Digital Offer Holder Day Welcome Talk

Welcome to the University of Leicester

We don't want you to miss out on the benefits of attending a University of Leicester Offer Holder Day, which is why for our 6 May event we've moved everything online.

In these strange and uncertain times we know that one of your principal concerns is how the unprecedented cancellation of exams across the UK will affect your University application. Rest assured that the offer we made you still stands and we very much want to welcome you here in the autumn.

The Government is working out a system for calculated grades which will ensure that no student is disadvantaged, and we will let you know details when this is confirmed.
