Higher Education at Leicester College

So you’re probably wondering: why should I study a university-level course at Leicester College?

Here are just six reasons why we are the best place for you to take your next step:

  1. Affordable, high quality learning: Our fees are more affordable than many universities, but with the same great teaching and learning experience. You could also save money by living at home rather than staying in expensive halls of residences or private accommodation at university. We have been awarded a Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework for higher education, which measures excellence in teaching quality; the learning environment; and the educational and professional outcomes achieved by students.
  2. Exceptional standards of teaching: All of our teaching staff are experienced industry professionals with a genuine passion for their subjects – you can really benefit from their exceptional teaching and mentoring.
  3. Flexible study to suit you: We offer courses on both a full and part-time basis, enabling you to choose a mode of study that suits your lifestyle.
  4. Improved employability: We have long-lasting partnerships with local and national employers – offering you the opportunity to undertake work experience placements at some of the best companies around. Gaining a qualification at Leicester College will help you on the road to your dream career in a highly-competitive jobs market.
  5. Great support: All of our students benefit from having a personal tutor, who can provide support and guidance in one-to-one tutorials, and help you to access additional learning support to help you to complete your course successfully.
  6. Your voice is heard: Student Voice is an important part all our courses, and helps to improve your learning experience. Each course is asked to elect representatives to act as a communication channel between students, tutors and Curriculum Managers. Student reps provide regular feedback through the HE Student Forum and discussion with Curriculum Managers. In addition, we are piloting an HE Student Ambassador project to ensure that our student voice is represented at the highest levels across the College. We will also seek your opinion through occasional surveys, such as the Ipsos Mori National Student Survey. Your feedback through these activities is essential to ensure the continual improvement of our programmes.
