Semester Exchange - University of Leicester

Semester Exchange - University of Leicester

Leicester University was founded almost a hundred years ago in the aftermath of the Great War. The men and women who built this new institution hoped that it would be not only a living memorial to the darkness of their recent past, but a beacon of hope for the future. Their aim was that sacrifices made in war should be commemorated through education and research that would change the world for the better. 

Today it is a lively, energetic and global community, in which dedicated and talented people are anticipating, working towards and helping to shape the future. It was ranked 13th among all British universities by The Guardian in 2014. Leicester University is committed both to undertaking research that saves, improves and enriches lives, and to fostering a teaching and learning environment that transforms the prospects of students and those they will go on to influence.
