies quite hard. Societies can be lacking but this is usually due to bad organisation on the SU's behalf rather than the society themselves. The SU is slowly improving. Very very good individual staff members who really care about their students and their subjects. Completely useless senior management team who care more about lining their pockets than looking after their students and staff. Careers are useless for humanities subjects but great for business/science people. WiFi's fine: can dip in and out sometimes. Gym's way too expensive as an upfront cost. Lots of opportunities available (activities in halls/careers sessions/interesting extracurriculars) but these have to be sought out

Do not live in student halls in Oadby. Speaking of experience. There is cheaper, far better quality accommodation(I cannot exaggerate this enough) closer to the university in the city. You make friends just as you would in halls if you were concerned about the social aspect.

Student's Union and the University don't work well together. No social care in a timely manner, 6month waiting times when I had a crisis and needed help and no personal tutor who cared although I know others were lucky enough to have a good one. A split in excellent lecturers who care about their students and feedback and bad ones who are only there for research and who see student's feedback as irrelevant and carry on regardless (Engineering Department)

Lonely times, if you like r&b music you’re in for a treat if not you’ll find yourself in mosh every night it’s on. The library is really small and there’s never any computers. The gym is nice but super expensive. Society wise watch out for any sports unless you fit in you won’t be accepted. Lgbt society is pure trash, it’s badly organised and they never have any events.

No pastoral support, no guidance for freshers, the English course is particular is completely lacking in modern texts. First year was a lonely time with no support from the university or anyone checking you aren’t dead in your halls. I ended up having a really good experience because I got lucky and met nice people in my course. As for the societies lgbt committee was badly organised and only had one event a decade, rugby was clicky and very unfriendly to new comers. All in all a good experience but there are definitely friendlier universities with better mental health support and a wider network of help for students

Such an amazing vibe on campus- has exactly what I would expect from a university. The facilities are state of the art and deserves 5*. Sadly the societies need a lot of work, I paid £5 membership for the history society but have had nothing all year from them- no activities/emails. This can’t be more than 1* as a result. The union is great and can easily be reached and their outreach is superb. The careers service is very much similar to this in terms of contact with students. The WiFi is good and reaches all areas, it’s free so I can’t complain too much but it can dip and in and out occasionally and doesn’t always run very quickly when I need it to.

Just finishing first year and I have had a great time at Leicester. Perhaps I haven't made the most of what is on offer here outside my course, but the extra-curricular stuff is plentiful for anyone that cares about that sort of thing. Computer Science at the uni is good and I have few issues with the course, and with the new building onto the Students Union, we're getting new labs for next year which is great. The campus is seeing significant improvements leading up to its Centenary in 2021!

I have really enjoyed my time at Leicester University and will be sad to leave. I was drawn to Leicester on the open day because of the happy and welcoming vibe on campus -and this has continued throughout the years. I found the campus to be the perfect size - not too big or to small, and is easy to navigate. There are also plenty of food options and places to sit on campus for lunch - the campus even backs onto Victoria park which is nice to sit in during breaks in the summer! In terms of societies and clubs, it seems that Leicester has something for everybody - sports, courses or something different! Leicesters Career Developmental service is also worth mentioning as I have already found it so useful but I know when I enter my final year I will use it even more. They offer so much support! Leicester isn't the most exciting city itself, but the university is brilliant and I would reccommend it to anybody!

Keeps spending money on vanity projects, like the new medicine building and the proposed Percy Gee extenstion. However the majority of buildings (Attenbourgh, Charles Wilson, AHAA, Maurice Shock) are in need of serious updating and repair. They need to focus on what they already have rather than new shiny places. They are constantly cutting back on staff and merging departments (like History, Politics and International Relations) which causes problems for students and staff. They do not make any attempt to make courses worth the money for Arts and Humanities students. Since I started in 2014 the uni has gone noticeably downhill. The people at the top have forgotten about the needs and expectations of students at the bottom, which is showing in overall results and league tables. The Careers service is a rare gem of this uni. The staff there are genuinely helpful and the advice given is top quality. No query is too large or small. They helped immensely with my next step.

University of Leicester has one of the most ridiculous rules and regulations where any modules that are not passed they won't allow you to roll it onto the next academic year. Instead they take you out from the year so that you could pass that year. For my course the lecturers and tutors are good for nothing! They will never help you in any way instead you have to refer back to their lecture notes that does not explain everything.

Very disappointed in how the learning by distance(archaeology department) is being handled. Based on this I would not encourage anyone to enter your institution. Very hard to get in touch with any of the administration in a call to try and work out any misunderstanding and when you complain they simply maybe you should withdraw if you are not satisfied.

Everything is great from the number of places you can study in the library to the resources (although sometimes it can take very long to get material for research, such as a dissertation - still waiting even though I already had to submit my dissertation). The one thing that I don't like is how cold it is. In winter or spring, sitting by the windows is absolutely a terror, especially if you need to do so for an entire day while doing uni work. It can get very cold in the computer rooms as well. Please do something about that!

They are a huge range of clubs and societies to get involved in away from the traditional sports clubs. The union has an amazing space for relaxing in whilst at university complete with many places to eat a drink (Starbucks being the main attraction). The campus itself is very friendly and small enough so you always bump into someone you know. Great atmosphere all round.

Student union is nothing special. Usually crowded and difficult to find seats. Good library and gym

Would've been better if we had a food shop like tesco, rather than cafes that charge you a lot, but overall you can get anything on campus if you're ready to pay a littleextra

Campus is so small which makes it so easy to get to everything. I can run to whatever building I want and everything is so easily accessible.
