The University of Leicester United Kingdom

The University of Leicester is an international centre of learning with a worldwide reputation. It is a traditional British university founded in 1921 offering undergraduate degrees, masters courses and research programmes. Many postgraduate courses are available by distance learning.

Citizens of over eighty countries are represented on campus. Each year, there are more than 1000 students from outside the United Kingdom studying the full range of subjects and degrees courses available.

The International Office will provide all the information you need about applying for a course at the University of Leicester and can advise on Scholarships, English Language programmes and acceptability of international qualifications.

Representatives of the University visit many different countries each year to advise prospective students by attending Education Fairs, visiting schools and colleges or holding presentations at British Council offices.

The University has a Students' Union Officer with responsibility for international students. A member of the Welfare Office is specifically responsible for advising international students on issues such as visas, employment, finance and cultural adjustment.

The University greatly values the contribution which is made to its life by international students and holds a special introduction to the University and life in Leicester for new students from overseas at the beginning of the autumn and spring semesters.
