Leicester boasts so many attributes it is impossible to list them all, but students choose to study here because Leicester feels like home the moment you set foot on campus. ‘Elite without being elitist’ is not just a tag line; it’s a reality for every student studying with us. Our Students’ Union is home to the O2 Academy Leicester bringing great bands and club nights to our building!
