Why Study at the University of Leicester

The University of Leicester is a public research institution located in Leicester, England. The main campus is located south of the city centre, near Victoria Park. It offers over 150 various degrees with the possibility of getting an optional year abroad in one of 27 other countries. The university traces its roots back to 1900 after the establishment of Birmingham University and Nottingham University College, and the success of Owen's College in Manchester. It was thought that Leicester had to have a university college as well which is when the serious suggestions for the formation of the university in Leicester came about.

At that time, all the university colleges weren’t fully independent to award degrees, yet they were associated with other universities. Mostly, all students had their exam at the University of London. And in 1957, the University College was granted its Royal Charter as a university. Accordingly, it could award its degrees for admitted students. In 1994, the University of Leicester won the Queen's Anniversary Prize for its professional work in Physics & Astronomy with the citation: "World-class teaching, research, and consultancy programme in astronomy and space and planetary science fields. Practical results from advanced thinking".

In 2011, the university was chosen as one of four sites for theoretical astrophysics and particle physics for national high-performance computing (HPC) facilities. Moreover, in September 2012, a ULAS team excavated the body of King Richard III, discovering it in the former Greyfriars Friary Church in the city of Leicester. They also discovered genetic fingerprinting and contributed to the identification and discovery of the remains of King Richard III. In January 2017, the University of Leicester Physics students revealed in the national news that in only 100 days, a zombie apocalypse would be able to completely take over the earth. 

The first major building was the university’s Engineering building which is very notable for its internal functions in its external form. It includes laboratories, workshops, and a tower containing offices and lecture theatres. The University of Leicester’s buildings were used as a military hospital during WWI, while The Adrian Building was where genetic fingerprinting was discovered in 1984 by Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys.
