Description of University of Leicester

We think a university should be about empowering people to explore what they don’t know through passionate, dedicated teaching and innovative, world-changing research. By embracing the fact that we’re all coming at it from a slightly different place, and that every journey is personal, we’ve managed to achieve some remarkable results in our time (http://www2.le.ac.uk/about/facts ). The University of Leicester is a leading UK University committed to international excellence through the creation of world-changing research and high quality, inspirational teaching delivered in an inclusive academic environment. Our research changes the world. We have developed pioneering medical techniques, discovered ancient civilisations, led the search for King Richard III and travelled to Mars.
