I'm currently going into my second year at Leicester and I don't want to leave. Everything from the people, to the library to the staff to the facilities are perfect.

Q
A 1-year M.Sc. degree earned in UK is not equivalent to an M.Sc. degree earned in India, where it is of 2 years duration. But, Leicester's 'M.Sc. with Industry' degree takes 2 years to complete. Is it equivalent to M.Sc. degree in India then?

The campus is big enough to feel like a University campus but small enough for everything close by. The internet is outstanding as you will be connected anywhere you are. The lecture theatres could do with a bit of upgrading but perform well all throughout. The services are good as well.

Overall, I've had a fantastic time at the University of Leicester. It's great for sport and has a huge choice of societies to join. The staff at the library and the Career Development Service have also been consistently helpful and approachable. I can't recommend UOL highly enough.

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!

I joined the University of Leicester Frisbee Society years back, and found it to be the best hub for fun sport as well as offering a fantastic social setting to new students. As a connoisseur of clubs, I would highly recommend. 10/10

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.

Good student union area and library is open 24/7 but there is a lack of proper meal facility since they closed the Chi restaurant in the early evenings so apart from over priced snacks and salads in the library cafe and Delicious shop, there's no facility to get a proper evening meal on campus anymore.

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. Such disappointment and a waste of money!!!!

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!

What's great about the uni is how compact it is and how easy it is to get around. Being such a compact campus means you don't have to run from lecture to lecture. There is a variety of amenities of campus which cater to all your needs. There are plenty of food options. The internet is good around campus. The library is also a great place as it is open almost 24/7 and had plenty of study spaces that suit all of your needs.

There's always stuff going on around campus, something for everyone. The library is really modern and nice and is open 24/7 during the week but it's packed during exams which is a downfall. The student union is also really modern, there's lots of comfy seating and they've got a few food outlets including starbucks and a shop.

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.

Leicester was a great University to attend for those who are academically minded. The facilities are above standard and so are the staff, however you have to really explore the Uni and put the effort in also. Make sure you are making the most of your experience there by talking to your lecturers about your work, using the library and trying out societies. The city is just the right size to get to know and has enough going on to the explore. Although the student union really provides great nights out such as Shabang, Let's Disko, it's also acceptable to explore the bars in the city and not get stuck in the same routine of Shabang Friday nights! Aslong and you put in the hard work and balance that work with activities, Leicester was a fantastic Uni to go to.

While the campus is fairly unattractive, all of the facilities you need are there within a 10 minute walk max. Library is fantastic. Lots of societies on offer. Gym and swimming pool on site. Accomodation offered is fantastic quality, however, very pricey (and getting more expensive every year). Oadby is a wonderful place to live...really beautiful and green with a great atmosphere. Never had any problems while in Oadby. On campus plenty of food outlets and choice (could maybe do with 1 more cafe on the other side of campus for when the SU gets really busy), however prices are very expensive! Wouldn't reccomend regularly eating or drinking on campus for this reason...bring a flask and a packed lunch!

The University of Leicester to me has given me a great experience. The support I have recieved during my first year has been unfaultable. The facilities on campus, such as the library are impeccable and ultra modern. Although the campus price of food is overpriced, I do believe that if this is something we put forward to our union, they would investigate it. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year and cannot wait to get back!

The atmosphere on campus (and in the city) is really vibrant and friendly - there is always something going on and I never get bored! The gym facilities, which have recently been renovated are excellent. Whilst the student union looks nice, they don't really have a lot on other than your generic student nights, but it is an O2 academy, so there are lots of gigs! The city itself is quite cheap to live in and plenty of stuff to do!

Students union is overpriced food and always packed. not fair given that nowhere else is near it. 9k fees and we still have today through the nose for printing. Disgusting.

Great support for looking at jobs after university. Helped work on my CV, had workshops for psychometric tests, had practise interviews and even practise assessment Centres. This all allowed me to secure my internship at an investment company.

Amazing campus set in the heart of Leicester, only 10minute walk from town and right next to Vicky park which is perfect in the summer to go chill out in. Being in the midlands the rent is a lot cheaper than what you'd pay down south and it's generally easy to find accommodation within a 5/10minute walk from uni, no bus passes needed! I've always found Leicester to be a friendly, socialable uni with plenty of societies, nightlife and sports to offer - always find something you're interested in! I couldn't be happier anywhere else.

Facilities great (abet engineering is average). Clubs are great over 200. Student Union is ok. The opening hours are a bit limited, the shops a little expensive, and you can't get hot food past 4pm. Careers are helpful, can be a bit annoying when they keep contacting you, but they mean well.
