The type of teaching is varied (lectures, tutorials & practicals) and some lecturers will alter their teaching to suits your needs if the majority of the class agree. Depending on the course you are studying depends on content. I find my science course to be very diverse and interesting. Even on boring topics the lecturers try to jazz it up a bit. As for how challenging the work is, depends on how much work you put into it. Work can come in the form of general note taking, essays, case studies, practicals, lab write-ups and portfolios. Feedback from tutors can vary. You should receive feedback in all areas of your work, if you don't, ask for it!!! Lecturers will be happy to tell you where they think your capabilities are and how you can achieve more.×

Leicester has an abundance of cheap food, and is very convenient for travel as most places of interest are within easy walking distance. The only really difficult element is to not overspend at the various takeaways and bars which are both abundant and excellent. With some care, Leicester is a very cost-effective city to live in.×

Newarke Point is the halls I stayed in in my first year and there are no halls that can quite compare. The location is literally slap bang in the middle of campus, which seems a little odd but when you miss your alarm and have 10mins (if that!) to get to your lectures, you can simply roll out of bed in to your lectures with 2mins to spare. IT'S JUST THAT CLOSE! It also makes it the most sociable of all the halls and has the reputation as the party halls. BUT don't think this'll mean party get too out of hand as the security are pretty strict in the first term to keep freshers from going too wild. Beware of the laundrette and people movng your clothes out of the washer! Set an alarm on your phone to go collect it before this unfortunate incedent happens to you. The included internet is good but slow and certainly not wireless! All in all halls are a must for first years - best times ever!×
Lots of local shops available near campus at reasonable prices. Lots of part-time work. Campus all very close, public transport...

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
