Student Stories

In just a few months into my first year at the University of Leicester, I already feel confident that I've made the right choice. The university's strong focus on tech innovation and a curriculum balancing theory and practical skills initially attracted me, and it has lived up to that promise. The hands-on approach to learning, especially in the AI module, feels like we're peeking into the future. The professors are supportive and genuinely interested in our ideas, and we have a strong sense of community. My advice for those considering Computer Science at Leicester is to embrace every opportunity to learn and connect. It's a place where your curiosity can truly take flight."

Dominic Murphy

First Year BSc Computer Science:

Starting Computer Science at the University of Leicester has been trouble-free and straightforward. The introductory lectures provided a clear debrief of what to expect, making the journey's beginning seamless. I chose this degree because I believe it will play a significant role in the future, especially with automation and AI. The modules in the first semester were apt and varied enough to give a good impression of the subject. My favorite part of the course is the lab sessions, which offer valuable one-to-one feedback and help. To those considering Computer Science as their degree, I advise maintaining a strong passion and being ready to delve into research beyond the course curriculum. It's a field where enthusiasm and exploration make the learning experience even more rewarding!
