Leicester is an excellent university, great for my course, and I love the city! I especially love the student support available, specifically with disabilities, as this affects me personally, the student support team are fast to respond, friendly, and incredibly helpful, offering the best quality of support. Would highly recommend this uni.
The course is good, intense, but good. Most all of my lecturers have been great, keeping interest and explain content in a clear, concise manner
Lasdun is the cheapest accommodation you can get, and i think its incredible value for money. The student village is quite far from the uni, however a free shuttle bus does run Monday through Saturday!
The wifi in my room always goes off so I would say this aspect is not worth the value of money I pay.
I really like the campus uni and the student support is great. I love my course and the lectures are really helpful.
The lecturers are interested in the lecture themselves and you can tell that they’re passionate about what they’re presenting
The wifi can be quite slow but I love where I live
Very close to town, really good transport links via train station. The societies are really good and have allowed me to take part in multiple sports and hobbies I've never tried before
The teaching staff are all very friendly and easily reachable via email for any concerns about lectures, seminars, tutorials and exams. They are also always available after the lecture to answer any questions you have that you don't want to say in front of the lecture hall.
I chose to have an ensuite this first year, really spacious and good sized sink. The kitchen has plenty of storage cabinets and multiple fridge/freezers for you and flat mates. The kitchen also doubles as a hangout spot with two sofas near the window.
Constantly taking in feedback, genuinely cares about students. Not a good club/society life.
Wish there was more investment in facilities. A lot of contact hours (but you cant really help it). A lot of the slides are hard to follow. Easy to get hold of lectureres
I love how diverse the city is and how much there is to do and the transport links via the train mean its easy to get to different places in the Midlands and even London. I also like how many different study and social spaces there are on campus, there's a different vibe for everyone.
I like how much support there is from the lecturers in the forms of practicals, workshops and tutorials, but in the first semester I wasn't a fan of how many assignments we had all at once, as I prefer a sparse spread through the term and then end-of-module assessments as it allows me to not get overwhelmed but this semester it's exactly like that so I am enjoying it.
Definitely recommend it for prospective first years, its a lovely environment as everyone's in the same boat as you, and the different events held allow everyone to socialise and make friends, the Oadby village is also so safe and away from the city so it gives a sense of peace and calm whilst having the social aspect of everyone living super close to each other and getting along! The university bus also makes it easier to get to the university for lectures and the city if needed.
One of my favourite cities in the UK, which is compounded by a university that's always trying to improve student services and offer students things to do; I only wish my student debt wouldn't be so high at the end of it all.
One of the only unis in the country to still offer cadaveric dissection, which forms part of the 1st two years of your course in which you learn as much as physically possible via in person lectures and group work tutorials. The last 3 years then follow an apprenticeship approach with in-placement teaching, skills sessions and allocations to wards/theaters.
It was cheap and so made less of a dent in my maintenance loan.
Bets aspects are the facilities, they are modern and there’s enough space to accommodate everyone.
One of the best things about my course is that we have many facilities, supports dedicated just for law students. This makes studying her easy and fun as the support available is unlimited.
Best thing is the variation of places and the space. There is plenty of room for all types of studying. Worst aspects is that the college kids from next door come on campus during lunchtimes creating more queues and it can be annoying but isn't too bad.
Best is that we get lecture notes printed out. Worst is that there are inconsistencies with modules on the course
The campus has almost everything and more that you could think to need during your time at university. The centrality of it and its services make it super accessible. I also like services provided by the university to ensure student wellbeing and safety (e.g. SafeZone App).
Individuals are supported and their course/ research is allowed to be moulded by what that student wants to achieve.
