About University: Leicester students - all 21,000 of them - certainly appear to be happy bunnies: it has been in the top 10 for overall satisfaction since the national student survey started in 2005 and the dropout rate is notably low. The appeal might lie in the friendly and compact campus, a 10-minute walk from one end to the other, providing you don't get sidetracked by any of the on-campus facilities. Victoria Park next door is a convenient and popular place to relax when the weather is good.

Add in Leicester itself, a lively, multicultural city with great facilities and transport links, and it's no wonder everyone is so pleased to be there.
