 What our students say


Fumika Iwaoka, MSc Nursing

"The location of Leicester is very good. Students can travel around the UK easily and to go to London only takes 1 hour on the train.

The relationship between professors and students is very close and professors are always very helpful and supportive. University support staff can help teach writing skills from very basic level to high level for any level of student".
