The Leicester Way

The Leicester Award

As part of our innovative and extensive employability programme, we actively encourage students to get involved in the prestigious Leicester Award. The Leicester Award is a series of experiences designed to help them develop in-demand and must-have transferable skills. This gives our students a business edge and a level of commercial awareness that you’ll be hard pushed to find anywhere else.

No Prep No Entry

We want our students to make the most of the time they have with employers, which is why for each activity we run we ask them to complete some form of preparation which is checked by our team before entering an event or activity. Without this, they will not be able to take part. We also believe this is important for reflecting on experiences afterwards, so students understand the skills and knowledge they’ve developed and how to explain this to potential employers, on applications and in interviews.

Social Mobility

At the University of Leicester we’re fortunate to benefit from a vibrant mix of students from a diverse range of social and cultural backgrounds. We are proud to work with many employers who champion social mobility. To see more visit our Social Mobility page.
