    Overall:

    Lots of society’s on offer, library is great. I enjoy uni life very much

    Most lecturers are generally very approachable and solid teachers. Module content is great.
    Location:
    Perfect location in the city
    Accommodation:
    My accommodation was great first year, it was modern and well looked after. My house second year is the same.
    Settling in:
    Settled in straight away, everyone is great

    Overall:
    Enjoyable so far, and the course is what is says
    University:
    There's a lot of socialising
    Course:
    Its a useful course, we learn a multitude of skills and the lectures, labs are informative. However, not all the lecturerers are great at what they do.
    Location:
    Convenient, it's located very close to the city Centre too
    Accommodation:
    Great, but not the best. If you need WiFi, I suggest getting data
    Settling in:
    The university helped a lot, with welcoming events and allowing students on the same course to communicate before the course started

    Overall:
    I think it’s an alright university, I mean it must be to have a gold TEF award.
    University:
    It’s alright. I havn’t accesses much of the services except the library which is ok.
    Course:
    The teachers seem approachable and reply to my emails really quickly. The timetable is a bit annoying as I commute so sometimes I have one lesson and have to pay for the train for just one hour.
    Location:
    It’s aweosme becuase it’s in the city centre near all the shops and the train station which makes its so easy to go to and from the uni.
    Accommodation:
    I don’t know becuase I didn’t get accomodation. But by what I’ve heard it’s not that good.
    Settling in:
    I don’t know.

    Overall:
    If you want to choose Leicester as a city- just go to University of Leicester. My boyfriend is going there and comparing that to De Montfort University... it is like comparing husky to chihuahua. And I am serious.
    University:
    I’m giving this rate because I am not a member of active uni life. We have got a lots of people on the campus at any time during the day and night. We have got people in library everyday at 2 and 3 am. They are crazy.
    Course:
    I have small hours during the week. Only one lecture from each module per week. Modules are boring, so are our assessment. I don’t feel like this uni is trying to teach me something and give me any knowledge.
    Location:
    Location of DMU is pretty decent. Really close to almost everything. A few minutes to city centre, two minutes to Tesco, dominos, park, shops. I couldn’t ask for more. Location is just perfect. 10/10. We have got even GP on the campus.
    Accommodation:
    I am giving 5 start because they deserve it. Everything is just right. I have found no minuses. Great quality, location is perfect for me- so close! But price is not the lowest, could be better but still with this money I have more than enough.
    Settling in:
    I am totally not settled after over a month. And I don’t think this is going to change. Uni does not doing anything to find out how we are doing or if we struggling with something or not.

    Overall:
    .
    University:
    University like isn’t as stressful as I originally planned. Everything has been laid out in a way that gives students enough time to prepare for lecture as well as assignment and exam due dates.
    Course:
    I’ve had the absolute time of my life so far, the year has gone so quickly and I’ve met so many like-minded and amazing people here. I can’t wait to come back for a second year and I never want the experience to end!
    Location:
    The university is at the heart of the city, in close proximity to everything so I’m able to buy a bite to eat on my way to my campus
    Accommodation:
    The student accomudation surprised me, it was bigger than originally imagined a lot of space to move around and get on with some work. The staff are also always on hand to help students with their parcels or general enquiries.
    Settling in:
    There were previous tenants and volunteers that assisting in me moving in, as I could do this alone due to the amount of baggage I brought with me.

    Overall:
    It's alright, however spoiled by the new students coming from London and a few lecturers who don't always explain things here and there
    University:
    Lots of local activities, shops and nightlife to engage in. On campus club 'injunction' also.
    Course:
    First year timetable is rather spacious, lectures only on monday, tuesday and thursday. Most lecturers explain things well, module is very broad compared to software engineering.
    Location:
    Close to town
    Accommodation:
    Not living in uni accomodation and never have, stayed in private accomodation. Kept neat and tidy. Do not house share with girls.
    Settling in:
    Wanted to get away from home so settling in was very easy. Others have had it harder however.

    Overall:
    Great if you're looking for a night out, lots of memories made but better welfare would make such an improvement!!
    University:
    Great for nightlife, not for people that go to uni to learn.
    Course:
    Module quality depended completely on the lecturer running it. Therefore, some were excellent and inspiring modules whilst others made you lose all interest in law!!
    Location:
    Leicester seems to be full of crime and drugs.
    Accommodation:
    Stayed in a uni approved halls. Several police investigations, raids and drug dogs always taking place.
    Settling in:
    As a result of terrible student housing and insufficient university welfare support, my mental health plummeted and it wasn't until half way through second year that I felt I "settled in" to university life.

    Overall:
    Everything
    University:
    Quite easy
    Course:
    Most of the teachers are good in teaching, there are a lot of students to relationate with. The courses are a lot interesting, there are a lot of courses that you can choose. The campus is really big and you literally can find everything there.
    Location:
    It’s near everything
    Accommodation:
    There are a lot of good accomodations but they cost a bit. In the accommodation you can meet a lot of new people

  • leithiandis's avatar by leithiandis on 11th July 2017
    Overall:
    Couldn't fault it for LLB Law at all, I've loved every minute of it . Started off with architecture though, the people were awful and the course was awful.
    University:
    Everything is pretty great, except a few things shut early.
    Course:
    I've enjoyed the majority of my time at DMU, as a whole the campus, course structure and university life is brilliant. There are definitely some lecturers who are awful (criminal law is notorious for bad marks and awful lecturers and tutors)
    Location:
    Leicester is a pretty average city but because it's small everything is within walking distance
    Accommodation:
    Overpriced and shabby.
    Settling in:
    I love being away from home and feeling independent.
  • princechromey's avatar by princechromey on 21st May 2017
    Overall:
    Based on everything I have wrote in this review, including course, location, facilities etc I would happily give this a 5/5 and would definitely recommend this university to anyone.
    University:
    Good facilities all round including a good amount of computers (plus new laptops being brought in), plenty of space in the library and plenty of food places to get a bite to eat.
    Course:
    Good quality course that was very interesting and enjoying to study as well as being intellectually stimulating
    Location:
    Very close to the city center (within 15 minutes) and also very close to rail and bus links, which is convenient.
    Accommodation:
    Location of the university accommodation is good and is only a few minutes away from the city center and the campus. I decided to commute as I was not ready to move out, nor was it cost effective
    Settling in:
    Took a while to settle in but once I'd settled in all was good.
