About theUniversity

Leicester University, founded as a university college in 1921 and granted its Royal Charter in 1957, is a government-financed institution with a leading international reputation for teaching and research. It has over 12,000 students. Of the 8,500 full-time students, 10% come from outside the European Union, from a total of more than 60 countries. There are 3,500 students taking courses by distance learning. The University has first-rate facilities for teaching, study, research, sports and leisure.

The main campus occupies an attractive site close to the city centre and a short distance away there are excellent student residential facilities set in fine gardens. Leicester, with a population of more than 300,000, is a commercial and cosmopolitan city with a wide variety of shops, restaurants, cultural and recreational amenities. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, Leicester is situated almost exactly in the centre of England, 160km north of London (just over one hour by train) and within easy reach of many other major towns and places of interest - including Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and both Oxford and Cambridge, the sites of the ancient universities.
