5. University of Leicester

The University of Leicester is fifth in the East Midlands, though its scores have dipped this year. Students benefit from learning resources that includes a Digital Reading Room where students and staff can discover, collaborate, and share ideas online and in person; a library open 24/5 in term time; and a digital library with more than 940,000 e-books and 75,000 e-journals.

The city of Leicester is as friendly as it is diverse: life is inexpensive and accommodation costs for students are among the lowest in the country.
