Student Recruitment Office

The Student Recruitment Office is responsible for recruiting undergraduates.

Our purpose is to lead and co-ordinate all work to ensure the University reaches its home and EU undergraduate admissions targets, to improve the academic quality of the University’s intake and to protect the diversity of this intake.

These pages are aimed at all staff and students of the University of Leicester who are looking to find out more about the work of the office; those who may be involved an any of a wide range of activities aimed at attracting and recruiting students to the University and who may be seeking support or advice about this work.
