As a student who lived away from the university freshers week was hard. However there were lots of accommodating people who I soon became friends with. The UV rave that I attended at king power stadium was incredible, and the bar tour was very messy. The accommodation that most of my friends lived in was lovely. The summit was always clean, although the building work surrounding it wasn't nice. Filbert village was also very spacious and my friends flat always had great things to say about the security One word. AMAZING. I'm so glad I came to DMU as the equipment for my course is state of the art. The food is always well priced and SO tasty. The online and in person library has everything you could need. However sometimes it can be difficult to get hard copies of books The lecturers always respond to emails really quickly. My course isn't very big so you get to know your lectures fairly well. The access to the labs is really essential to the course understanding I grew up around Leicester so for me the night life isn't anything new. However getting to experience it with new people was great fun. The university campus is SO close to the city centre which is perfect

Freshers week at De Montfort University was very vibrant to say the least. There was always something to do - even if it was something that you wouldn't usually do. Unfortunately - I've never actually lived in DMUs accommodation. However - I know that some have had very pleasant experiences. The facilities are amazing! Although were in a pandemic right now - the library was my go to place to study. Its a very well thought out place - a room and or floor tailored to each and everyone's needs when studying. When comparing my experience to my sibling - who had also studied accounting, I can confidently say that I've had better lecturers who support you throughout your time at dmu. They really do encourage you to think about your future and where life can really take you - with that being said, they also encourage you to take any and every opportunity that comes your way. Again - unfortunately I actually live in the city so life at university hadn't changed dramatically. Although - I was taking more time out to actually enjoy nature and not the city, really and truly explore what the place had to offer.

We got to mix within different groups of people on the course and share our ideas about what we had done over the summer holidays, giving us a light introduction to the programme I have remained living at home during my time at university as I live near to campus My studies are in the new Vijay Patel building which has excellent facilities for the course, from practical model making to computer software. There is a great range of food on campus to cater to all dietary needs and enables people to try new things. A great mix of hands on and technical skills were taught and also having a module dedicated to CV building and interviews was helpful especially when interviewing for placements As there are 2 universities in Leicester, there's a lot of places for students to go like restaurants, clubs and activities and also knowing the city from growing up around it, it enabled me to help other students

Great made lots of new friends. Fun activities to do. I personally didn't stay in the accommodation but my friends said the accommodation was excellent Library was excellent range of books, clean and quiet. Classrooms spacious and clean. The course and lectures were very interactive questions asked and answered. City life was really good. Mixing with different people allowed me to mix with different social groups.

I had induction lectures and there were some “law cafe”. The lecturers were really welcoming and kind. I also bought a freshers week party wristband that gave me access to all freshers parties. I also went to freshers events for international students that were really cozy I never lived in dmu accommodation. However the rooms look good. dmu library is amazing. open 24/7, good conditions, a great variety of books. Also, there is a law library exclusive for law students, which is great The course is really well structured and organised. The teaching team is excellent and supportive Leicester is a pleasing city to live. It has great parks and all the major food and clothing chains

I wasn't expecting to make friends as I'm a (young) mature student but it happened naturally and I'm grateful for that. I am motivated to get up and get into uni and stay past my allotted contact hours. I'm really lucky to be attending DMU because they really look after their students and provide them with loads of opportunities.

University so far has exceeded my expectations of what living and studying at home would be like. I initially thought that because it was somewhere new and as we have been thrown into the big wide world, that there would be little support and guidance. I was very wrong. Everyone I have met here, staff and students have been so attentive and lovely, I feel like I can already call another place a home.

Freshers Week was fun! It was full of fun activities, drunk nights and exploring the city. It's a number of student accommodations to choose from. They have shared accommodations of flat studios. I recommend the flat studios. The facilities at De Montfort are always a comfortable setting to be in. The library is huge you can find literally everything you are looking for pertaining to school work in there. If you do not have a computer don't worry the 24hr library is there for you. The course gives you the knowledge you need to get into your career goal. The lectures are very useful and if you miss a lecture you have a website you can go on to review the missed lecture. The lecturers are there to help! City life in Leicester is fun. There are number of things to do. You can go fun golf. You can go to the movies. You can go to the clubs with your friends to just have a good time. Everything is in walking distance.
