Leics Talk About...

Leics Talk About… is a series of talks and discussions on the issues that matter most to you as a student.

Every first Wednesday of the month (term time) we will have a guest speaker share their experiences on a particular topic, before opening up the floor to you. Be inspired, meet fellow students, enjoy food and drink, and have your say on the shared issues that matter to you.

Please note that while our events are tailored to certain audiences, they are open to all students.
