Citys rocket tower to become beacon for students for Clearing

Our University is beaming out a message to A-level students across Leicester – and it’s 25 metres tall!

The National Space Centre, a prominent landmark in the Leicester landscape, will become a beacon for Leicester’s A-level students celebrating their results as it displays a projection inviting them to ‘launch yourself’ at the University of Leicester and reminding them that ‘space is available’ during Clearing.

The moving image will be projected on to the external structure of the 42 metre rocket tower at the National Space Centre, with the projection itself measuring around 25 metres high. The University has worked with Hawthorn Lighting from Melton Mowbray to create the massive projection.

The projection will be visible on Wednesday 15th, Thursday 16th and Friday 17th August from 8:30-10pm.

Local students who have secured a place with Leicester are being encouraged to send selfies to the University’s Twitter account and the best one will win a ‘welcome’ gift from the University. Local students can submit their selfies of themselves with the projection by tweeting #Clearing2018 and #LaunchYourself

This follows the launch of the University of Leicester’s first major brand and recruitment campaign last week, which features on TV, cinema, social media and national press. It will run over the next six weeks.
