The University of Leicester is governed by Council and Senate. It is managed by the University Leadership Team, chaired by the President and Vice-Chancellor.             

Academic disciplines are organised into three academic Colleges, each of which is divided into a number of departments and schools. Each College is led by a Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Head of College, who also sits on the University Leadership Team and University Executive Board.             

The University’s Professional Services, located in the academic departments, colleges and Corporate Services. , work in partnership with academics to support the academic mission of the University. Professional Services are led by the Registrar & Secretary. 

Our structure enables us to work across disciplines, bringing innovative, collaborative approaches to our research and teaching.
