International Students Day


Take part in our International Students Survey:

Ola Dalek, your International Students' Officer is campaigning for better pastoral and practical spport for International students. Her aim this year is to get International Students more involved in making change on campus. Your voice matters and we want it to be heard.

40% of students at the University of Leicester are international, and deserve to be represented too.

You may even win a Uni of Leicester goodie bag worth £20.


There are more than 4000 International Students at our University and Leicester is one of the most diverse cities in the UK. Diversity is what unites us and International Students' Day is a chance to celebrate multiculturalism and find out more about different cultures that we are surrounded by. Through understanding and embracing our differences, we build awareness of cultural diversity and learn to appreciate each other.

During the day you are welcome to take part in many activities taking place on campus where you can meet new people, talk to them and broaden your knowledge about foreign countries.
