About the University of Leicester

The University has founded as Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland University College in 1921. The site for the University was donated by a local businessman, Thomas Fielding Johnson, in order to create a living memorial for all local people who made sacrifices during the First World War. This is reflected in the University’s motto Ut Vitam habeant – ‘so that they may have life.

Leicester is ranked in the top 25 universities in the Times Higher Education REF Research Power rankings. The Power ranking takes into account both the quality of research and the number of research-active staff who made REF returns. Research power is important because it gives a strong indication of a combination of world-class research, international impact, critical mass, and sustainability.

75% of their research was judged to be internationally excellent with wide-ranging impacts on society, health culture, and the environment. That Leicester also entered a substantial proportion of academics (84%) to the REF demonstrates that their academics are continuing to develop and build upon their world-leading research.

Diverse in their makeup and united in ambition, they pursue excellence in knowledge and learning to transform the community, their world, and beyond. ‘We are Citizens of Change’. Their plan defines who they will be and how they will get there.
