A move to a new city can feel liberating but how do you get the best out of your student experience? What things can you do? Especially when money and transportation may be obstacles.
You want to work hard and build something for yourself but we all know it is equally important to have a work life balance.
Is Leicester a great place for students to study?
Leicester has progressed and is now attracting even more university students as well as international students, located right in the middle of England it is a great melting pot for many cultures.
It is no surprise that Leicester can also be a great place to unwind and socialise, here are our top picks of things to do in Leicester.

Looking at what’s on offer for free over the next month, I feel the handpicked list demonstrates how interesting Leicester City can be.
Free is great and everything but sometimes it’s nice to give something back, step out of the take, take, take mentality and join MLS for an evening. MLS have generated a considerable amount of media attention recently for providing hot meals to the homeless.
Your environment should inspire you to be the greatest version of you, will Leicester do that for you…?
