Welcome Citizens of Change
We couldn’t be prouder that you are joining us! You are a generation like no other – you have risen to the unprecedented challenges of our time and are investing in your future with a world-class education.
You are now part of a University ranked among the top 200 in the world with a world-leading reputation for research and discovery. We are proud to be a global university in a city that is among the most culturally and ethnically diverse in the UK. Over a quarter of our students come from outside the UK, spanning 117 countries.
As a former international student myself, my postgraduate experience helped me to shape and build my future. Our purpose is to empower you with a transformative experience -not only to prepare you for change, but to be change makers. Your postgraduate degree will hone your skills, attributes and critical thinking to overcome the challenges you will face.
You join Leicester at an historical epoch – the start of our centenary year. We were founded with a mission to create a better world. Our aim is to equip you with more than a degree – with the courage to question, the strength to change, and the passion to discover. As global citizens, you are the future – our hope for a better tomorrow.
Above all, have a wonderful time at Leicester. Be yourself and express your individuality. We’ll support you every step of the way. We want you to pursue the unknown, go beyond expectation and make a lasting impact.
I wish you all the best with your endeavours.
President and Vice-Chancellor
