About University of Leicester

The University of Leicester is a university with a truly global outlook. We are committed to fostering a teaching and learning environment that transforms the prospects of our students and those they will go on to influence, and we undertake world-class research that saves, improves and enriches lives.

Our University was founded as Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland University College in 1921 and was granted a Royal Charter in 1957. The site for our University was donated by a local textile manufacturer, Thomas Fielding Johnson, in order to create a living memorial for those who made sacrifices during the First World War. This is reflected in our motto: Ut Vitam Habeant – ‘so that they may have life’.

While proud of our heritage, Leicester is a university that keeps an eye on the future. This approach enables us to adapt to changing landscapes and seize opportunities. We offer our students a unique international perspective and exciting career opportunities, grounded in a vibrant multi-cultural city located in the very heart of the United Kingdom.
