University of Leicester

The Fulbright University of Leicester Award covers the first year of any master's degree programme offered by the university.

The University of Leicester was founded almost a hundred years ago in the aftermath of the Great War. The men and women who built this new institution hoped that sacrifices made in war should be commemorated through education and research that would change the world for the better.

Leicester is ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world by Times Higher Education (THE).

The compact campus contains a wide range of 20th-century architecture, though the oldest building, the Fielding Johnson Building, dates from 1837. The main campus is a mile south of the city centre, adjacent to Victoria Park and Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College.

In the UK, master's degrees are typically one-year programmes (full-time).
