I am currently a 3rd year studying psychology at De Montfort University. I find the lectures and seminars to be very useful and tailed to the coursework and exams. lectures are always open to questions via email and normally get back to you the same day. The university campus is very modern with lots of activities, places to eat, cafes and seating areas. Within the Health and life sciences faculty, there are a wide variety of placement and volunteering options, you can also get help in how to apply for these positions and after you graduate you can still stay in contact with the areas of volunteering.
I loved my time at DMU and would recommend it particularly to those interested in arts and humanities.
The standard of teaching is high, with both lectures and smaller seminars, although sometimes it can feel like group’s are too big and would benefit from smaller seminar groups.
The campus itself is well laid out with everything a student needs in the one place.
