Great Minds Gravitate Here

We are the home of experts. Our expertise is in every research paper we write, in every lecture we deliver. And it’s in every degree we teach.

Welcome to the University of Leicester

At the University of Leicester, we like to find answers to tough questions. Questions like: how do you hold an Open Day when campus is closed and we all need to observe social distancing?

For our Postgraduate Open Day on 26 March 2020, we moved everything online. If you missed that date, don’t worry – most of it is still here. Take a look around this page for lots of great postgraduate resources including:

  • Chat with our academics and staff online
  • Explore our facilities, accommodation and finance options
  • Ask our current postgraduate students anything you want
  • View our postgraduate courses and apply online
  • Find out more about the city of Leicester, your new home town
  • Find information on how to make your application.

Right now we can’t say whether our next Postgraduate Open Day will be in the real world or online. What we can say is that we hope you’ll join us either way. And we very much look forward to welcoming you to campus soon to discover exactly why Great Minds Gravitate Here.
