Leicester - University of Leicester

University of Leicester is one of Britain's foremost centres of excellence for research and teaching, is renowned for - among other things - the revolutionary discovery of DNA fingerprinting and for leading Europe in space research.

The University Road campus has an impressive range of buildings - from elegant late Georgian to the dramatic 1960s engineering building. You will have heard of many of our graduates - Sue Cook, Mike Nicholson, Tony Underwood for instance; while honorary members include such famous Leicester figures as Richard and David Attenborough, Dusty Hare and Gary Lineker.

Much of University's pace-setting work has an impact on the quality of life - from University's unique disability and arts centre to football research; from crime research to medical care in Leicester's hospitals; from child protection to holocaust studies. Over 10,000 full and part-time students from over 80 countries enjoy excellent facilities too - a library with over a million books, good accommodation, restaurants and snack bars, two nightclubs, extensive sports and fitness facilities cater for almost every academic and social need. Welfare and guidance services prepare students for fulfilling and productive careers. In recent independent teaching assessments, several departments have been rated as excellent.

A visit to Leicester University could be a first step on a voyage of discovery... A full range of undergraduate and post graduate degree courses in nearly every subject area - many available part-time and by distance learning. Professional development, continuing education and language training programmes. Conference capacity for between 5 and 1,500 people. The Botanic Garden, open all year round Mondays to Fridays - 16 acres of beauty and tranquillity. Vistitors are welcome to visit the University, browse in the bookshops, enjoy the catering facilities and shop on campus. Concerts, drama and free public lectures add to the reasons for calling in.
