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.

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