Overview

We believe that the best universities are not just the privilege of elites. We're proof that you can stand alongside the best and open up the competition for everyone. Some universities consider their primary purpose to be high quality research, others concentrate on excellent teaching. At Leicester we think that the two are not only complementary, they're inseparable. We believe that teaching is more inspirational when delivered by passionate scholars engaged in world-changing research – and that research is stronger when delivered in an academic community that includes students. With these ideas at heart, Leicester is re-framing the values that govern academia and re-defining what a university needs to be in the 21st century. We are constantly finding new ways of being a leading university. The Times Higher Education applauded Leicester's very different approach, describing us as “elite without being elitist.” We were proud to be described as elite. But we were equally as proud to be described as a university that is inclusive and accessible in its academic culture. We've achieved success through our distinctive work which is characterised by the following approach: An inclusive and accessible cultureA personal, supportive experience for those who use our servicesA commitment to high quality, innovation and rigorous academic standardsA belief that teaching and research are synergistic
