Leicester is undisputedly a fantastic student city; whether you’re looking for a vibrant nightlife, culture, history or world class sport, Leicester has it all including the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India.
Hosting two universities, University of Leicester and De Montfort University, Leicester has a student population of over 35,000 and so it’s no surprise that the city welcomes students with open arms. This Midlands city on the bank of the River Soar is considered one of the UK’s oldest cities with a history dating back to the Roman times and Leicester Cathedral is also the final resting place of King Richard III.
The city is one of the most diverse and multi-cultural in the UK, making it a hub for many internationally inspired festivals and events, including theatre and comedy at the renowned Curve Theatre. Belgrave’s Golden Mile hosts the Hindu celebrations of Navratri and Diwali, the festival of light which is something that needs to be seen to be believed.
