Facilities for students

Lab experience and fieldwork experience are key to developing practical skills and fundamental understanding of the scientific process. We use specialist subject laboratories in Physics, Chemistry and Life Sciences at the University. In addition to this Leicester is one of the few Universities in the country with its own Botanic Gardens, used for Year 1 fieldwork and our open-ended investigative project in Year 2.

Our students also have their own dedicated Natural Sciences group study area which provides an opportunity to work and socialise together outside class.
