Central Campus

Central Campus

Our campus is one of the things that makes the University of Leicester special. It's not a massive sprawling campus outside of a city, but it's also not squeezed in among the buildings of a busy city centre.

What there is - and what the students love - is a compact campus that's close enough to the city centre that you can walk into town, but far enough out that we have our own space. The green expanse of Victoria Park provides the University with a perfect ‘back garden’ for relaxing or sport.

Job Prospects

Hit the ground running. There’s no need to wait until after graduation to make a difference in the world. Throughout your time at Leicester, you will have multiple opportunities to gain valuable experience by working with and for companies and organisations that affect people’s lives. It’s not just that we offer extra-curricular activities such as volunteering, industry placements or the chance to study abroad – it’s that our degrees actually have employability built into them.

For example, we’ve developed modules that encourage you to apply your learning into real contexts – whether it’s solving a business problem from an external client or understanding what goes on behind the scenes of a literary festival. With one-to-one appointments, group workshops, specialised training and more – we’re here to support you every step of the way. And that goes for after you graduate too.

Campus Life

Student Life

Student Life

Life at Leicester is more than just what happens in lectures. Our campus is small enough to feel like home and big enough to branch out and experience new things. Wherever you walk around campus, you’ll come across cosy corners, green patches, and other spaces to meet up with friends, take time out, or get ahead on your assignments. At Leicester, you can shape your own experience the way you want.

You’ll have the freedom and the support to express yourself – it’s the best way to ensure success and manage your wellbeing. You can join a student group, make use of our first-rate sports facilities, get involved with the arts, cheer along on the sidelines, or all of the above – it’s up to you. Either way, getting involved in campus life is worth it. And chances are you’ll make some great memories – and even greater friends.
