Leicester Enhanced Access Programme

The Leicester Enhanced Access Programme (LEAP) is designed to engage talented Year 12 students from across the East Midlands who have an interest in studying here at the University of Leicester but whose personal circumstances may have affected their ability to reach their full academic potential. To find out if a student is eligible for LEAP and how to apply, visit the 'Eligibility and How to Apply' pages.

Through a series of high impact activities taking place throughout their post 16 studies, students will receive support in areas like independent learning, team working, academic research and writing, university admissions processes and careers planning as well as further developing key personal skills, self-confidence and a positive mental attitude.

With direct access to University staff and students, as well as a dedicated student e-mentor, LEAP will give students a first-hand experience of what it’s like to study at one of the UKs best universities and help to better prepare them for taking that exciting LEAP into University. To find out more about what student will get out of LEAP please do have a look at the 'Programme Benefits' pages.
