Prospective students

There will be a single, central record of externally visible content e.g. course and student life information online.

Pages should link to and not duplicate standardised University content such as course information pages, admission requirements, costs, etc.

The Prospective Students sections of the University website will contain the core information sought by prospective students who are considering which institution they should apply to. This information includes:

  • Course information
  • Student Life information
  • Application and Entrance Requirements
  • Fees (including additional costs) and Funding
  • Details of Student Accommodation
  • Information for International Students
  • Virtual Tours and Visitor Information

The Prospective Students sections are the first point-of-contact with the University for most prospective student enquirers. They act as a one-stop-shop for all preliminary enquiries about our degree courses and facilities.

The core content of the site is drawn from the printed versions of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Prospectuses. However the website provides more scope to provide additional, detailed information about degree programmes. All content appearing on the site must be fully audited to ensure accuracy, consistency and relevance. The content must be updated regularly.

The Prospective Students sections are designed to provide information on a wide range of subjects of interest to prospective student considering the University of Leicester. Prospective students may access our website through a wide variety of entry points. If they have used a search engine, the combination of search terms used will dictate, or at least contribute to, the search results generated. That being the case, it is important that prospective students can navigate their way through to the information they require and that the content is consistent, accurate and meets Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) guidelines.

To adhere to CMA guidelines, departments need to provide links to the following centrally managed sections of the University of Leicester website rather than duplicating content already provided:

  • Student Life
  • Undergraduate courses
  • Postgraduate courses
  • Distance Learning courses
  • Postgraduate Research
  • International Students
  • Scholarships and Funding

Additionally, further direct links to the prospective students site may be beneficial to departments. Please discuss links with a member of the Web Communications Team:
