University finance

What do I get?

What do you get for your tuition fee? Well, you get all this and more: 

Students’ Union 

The SU is the social hub of the university, providing space to meet, eat and relax, with more than 200 clubs and societies plus the UK's only on-campus O2 Academy. 

Career support 

Right from your first year, our Career Development Service will help you, so that when you eventually don that cap and gown you're ready for what comes next. 


The David Wilson Library is open 24/7 in the run-up to exams. The dedicated staff will help you make the most of the enormous range of resources. 

Accommodation support 

The Accommodation Team is available 24/7 and our friendly student Residential Advisors are always on hand with help, advice and support. 


Your place at graduation, with two guests, is guaranteed – and we’ll make sure you’re ready for the big day so you can celebrate with friends and family. 

Health and welfare support 

The Student Welfare Service offers specialist advice on issues including health, childcare, benefits, finance and personal problems. 

One-to-one academic support 

Your Personal Tutor will stay with you from the start of your course right through to graduation, helping you with any problems or queries, academic or personal. 

Personal safety 

SafeZone is a free app which lets you alert University Security if you ever need urgent assistance or first aid, or if you have an emergency while on campus. 

Spiritual and emotional support 

Whatever your faith – or even if you have none – our Chaplaincy is a place to meet new friends, to relax, pray and discuss things that matter to you. 

Work opportunities  

Our in-house recruitment agency Unitemps can help you find part-time work during term or full-time, temporary work during the summer vacation. 

Academic skills help 

The Academic Skills Centre provides one-to-one help, advice and online resources in areas such as maths, academic writing, study skills and preparing for exams.  

And that’s just the tangible aspects of the University of Leicester experience. This list doesn’t include things that can’t be quantified, like lifelong friendships, incredible memories, boosted confidence and a sense of achievement that will carry you into your first full-time job and beyond.
