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 we've moved everything online.

In these uncertain times, with information and advice on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) changing on a daily basis, at the University of Leicester we have made the decision to postpone our on campus Offer Holder days on 21 March and 4 April.

We’ve listened to your feedback, so as part of our digital Offer Holder Day, you will:

  • Hear talks from our academics
  • Explore our accommodation and facilities
  • Chat with our current students
  • Find out more about your new hometown

So, explore our digital Offer Holder Day – we very much look forward to you joining us at the start of term to launch yourself onto an amazing degree.

Here are some tips for you... get ready to be on standby with advice on how to cook for new housemates, how to turn on a washing machine (unless washing is saved for visits back home) and waving goodbye after you’ve dropped them off during Welcome Week (make sure you have tissues at the ready).
