Ambitious Leicester student wins award

Leicester student Oishi wins an award

A former student of the University of Leicester International Study Centre has been recognised for her achievements at the University of Leicester Student Awards 2017.

An exceptional student

Oishi from India was awarded the President and Vice Chancellor Student of the Year award, which celebrates the fantastic achievements of students throughout the year. The winner does not only excel academically, but also supports their peers to do their best.

Oishi was also Highly Commended for the Outstanding Commitment to Professional Development award. This award recognises students who prepare for their future with extra-curricular activities, such as work experience and volunteering.

This is not the first time that Oishi’s achievements have been recognised. The BEng Software and Electronic Engineering student was recently nominated in the Telegraph STEM Awards, as well as being shortlisted for the TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year award for Computer Science, IT and Physics.

Leicester is a great place for ambitious students like Oishi to develop their skills. The University is ranked 25th in the UK.*
