Leicester offers everything you expect from a city and more – all on your doorstep. There are great shops, bars and restaurants just a short distance from campus. Leicester was also named the fourth most vibrant city in the UK, putting it ahead of the likes of Bristol, Edinburgh, Leeds and London (Top Cities Vibrancy Report, 2022), as well as the best city in the East Midlands to live and work (Good Growth for Cities Index, 2022). Leicester is rich in culture and diversity, making it feel like the world is on your doorstep. It’s home to one of the biggest celebrations of Diwali outside of India, too.
