I completed a Master's degree in Marketing at the University of Leicester in 2023 as an international student. With its rich multicultural tapestry, Leicester had stood out to me as the perfect location, especially given the university's reputation for academic excellence. I lived at St. George’s Tower, where the bustling atmosphere, supportive staff, and vibrant community of fellow students made it feel like a home from home.
