The Leicester student experience

 An international student graduating from the University of Leicester

"I participated in the Telegraph STEM Awards last year and I became the runner up in the Power System category. It was a great experience for me and I was very pleased to appear on the newspaper. I won the first prize in a hackathon and went on to the international hackathons taking place in Spain".

"I think Leicester is a great place to study Management because unlike a lot of other courses where it's very theoretical, it's a lot more practical. You are encouraged to think like managers, so you become future leaders. I think Leicester is a great place for that, because you get first-hand experience".

"I think Leicester is a place where you can concentrate and focus on yourself. In Leicester, it is quieter and you can really find yourself here. I think the most important thing in university is, other than your studies, developing yourself, like your personality, your character and it’s a good place to start in Leicester".

"Leicester is diverse in terms of cultures and that people are from different countries. I wanted to surround myself with people like that because I didn’t want to just minimise my contact with just one certain group of people, I wanted to know more about different people and different cultures".

"There are so many facilities in the University which really help me to engage with studying. I really like the library, it’s 24 hours. We can enjoy studying and don’t need to be afraid of closing times".

"Because of the International Study Centre, when you go to the University you are already familiar as you have been to the campus and you’ve used library. So in the first couple of weeks, you’re actually more accustomed to the system than the home students because we had induction sessions for how to use the library and requirements for the essays".
