At Leicester, we’re proud to do things a bit differently. We believe that our world-changing research produces the highest quality teaching and will inspire you to go further.
We are consistently ranked highly in the major national league tables out of over 120 universities and we are ranked in the top 25 universities in the Times Higher Education REF Research Power rankings.
Today our University is a lively, energetic and global community, in which dedicated and talented people are anticipating, working towards and helping to shape the future. We envision being a University which is open to talent, not privilege and accessible to everyone with the ability to benefit from higher education.
This is what makes the Leicester experience unique.
Equality, diversity and inclusion
We believe that equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is integral to a successful place of work and study. As a result of this, students and staff come from across the globe to study and work at Leicester, bringing with them an incredible diversity of viewpoints, beliefs, attitudes and approaches which enrich both the University and the city.
We want to develop and implement policies and systems that challenge stereotypes across all aspects of our work. Such a culture, and the consequent sustainable programme of change, will benefit everyone in the University. It will attract a diverse range of high quality staff and students, and identify our University as a progressive and innovative workplace that mainstreams equality, diversity and inclusion.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to flourish in an inclusive environment. We will take a proactive approach to advancing equality and inclusion for all our students, staff and stakeholders, regardless of age, disability, race/ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity/paternity, religion or belief/non-belief, sex or sexual orientation.
