Family Programme

We believe it is important for the families of our students to be involved in the life of the University.

At Leicester we have much to offer students - an excellent education in a supportive environment with a wide range of facilities. We strive to help every student fulfil his or her potential and acquire the skills and knowledge they need to develop as individuals and to make a valuable contribution to society. We recognise the role which the family provides in achieving these ends.

Family Programme Campus Tour

Starting University is an exciting time; for most students and parents it is a new phase of learning which may also be a little daunting – making new friends, academic expectations, living on a student loan, together with the responsibilities which independence brings. This is a key transition period for parents and significant others as well as students and we believe it is important for the families of our students to be involved in the life of the University.
To help you be involved, we have arranged a tour of the University’s campus especially for parents and guardians on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September at 2pm and 3pm where we will answer any questions you might have. If you are a family member of a medical student you are also more that welcome to join us for the tours. To book your tour or become a member of the Family Programme please complete this form.

Meeting Point - If you would like to join us on a tour then please meet us outside the Charles Wilson Building where you will find one of our Student Ambassadors waiting for you.

You'll also have the chance to speak to one of our current second or third year students by phone to update you on all the University's news and events and seek your support for our student-led fundraising appeal.

Family Programme members are welcome to use the University Bookshop which is open to the general public as well as students. The Bookshop offers an arrangement by which money may be deposited by parents or friends and later used to purchase books and stationery. For further details please call (0116) 229 7440.
