Great library, nice staff and many societies
Great university campus as well as great teaching. Students union is always a good time especially if you’re in a society. wifi around campus is perfect with no issues so far.
Great university with great modern campus
the campus is so modern! we do have a more traditional building (Hawthorne) but its perfect. you have to cross a wonderful bridge over a a canal to get into the campus, it has swans. staff go above and beyond to help you and the student union (SU) are very useful, there's always free events going on which I love. we are a 2 min walk away from the city centre and I love how everything is in one place. My twin sister goes to UOL and unlike DMU it is one of those city universities meaning that the buildings are spread across the city unlike emu which is a campus uni so its all in one place. This means she sometimes has to take a bus to get to lectures in different buildings, emu feels like a real community.
It’s alright the university experience has been alright
Very welcoming and diverse and very educational
It’s a good university however it’s cos of Covid you do feel a disconnect from learning
You will enjoy DMU, you won’t regret it
Amazing facilities at the Vijay Patel building, I really enjoy getting my work done here
Great university. Amazing support from the health and life sciences faculty.
It was a very basic experience, unless you are doing business, dance, or some form of design you aren't really provided with much.
Lovely campus and facilities with many different societies to join!
Dmu is quite good university in term of facilities but academia isn't quite good and tutor are not quite helpful
Good university, no complaints really.
Brilliant uni, great night life. The support is immense especially disability support. Can’t fault the uni.
Decent wifi, the university is nice to look at. Good food, but for students it is overpriced. The library is good, has a lot of books. Most of the tutors are good, others are completely useless.
Never choose this university it was really waste no support from anyone, no proper education and guidance, no job opportunities, no value for certificate, no professor has knowledge, no laptops for students, no proper labs. Everything fake only you will pay money and return nothing by wasting time and carrier. In Leicester university of Leicester is good one, dmu ranks last and useless. University professors don't put mark for own work, they have a group who takes money and do the assignment and project, for which will get mark. But it was waste of money and no meaning of education, no further carrier to students. The university here supports lot of fraud groups to earn money and they will get commission amount. Here loss is only for students
This review is a bit unique since COVID has substantially lowered my ability to interact with the university, the campus, it's clubs and activities. The campus is large and it's not very easy to find where your course building is situated until the university tells you, I haven't joined any clubs or societies so I can't speak on them. Same could be said for the Students Union and Careers Service. The only thing I did was purchase university clothes. The t-shirts are good quality, but the print is slowly being removed with each was, but the hoodies are nice. The university Wi-Fi is excellent, but that should be par for the course with any university.
I started university in 2018, and I have had so much help and I had enjoyed so much at university. It helped me grow into a better person, and I love my course.
Dmu provided so much support throughout my time
Good school overall. You get the help you need.
Great uni, unfortunately unable to experience in 2nd year due to COVID but first year was good
Great university that is socially inclusive and there are many fantastic activities to do.
Loved the campus. Of course, covid dampened the spirit. But DMU communications were great and kept getting updates regularly. Nice experience overall.
the campus is really nice and so far the course and the professors are great.
Really good university, lovely staff,
I think corona has affected certain facilities
Havent had much inperson interaction with the university due to covid so i cant say, but from what i have seen the facilities are really good
The universities gorgeous campus and updated and well maintained facilities are one of the main aspects that drew me to DMU and ot hasn't failed to impress. Although unfortunately onyl assigned to onr building away from the main campus (bede island) this space still give us access to wonderful, industry standard quipment, usually quiet spaces and security and safety of being out of public way. The outdoor portion of campus and the cafe/food court are lovely spaces to hang out and eat and feel safe and well looked after with security/staff on hand everywhere.
I think it is a great university however I wish we had a partial refund for the Covid-19 situation as online university is poor compared to real lectures and there is a huge price difference in the two experiences
Overall my experience has been good at the university, I have made loads of friends and feel that the lecturers are friendly. During Covid the level of support wasn't how I expected and could have been improved and some of my modules were Terribly taught but I cannot put the full blame on the university as they did try there hardest during a difficult time. Would definitely recommend this university to younger people
DMU has been helpful with their students this year
I feel as though I have chosen a really good uni. Met amazing people so far. Cant say much due to being a first year during covid.
Great experience with dmu and enjoyed being a student in it
Best university that could ever imagine.
It is very modern and has a lot of facilities to use that really help a lot
i haven’t been on campus much so i cannot give a honest review
Been great, lovely people, meet loads of people
Nice location and campus I love my art building
The university provides support in many areas however during coronavirus its difficult to utilise them.
Dmu has a very spacious beautiful campus and the facilities they provided before COVID was great. However since COVID happened DMU hasn’t really been great at resolving student issues with teaching and hopefully they’ll listen to student reps more as they are the voice of their cohorts
Its hard to write a review about these things when its been corona but I'm sure they're great when everything opens
My experience at this univeristy has been positive.
With the academic year being predominantly online, the few lessons I attende on campus were more than satisfactory. The facilities had all the required material to enhance my learning experience. The Student Union kept students involved in online activities and that says a lot about the effort the put into making the student experience worth it. During the year, the university held a few online career talks and meetings to help point us, the students, into the right career path. Overall, with how challenging the academic year has been, I believe the university was able to succeed in making my year a great one!
Great facilities for creative subjects. Super accessible
I haven’t really been able to make use of the university as much as i’d like to but from what I have seen it’s been okay
I enjoy going to de Montfort uni, the staff are great and helpful, they care a lot about the students abs the buildings are all nice and accessible.
DMU has a rang of societies and many facilities on campus. It is very close to the city centre and everything is walking distance.
The best university for my course
Very organised, lovely staff and facility
Helpful, understanding about your situation
DMU is a great place to make new friends. The staff members are helpful and friendly
I’ve really enjoyed my experience at DMU
Lovely place, would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to study In Leicester
Had such a good time here at DMU. Lots to do and lots of societies you can join
Great University,friendly staff
As a first year student at DMU I feel that Merlin Heights is the best option considering the price and the distance from the university, it also has very good facilites such as the Sky lounge to chill out and watch films and the games room being my favourite because of the pool table. The rooms and kitchens are perfect for a first year student too as they are nice and spacious and cosy with a nice modern touch. The staff are also very helpful and polite and make sure your questions are always answered.
My first year experience at dmu has been very good despite the pandemic and not being able to go in for in person seminars for the majority of the year. Facilities such as the library are good.
DMU has many study spaces throughout the campus which have been very helpful
Good university staff are amazing
Very conveniently located which is good because all aspects of uni life are fulfilled in the area
Haven’t experienced much because of Covid, but so far the school looks to be a nice place with good learning facilities.
Great support for students especially for internationals
Brilliant uni for all 3 years of studying here.
With DMU situated in the leicester town centre, accessibility is easy between campus and town centre.
Enjoyed my first year but second year being completely online is a shame.
Its a good university with city campus and amazing facilities.
Good university helpful teachers
Great campus with many facilities and easily accessible to all
Very nice experience overall, welcoony staff and a lot of accessible resources
DMU is a well rounded university with loads of clubs and extra curriculum activities available, but the support they provided during the coronavirus pandemic was not acceptable
Good university. Excellent facilities and overall great experience.
Dmu is such a diverse place with people from different backgrounds! They have a lot to offer such as global trips and societies to join
Good university with good facilities
Tutors are all amazing and really helpful
Fantastic faculty and really modern, clean buildings. Most of the staff really do care
I study online. But my fee is the same like study in uni
Amazing for student satisfaction!!
Great university overall. With lot of supports available.
The university is very organised. They have very good communication. DMU’s online system is also good.
very good university, great staff & very helpful! student union advice email can be very hard to get a response from but there are other ways of contacting them. clubs & societies have a wide range of options unfortunately due to covid many of them couldn't run properly this year.
With covid19 affecting the whole experience with campus life, there is not much to say. But with the few weeks, from the beginning of the school year, it wasn't so bad but clearly, COVID19 has robbed me of my DeMontfort University school and campus life experience. Hope we all come out of this pandemic stronger and happier.
Lovely experience, staff members really friendly and kind
I was really surprised with the DMU facilities and all the support provided to the students. I highly recommend it to all students.
I believe i made the right choice in choosing DMU however, due to the current climate of the pandemic, facilities have understandably been closed. It’s a shame, but i do hope in the near future i am able to gain a full experience of what this university has to offer.
Its a great university with many opportunities even during times like this. Every lecturer is helpful and is there for you when you need them
great uni to go to for socials and studying product design
It's a good uni but we've had no support during the pandemic which is really bad. The teachers haven't been helpful and some have even given us wrong information for assignments and when given a bad grade I was given next to no feedback to help improve
University is good, covid has restricted alot however before that it was very fun a variety of clubs are open.
DMU is such a supportive university, with plenty of opportunities
A great university with good facilities for all courses
I enjoyed my time at university and the campus was perfect. It’s in a great location and my teachers were friendly and supportive. I also loved my dmu global trip to Canada which was my highlight of university.
DMU has a great diverse range of societies, and students so you can always learn something new
Uni is alright you know, I really like the campus. Very nice and modern
Great place, really good teachers and people
It’s great, really great place
Very fine for all courses, near to city centre, staffs are very Friendly and they are providing good facilities
Good educational facilities with lots of activities.
Its a very beautiful university with some beautifully built buildings and facilities for students around the campus. Staffs are friendly and helpful.
Very good university and good for international
Dmu seem to spend more on marketing than they do in teaching. Most of our equipment in CEM was either obsolote or unreliable. It made study very stressful as you would struggle to find information on the equipment you were using, and wouldn't always know if it would work when you needed it.
Coming to DMU was the best decision I have made! I can’t find any faults! The facilities are amazing and the accommodation I can’t speak enough of! I have made friends for life through societies and got endless support throughout my studies from the university! Especially during the current pandemic the tutors have been working extra hard to ensure we are getting the best learning and experience we possibly can!
middle of a pandemic right now so very limited experiences
FROM A PARENT> Students in their final year have been hit hard by the pandemic and treated appallingly by this university. Those whose courses don't translate easily to online learning, like my daughter, had barely any contact from tutors, despite chasing them up relentlessly, emails and calls went unanswered, Which is unforgivable. I'm assuming they were still being paid?? The year simply fizzled out.This was the end to all those years of education. The culmination of so much dedication. For what? Finishing an art degree in your bedroom on your own laptop. No 'industry grade software' here! But no refunds!! Courses ended in March with no studio facilities or access to professional tech for art students in their final year, plus no degree shows, no networking opportunities, no industry links..none of the shiny, lovely things they wave at students on open days. Shameful really. But they're just students, which means absolutely nothing in the UK. SAVE YOUR MONEY
Graphic Design and Illustration course is led by tutors who are heavily biased and bully students that they dislike. It creates a course culture of enabling bad behaviour, and no one is ever held to account for harassment. The tutors pick one or two students whose work they like, and put all the time and opportunities into those few who fit their house style. God forbid you produce work slightly different to those around you; prepare for the tutors to try and make you fit their mould and produce work exactly like everyone else. Poor, poor mental health care from the uni as a result. Avoid.
All in all a very good university and depending on which department you are placed in the staff are extremely friendly and helpful
Tried to get comms over postragrd courses, no reply or acknowldgement and sent the following complaint by email: Dear DMU, I have to say I am quite appalled at the lack of communication despite filling in several eforms, email correspondence and even an application for postgraduate study. I have had no feedback at all, and the postgrad open day is today. Just give me reasons why I should even contemplate study with you now, if this is the poor standard set? Kind regards
Great campus vibe with loads of study areas as well as areas to socialise. Inclusive atmosphere and lecturers and other members of staff are kind and helpful.
Nice place! Lectures are great and lots of support.
As a parent of a child who attended this university and dropped out at the end of first year, I recommend that, if you care about your child’s mental health, avoid this university. Everything looks good on paper but they are hopeless at helping students with mental health issues. At the end of what would have been my child’s 2nd year they did not even know that my child had dropped out! All they seem to care about is getting as many students as possible to enrol, therefore, as much income as possible.
como serán las cases de la universidad durante el primer semestre
DMU is a very diverse university, ranging from the subjects taught to the people on campus - I've interacted with a lot of people on campus ranging from various walks of life to technical strengths and all of them have one thing in common; doing the absolute best they can in their studies and personal time. All of my lecturers are superb at what they teach and will almost move heaven and earth to assist you - even if it's not directly related to your course. The campus is clean and modern, and the facilities are some of the best when comparing to other universities I've seen (such as the 24/7/365 library). Being a computing student, I found that there were a lack of societies for people like me (apart from course-related societies such as the DMU Hackers, Robotics Club etc.). Another issue I found is that the careers service isn't always great at best, but I have a feeling that this may change over time. All in all, DMU is an excellent university and I'm glad that I had picked it.
Good courses, friendly staff. Amazing societies everyone was friendly. The library has great facilities as well as learning services which are really helpful
I made an enquiry CIPD (level 7) accredited Master’s program in late 2019. Last date of application was May 2020. Due to Covid related over-occupation, I dropped the idea of taking a course this year. One fine day, DMU franchisee contacted me and insisted I submit a late application if I'm still interested. I asked them a lot of pre-application questions, including the expected travel in 2nd Semester/Q1 of 2020. We had 6-7 email exchanges and they also called 2-3 times. I felt very motivated, changed my mind and I submitted a late application. Till date my application has not been replied, despite reminders. Few days back I got an email with access info to DMU library, and yesterday I got invitation to a webinar - the webinar is scheduled for 29 June and invitation comes on 2 July. I'm ignoring the recent emails (it could be spam). However, I'm disappointed with the process I went through with DMU contacts for the admission.
I am doing a part time GDL here distance learning over two years. It is good value for money and the study weekends are very good. The quality of the teaching is very high as is the study materials. There are some IT problems but they worked hard to resolve them. In relation to COVID19 the university I feel has been fair to everyone allowing online assessment which I have just completed this week. Given I have health issues, my health and well being is very important. I think the university have been fair and to be honest why would you want to sue them as others have said on here because it's a Force Majeure it's not their fault. 5 Star teaching. It may not be London or hip. It may not be a crème de la crème university but they have a fab law team here.
DMU has great facilities for design courses, the building is really nice. the workshop there is too small for the size of the university though. But their lecturers are very helpful
COVID 19 handled bad by lecturers with strikes how unfortunate our fees are not valued.
everything is perfect ，tutors are very passionate and friendly
Good university with great facilities, teaching is good. Nothing was really poor. Overall happy experience.
I was apprehensive about attending DMU as it was chosen through clearing for me , however my experience at the university has been pleasant so far.
Very good uni with great support
Really good university with good facilities. Offers load of support if you need it.
I'm suing De Montfort University for selling me a Mickey Mouse postgraduate Course not accredited not recognised as a teaching qualification. Comments welcome in Twitter syaa02
Its an amazing university in every aspect! I love the campus and my lecturers.
Love De Montfort! Super cultural and always has new experiences on offer
My uni is great. Offers great teaching, services and opportunities! The teaching and studying spaces are good, too.
Amazing so far! Apart from 3 weeks of lecturer strikes that held back out learning, everything has been good
Good uni not some work still need to be done but yh
They refused to give part-refunds after the coronovirus. Selfish, frustrating and unwilling to compromise. Everyone is struggling with the virus and they're not accomodating whatsoever.
Friendly staffs and beautiful campus.
Nice campus, everything is very close and together, Also relatively close to the city centre.
The university isn’t bad it’s just the accommodation (Ben Russell) the worst!
Love my open campus with beautiful architecture.
Great university facilities at hand
University is the best. Theres so much to offer. The staff are nice and friendly.
Great uni with broad range of facilities and staff which are passionate about their work
Good university and very diverse
WiFi is a bit picky at times, sometimes doesn't work. The physical aspect of DMU is great, but it doesn't help that they keep cutting funding to courses that aren't math/science/English because, as stereotypical views go, creative courses don't bring in money, which couldn't be more wrong. Get the funding aspect right and DMU would be a great university.
Not too bad, some areas need upgrading
While I'm not able to compare this University to others, I will say it is the best possible choice I could've made by coming here. I have enjoyed almost every minute of being here and I know that if I ever come to an issue I will be able to rely on staff and students to aid me.
Great experience, friendly atmosphere, lovely campus.
Upon coming to dmu, I have enjoyed my time, especially with getting involved with the DMU Jazz Band and being part of the committee, helping run the band and being able to play music as well.
Great experience and facilities. Could have better clubs and societies
Great WiFi lecturers are very knowledgeable and helpful
DMU is an excellent university with incredible teachers and lecturers. They treat all students fairly and equally and are very helpful when you feel the stress of studying. There are plenty of study spaces and lots of communities to join. It is a bit of a pain to connect to their internet but I'm not sure if it's them or my laptop (Or that I'm just useless with computers!). Overall DMU is a great establishment and would recommend to anyone that wishes to go into higher education.
Hardly get told of any social spaces or activities available
Unorganised university which is more interested on making things look pretty rather than improving services. I have had botched assessments, been assigned the wrong modules, to name the lease.
I’m not enjoying myself at all
Pretty good uni lecturers are helpful
There's many societies to join and if you can't find what you're looking for you can create your own! The only improvement I'd make is varying the employers brought in for careers fairs as when I went most of the employers were looking for law or finance students for internships/apprenticeships which isn't great if you study something else
Love the campus and the facilities available to get on with my various assignments. Most lecturers are friendly and keep lecture interesting. Don't personally use the union as I find drinks to be expensive when they do events and music to be generic r n b Lots of societies available
Everything I expected from the university experience just do not feel their is enough support for students
Not bad wouldn't exactly shout about it
The uni is very modern and has very good facilities.
the mentors and welfare have been great. However the wait times are really long and make it hard to manage work and mental health when there is a 14week wait for counciling. the course itself the facilities are really good and the workshops are well organised with knowledgeable staff
University has been a great experience and I have enjoyed my course as well as the social aspect.
Great campus and facilities accessible more often than needed. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Enjoying the uni so far, good social life, course is very interesting and the staff are very good.
DMU is an amazing university. The best staff and courses!
De Montfort is very good, if you want a studio. Do yourself a favour and go to code. Same rooms, cheaper and has better facilities
is a very good experience really enjoy it, but the student union is there but no actual use the su club isn't the best. there is a job centre for part-time or placement, but the centre isn't the best as it didn't really give a clear direction to what and how the centre work
i like it, there is nothing that i do not like at the moment,
Very good! I’m enjoying my time there.
The campus has all the facilities you'll ever need, from art stores, dining halls, to a 24hr Library plenty of computers and graphic tablets to use. There are a range of clubs and societies to choose. The SU always keep you up to date with the university, as well as the city itself. There is always help when you need it, especially when it comes to your career. The Wifi is very good, you have access to it throughout the whole campus; including gyms and youth centres.
Can’t get onto the WiFi and it’s slow, limited amount of societies there is nothing art based there for art and design students. Facilities are good for the building I study in. Students union can be helpful but in my class they aren’t, they don’t want to do or say anything in case of upsetting lecturers. Careers service from what I’ve experienced is great, there is a whole department for every course to go to and use, careers fairs, guidance they couldn’t be more helpful.
I don't attend any of the societies to know what they are like. The Student Union are hard to get ahold of, and don't seem to to anything. They have no sense of presence (not necessarily a bad thing, I hate unions) Everything else is decent.
I am an alumnus and i suggest, Never go for this university.
I entered the university as a student from a underrepresented and disadvantaged background, and I believe the university needs to develop an approach for identifying and reporting bullying. Some lecturers have been known to disregard or distort the negative impact of harmful behaviour, and blame or dehumanize the victim -- I was excluded from participating in the university as a whole during the first day.
I've never used the SU or careers service so can't comment on those. The clubs and societies don't feel very inclusive to new people (or at least the ones I tried), but that's a bit beyond the universities control really. Campus is nice, internat is incredible (hitting about 350mbps in the games labs)
Amazing universe, there are so many services and opportunities!
Good university but they were in the mid of building new areas which effected studying. Good course and student union was good, if not sticky underfoot.
Well specified uni, but more needs to be done to support students academically.
It’s really really really really good I recommend it to everyone I do!!!!!!!!!!!
Fantastic uni. Loved every minute and if I am ever in Leicester I always return and it feels like home.
Not good if u r a brown or black skin.Nobody takes intesrest.worst University pl don't go n fall in a mess
The reception open my parcel without permission today, which really annoyed me
If you need a degree I guess you could go here wouldn’t advise it though lol
As an adult autistic student in was encouraged by the reviews. However I have had to take the finance department to the 3rd stage of a complaint just to get an correct invoice. I have spent more time in the last year trying to get help from their 'disabilities ' service then I have on the actual work I have ment to be doing. And they dont even take the complaints seriously. Its sickening way to treat autistic people. Avoid.
the big tv in the middle is very cool
The university has great facilities and the tutors are very supportive and flexible with you r final project. The course content is very varied and covers all topics in psychology.
the campus itself is always very clean and looks good
Nice campus, enjoyed spend afternoon in cafe doing works.
lovely campus, everyone is freindly
Don't get too hung up on university rankings because they really don't matter. As long as it's good for your course then it's good. There's a thing called DMU Global where you get the chance to experience international opportunities and learn new languages. 24 hour library which is so so useful. You can also hire laptops to use if you don't have your own. There's a cafe and vending machines in the library in case you get hungry. Standard Eduroam wifi which is good, you may have to search for how to log in and stuff though. There are lots of sports clubs and societies which you will learn more about during the freshers fair. Overall it's not a bad uni.
Amazing university, providing best facilities for students all over the world
Everyone here is very open and friendly. There's always an approachable person to help fix whatever problem you have.
Societies seem quite disorganised and lack publicity
The campus is really close to my accommodation and everything is close together. Its also in the city centre which is great.
Im fresher so i dont have a clear opinion yet so..
The worst University ever. It seems to have a flashy new building but no a lot else. Students who cannot get into any other University will be welcomed here. The best thing is the nursing course. However, when it comes to entry requirements it's more overseas students that native speaker. The courses/grades and marking system are all adapted so if your English is well below par you'll still receive high grades and qualifications. In other words a degree from this University is worth nothing. The teaching staff are not academics. Avoid applying to this University.
Terrible service. Slow admission. I am an international student and there's alot of stuffs need to be done before studying abroad. They said that they only received my application form 2 days ago while i submitted it 3 weeks ago, and still haven't gotten any feedbacks. Worst uni ever. Wouldn't even rate them if its possible.
Do not make what could be the biggest mistake of your life, the absolute worst university in Leicester alone, not to mention the country. Poor university that promote themselves on TV. Desperate and tragic.
The university is very social especially with the SU and constant events and parties.
Good for sports opportunity’s and travelling abroad. Many opportunity’s presenter throughout the year.
Fantastic opportunities with DMU global. Excellent facilities including a 24/7 library and computer labs.
An Amazing university for a variety of courses which welcomes and caters for all walks of life. With amazing society’s and sports teams there’s always a way to have fun and make friends outside of your degree !!
Uni has amazing WiFi connection throughout campus and many sporting societies for a variety of different people. The uni has loads of opertunities abroad and during holidays like DMU Global and other trips and placements
Amazing facilities and a brilliant city. Lively and great nightlife scene backed up by a thriving culture and good infrastructure. The uni campus is wonderful and the teaching is 1st class
Most wonderful experience, supportive team, could not be happier
A very looking forward University for employment and offering opportunities to its students. Great communication between the tiers of members of staff from the Vice Chancellor to Lecturers and Student Union Elected Officers
I’ve absolutely loved the whole experience of uni- my Foundation Degree with Leicester College was so interesting and provided me with knowledge that I doubt I’d have been able to get anywhere else; the facilities I was able to access at De Montfort were instrumental to passing my course (the library was to die for, the support I had access to was always a safety net for me if I ever needed to access it); and I’ve really grown as a person (as cheesy as that sounds) thanks to the placements that I’ve been on for my course (most recently at a Special Needs school for children) and being about to join the amazing DSU Game of Thrones Society; the WiFi on campus was excellent; the staff at the DSU have always been so lovely to talk to and helpful with the issues that I needed their help with. Coming to De Montfort University, and taking my Foundation Degree, going on my placements, and joining the Game of Thrones society have all been some of the best things I’ve ever done with my life.
De Montfort is a very average university that sells itself to be something it’s not. Although investing a lot of money recently, the reparations haven’t seem to have done much good. The student union was closed all throughout my first year, and after it’s ‘grand’ opening, apparently it had changed very little from before. One of the reasons I chose DMU was because it offered one of the best rates of getting a placement year, although the placement year seem to be next to useless. In a meeting where I wanted assistance with applications I was essentially told just to apply to everything and good luck. Most of my enjoyment from university has come from the people I have lived with, and that could happen anywhere in the world.
Emails are never replied to. The date for grades being handed back is always being postponed. Curriculum feels like it can bend to whatever the tutor fancies doing. On the Drama degree Adam has been known to mark people down for asking too many questions leading to a whole class being unsure on what on earth we were actually doing. Don't care what I graduate with at this point. Just want to leave
Awful, very little support networks for students from tutors. However lectures some good and easy to follow some not. Campus and facilities are good.
Coming to the end of my first year, Hate this Uni, you have no support from tutors with work, there's lots of last minute changes and teachers giving your mearly hours to complete assignments because they "forget" to release them yet expect you to complete them on time. some of my module tutors don't even know how to teach the modules, had one teaching us how to design a website, we realized she has no clue how to work visual studios, there no help for first years, its appalling, there are limited lab computers and software which costs you a few hundred pound can only be accessed on a few computers which for students such as myself living at home this is really hard to work with. you have to pay for your printing, you'd think my £9000 would cover all my printing but no, and don't get me started on the parking, there are no parking facilities for students who travel each day, I have to pay £2 an hour some days costing £12 as a student this is almost impossible to cover.. waste of money
Lovely campus with fantastic facilities throughout
Don't go to this Uni I came away destroyed! ageist tutors who were unhelpful and really let the establishment down, they are getting away with wasting peoples money and not providing the service, so log your lesson content, and if they fail you? sue them under the sale of goods act!! oh I forgot,,there is NO discipline/respect in lessons kick off your shoes leave coat on arrive late and crack on with your noisy breakfast foods in class is the moto of this UNI. The most frustrating ongoing experience ever.
Awesome lecturers and social life alike!
I am very disappointed with Ivan Stafford since he was picking on my friend due to him not attending lesson but he had a valid reason not to go he is a law seminar teacher who ever has this person meet up and we can start a protest.
Lovely university, that offers so much. Brilliant, welcoming atmosphere with an extremely friendly student union and staff.
The campus is newly built and looks amazing, the societies are amazing as I have joined DMU snow sports society and will be going on a trip to Andorra with them
I'd rather throwaway 8 grand in the Leicester Canals, than go here
good facilities and library will come in handy for peaceful and easy study
The University is beyond unsatisfactory in regards to maintaining the welfare of their students, Their Healthcare Science Audiology course was poorly structured and managed and lecturers were spiteful and unhelpful.
Spent £8000 to do the Legal Practice Certificate part time, distance learning. Poor support and although some very good tutors, staff treating mature students with the same amused contempt as they obviously treat undergraduates. Just because you are a good lawyer does not make you are good teacher! Off colour jokes and use of profane language by tutors! One tutor was so sarcastic and cold, they were complained about they were replaced in the second year. Even one of the exam invigilators was horrible and upset students. Never felt one could ask a query without being made to feel stupid, by the bad tutors.
Great fun but not the best careers advice
Racist......... Avoid at all cost
Brilliant support from services and from lectures and tutors. Great student union. Facilities have a lot to offer and everything is utilised. Great atmosphere round the uni, both academic and social.
Poor organisation from the admission staff, a lot of unqualified and unprofessional personal. Probably good uni but needs better organisation and cooperation.
Buildings are big with enough space meny clubs to join and internet is fast
Amazing university, the Game Art Design course is brilliant and all the support I have gotten in my first months has been great.
No one knows who the student union is. have to install a program for WiFi on campus, system is complex and never works
Did the LLM Employment Law and Practice by distance learning. Paid £8000 for a bundle of handbooks to work through, many of which did not arrive in good time for the essay. Little support from lecturers because they are too busy with lectures. Failed to uphold student privacy and data protection.
i absolutely hated every second of this place. Staff dont care and professors are worse. An incredibly demoralising experience that made me loath my chosen subject
A very high and upcoming university. Very focused on ensuring your future. Not just your degree while you're there.
Love DMU! As a shy and timid first year dmu held events to help and encourage others like myself to come out of our shells! Thus I would highly recommend the uni to anyone considering going
Great university, everyone so welcoming and friendly
To the master degrees is not a good choice. I did not received the proper education or the help. The tutor left my emails without a reply and in the end he left us without a reason. No classes, no tutorials for weeks we had to work without any guidelines.
Great people and times but facilities and setting up for real world seems lacking compared to what i've seen/heard elsewhere.
Probably the worst university i have ever been too. I attended for my MSc Engineering, very few Electronics lecturers actually help you pass exams most of them don't care. Very little contact time and almost impossible to contact any staff outside of the lecture. The Mechatronics is even worse as they just send you links to information that is on the web from other universities. As i said for Engineering avoid at all costs.
Nightlife is vibrant in the city of Leicester's size. Clubs and societies are getting better each year. However there doesn't seem like you could stumble upon spontaneous and random events on campus that help create a dynamic university social world.
Really enjoy the uni, great place to work, study and socialise
Altogether quite nice. Round for improvement though
A great campus uni right near the heart of leicester city centre, which is vibrant and full of culture, with different events and things happening everyday. The lecturers that I have seen are really helpful and really know what they are talking about and have been very welcoming and helped us to relax into our first year of the course.
Really enjoy being at this university! It's good even though people bash it because it's not red brick, but its a very good campus.
Absolutely brilliant. Amazing atmosphere and a decent su. My course is fab and the teachers are all very friendly. Lots of opportunities
Campus wide wifi, never had a problem once I got it all set up. Career opportunities are great, really high employment rate at the end of courses, jobs fairs throughout the year, motivational speakers that come in, volunteer opportunities to enhance the CV and give back to the community, lots of part time jobs available as well as a dedicated temping agency (though I didn't find that very useful). Students union seems alright, not hugely visible but I suppose they'd be there if needed. Loads of clubs and societies, went to the stalls at the beginning of the year and there are so many to pick and choose from, some are very serious and competitive others are a bit of fun, so there's something for every-one.
Amazing uni, with fab facilities and a great social life, especially the sports and societies!
Loving every minute of this University
Great uni there is alot of help and guidance available.
Excellent teaching facilities and staff. Loads of societies, some really interesting ones i.e. the skydiving society. Generally a really happy feel & atmosphere, great place to be!
Great academically lacking on the social side
SU could have better events and more variety in societies not just course based or culturally based
The course I am doing is fairly unorganised but I canny fault the university itself, nice and pleasant place to learn
Only a first year and my experience of DMU so far has been great
Still at uni, but i like the place, its a fun, bright uni with lots of brilliant people and plenty of facilities.
So far, so good in my second year.
The placements and frontrunner internships make the student experience at De Montfort successful in terms of career building - there are so many societies that are also great at getting you prepared for industry, such as the Demon Media helping potential journalists. The campus is also lovely, and the lively city of leicester is great to explore and shop in. The bars and nightlife are great because you can choose how casual or dressed-up you want to go, and we're never short of music or other types of culture in leicester. - for instance our Diwali festival, the theatres, and all the events DMU arts students have on. Also because we have two universities it means that our city is really ready-made for students.
I've been at DeMontFort for my Foundation Art and Design course and will be returning to do a degree in game art and design, which is a testament to how good this uni is. I can't vouch for other subjects, but the staff on my course were mostly great, and the facilities I could use were impressive. The library is useful, although the printing system could use work. The campus itself is a pleasant place to be: there's a genuine sense of community and the place feels clean, modern and well kept. Overall my experience was a fantastic one, and I am looking forward to returning in september.
One of the best University Ever enjoyed every single minutes of my first year.
The students union could be a little better for during the day such as showing football matches etc.
Sports teams and societies are a massive part of DMU life, so if you want to make the most of it then join a team or a society. We have fab themed socials and loads of fun.
Awesome university, with fabulous facilities. The student welfare team are also fantastic, and the campus is always a hub for social activity. 24/7 library around exams, and the lecturers really care about their students.
Awesome uni, felt at home since day one. Very social and loads of opportunites!
Great staff, great students.. Nothing to complain about, best three years of my life
Great university lovely campus . Facillities excellent has even got a gym and swimming pool .Course im studying is excellent studying youth and communities. Lots of opperertunaties to travel with DMU global to enhance studies .
Awesome university as it has great accommodation and has good facilities.
I've just finished my first year at De Montfort and it has been a spectacular experience. There's a very big range of societies to join and it's definitely important to join atleast one so that you can get to know more people, learn something new or continue to practice an activity you already love. I signed up for Rugby, Salsa, Taekwondo and Pole Dance which keeps my week pretty busy but you have to remember that you won't have as much time to do these things when you're in full-time employment. Apart from societies, DMU has fantastic opportunities to volunteer, do internships or educate yourself further. The SquareMile has opportunities to volunteer more locally (on campus or within the city of Leicester itself) but if you're feeling more adventurous you can apply for an opportunity with DMU Global. Through DMU Global I have volunteered in India and I am currently writing this review from South Korea where I am doing summer school! The possibilities at DMU are endless.
It's an amazing university in a vibrant city with so many opportunities for students! I fell in love on my first open day and have had no regrets since.
The uni is great, located in a multicultural society which embraces other culture.
Fantastic facilities, courses and many easily accessible experience building opportunities through frontrunners and #DMUglobal, my one complaint is the wi fi is a bit hard to connect to on the phone.
DMU has helped me become much more confident and aided me in many ways. I would not have finished first year with a 2:1, very nearly a first if it wasn't for all the incredible help and lecturing from the staff.
It has outstanding facilities and the teachers provide a solid grounding to the teaching in every module and uses different teaching methods to engage wiv the students
Great Uni, so glad i chose to study there
Good city life university, diverse in many ways and provides you with everything you could need and more :)
DMU houses a fantastic range of facilities and offers a wide range of societies so every student can have an enjoyable experience in a relaxed learning environment
Very friendly university with a wide range of subjects that bring a strange collection of people together. Close campus with a large amount of accomidation very near by helps to make it seem like its own small town. Only issues is the boring nature of Leicester city itself.
Brilliant uni we're I've learnt a hell of a lot about my course and about myself! I made memories that will last a lifetime at this university!
Set in a busy city with lots to do as well as a great night life. Teachers are amazing and the campus is ultra modern and beautiful.
I have met amazing people and really learnt a lot in my subject, its been amazing.
Moving to dmu was the best thing I did the faculty are amazing our VC is top notch and our societies are out of this world! We are just gonna keep on climbing!
DMU is a fairly big campus, but not huge! It has a great atmosphere and really friendly staff. An incredible large amount of career opportunities and plenty of sports and societies to keep you entertained in your spare time. Top university for me!
mental first year, lots achieved, bring on the second!
Buildings are fantastic and modern - notably Kimberlin Library and Hugh Aston buildings. Could do with more scientific rooms and equipment, but what is there is good quality. Fantastic Career Opportunities with the Frontrunners placement scheme. Plenty of affordable clubs and pubs near campus and wifi is available in all buildings. The students union has a lot of popular events on but it's not really my scene personally.
De Montfort has helped my grow so much as a person and academically and I wouldn't change anything about my 3 years! If it wasn't for DMU I wouldn't know I was dyslexic
Brilliant university. So glad i choose to come here
I've loved every second of my first year at DMU! Met some amazing people and cannot wait for September, to start the next term!
Although I didn't find my course as suited to me as I first thought, that wasn't any downfall to the university. They array of help on offer, the facilities and the campus is second to non.
Amazing atmosphere, amazing education. Really in depth tutoring with the right amount of independence.
It is a brilliant uni with great help from the lecturers. So much information available to helo you study and prepare for the exams.
A great friendly place to study, no matter what the degree, able to connect with everyone
DMU has given me 2 great years, and am looking forward to my 3rd year. It really does have a great atmosphere and feel about it.
A great university, with even greater people!
I'm going into my final year and being in a society as great as Acapella has really brought me out of my shell
Tutors in the Accounting and Finance department are brilliant. Always willing to help and always available. The student union is very disappointing as it is quite expensive and i wouldn't say it was 'for the students'. There are a huge range of societies and if there isn't one that suits you then you can go about setting up your own. Overall, the university as a whole is very good and is growing each year.
Very multicultural, with huge amounts of opportunities for those who are willing to put in the effort. Facilities are always improving
A good all round university. Great place to study
De Montfort Uni has so much to offer that just isn't offered at other universities. I am having the best time here
Great campus, Good range of societies and activities, Good gym
Love this uni. It feels like home. There are exciting new projects the university is creating. These are amazing opportunities and unique to this uni. Recommend to everyone!
Dmu is a amazing place to study whether it is Fashion,Law, Business, Graphics I.T and etc Dmu is best place to be. Not far from shops , Leica Market or Highcrossand even not far from night clubs and cocktail bars too. The socials are amazing.come to the open day this week.
Great place, lovely atmosphere, always feel at home when I'm on campus
Best thing I ever did coming to this uni. The start of my forever life
I've had a good experience here but didn't think the teaching set up was great
There is no way I can fault the uni, apart from my course having one rubbish lecture who doesn't care for his students, other than that there is nothing they won't help you with, and the general atmosphere wherever you go on campus is always a good one.
wish the SU was more popular as it's pretty dead each week but the campus is brilliant with great facilities
An amazing organisation and I couldn't rate or recommend them highly enough !
great course, great lectures, great lecturers, great university and great societies.
Love my course but not a massive fan of the social life in Leicester
love DMU. They are always enabling us to do well
Interesting diversity of content taught, but poor organisation and not an inclusive university experience.
Overall very good always rooms for improvements thou
My experience so far has been wonderful but that would be down to my flatmates. DMU itself has been a let down. They aren't organised and have messed up some of my coursework. I have had issues with tutors and have complained but I am yet waiting on results. I don't feel like I have had any support from DMU at all.
love this university, it's great for creative courses
Had a great first year so far. Great uni
Don't go to this uni. The staff are appalling. Nice campus but the lack of organisation from staff from many departments will ruin it for you
DeMomtfort is not in France
Very friendly. Great support network Lectures are really helpful Most of the work is on our VLE system Great location in the city -near to everything Great city - easy to get to other places Good public transport Loads of new buildings. All the old ones are in the process of being upgraded Loads of new facilities State of the art medical equipment New practice medical wards Great councilling system Doctors on site Near to 2 parks Good security Cheap to live in the city Great new gym with cheap rates for students Lots of societies Lots of SU funding available Encourages events Great student radio and media
People tend not to have heard of it. Because its an ex-poly some people can be snobby about it. Su could be bigger and have a bigger range of societies.
art and design foundation
Good workshops, good time with tutors, peer assessments are useful, support with uni applications
Don't know where my money's going, no support with jobs, no student life for foundation students
