Union Wins


As a member of your Students' Union, there are a number of ways that you can voice your opinions, express your concerns and generally help shape the future of student life at the University of Leicester.

These include getting involved in Executive Elections - either by running as a candidate, or by voting for one. You can also have a real say in the teaching and learning experience that you receive as a student at Leicester by becoming a Course Representative.
