The university is poorly organised for distance (adult) learners. Its sense of 'community' is almost non-existent for distance learners, there is very little student-to-student contact. The school changed policies about marks and deadlines without notice and in mid-programme, which obviously alters fundamentally the nature of the study trajectory. The stress caused by the school's pattern of arbitrary and unannounced modification to the fundamental relationship seriously detracts from one's ability to do the best work. Overall it has been an unsatisfactory experience that I would not wish upon others. show less

I had the most amazing time at the University of Leicester. Other students and all of the staff were friendly, helpful, and made me feel less worried about the workload and pressure. I had a brilliant social life aswell as concentrating on my studies. My advice for anyone going to Leicester would be to make the most of the experience. Make friends, work hard and make the experience one to remember. Be confident and determined and you'll have the best time! show less
