A university should be about empowering people to explore; through passionate, dedicated teaching and innovative, world-changing research. By embracing the fact that every journey is personal, the University has achieved some remarkable results.

At Leicester, high quality research and excellent teaching are not only complementary, they’re inseparable. Leicester is constantly finding new ways of being a leading university since 1921. Leicester is the only university to win seven consecutive Times Higher Awards. In awarding us ‘University of the Year’, Times Higher Education applauded Leicester’s very different approach, describing the university as “elite without being elitist”.
