I enjoyed my time at De Montfort University, the three years went by really fast and I made some amazing friends! The lecturers were helpful (well most), and the careers team is always helpful! They also have a lot to offer eg the Dmu graduate champions which allows graduates to undertake a 6 week internship which is really useful!

De Montfort has amazing facilities and the #DMUglobal scheme is amazing, however it’s really hard to make friends on your course. Which makes it extremely hard when it comes to revision. A lot of the lecturers that I have come across are not helpful when you don’t understand something and sometimes make you feel inferior for not understanding a theory. I’m hoping that my experience in the coming year changes my view on DMU because I currently wouldn’t want someone I know to come to a uni that is so disconnected in a sense.

I really struggled immensely with my mental health in my first year and I had no idea that there were mental health facilities available to help me. DMU should advertise that a lot more as a lot of students struggle with their mental health and are unaware that there are facilities available to them so that they can get better.

BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

Overal the degree content is up to date and relevant, containing novel research made by the lecturers and this enables our knowledge in the subject to be more relevant.
Our lecturers are of a good standard, however, like all universities, some are better than others. But the overal teaching standard is good.
The time spent in labs is very well planned and we are able to maximise learning in a short period of time, my only complaint would be that I wish we had more time and a higher volume of lab practicals.

I am starting the course in October and so far it seems wonderful. If I can judge by open days and interview day, the facilities are awesome, the staff always tries to help and the students are very happy there. A great environment to nurture your art skills. We also have a FB chat group for our own year and some third-year people and they praise the course very much. I am looking forward to the start!

BSc (Hons) Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Science
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

Content varies from formulation of products to pharmacology (how drugs interact with the body) which is a broad variation of topics which I enjoy. All modules have 30% coursework and 70% end of year exam which is a good balance.
Teaching is good but some lecturers don't return feedback and grades within a decent period of time

Course module review - Advanced Corporate Taxation, 26/05/2016

Advanced Corporate Taxation
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

The lecturers for this module were extra supportive, and not just for module stuff either. The assignment was well written (requirements were listed so we knew how best to get the marks). Taxation is complex, but the module was structured well so that we could see how each bit came together.
