ConsWhere do we start?

According to BBC News Online, this 'institution' has a drop out rate of 11% for the academic year 2001-02. The justification for this shockingly low figure is the classic Paxman motto: "I've started so I'll finish". Well, what have the non-drop-outs started? A programme of study that, if it was...

“Do U need this Uni”

ProCentral location and cheap cost of living

ConsAccommodation tight if not booked early

INTRODUCTION ************* This is an extensive opinion and I will dwell here sufficient to say the University is named after Simon DeMontfort, a rebellious Leicester Earl, switching from Leicester Polytechnic around 1990. As a polytechnic in the 1960-70`s smaller rock groups frequently played...

Conssome courses are pretty naff - be careful

The trouble with writing a review of a University is that there really is no homogenous whole - a university is merely the sum of its parts. Another reviewer said this University was pretty dire - but that wasn't my experience at all. Having said that I was undertaking a completely different...

Probrilliant employment rate, interesting course

Conslack of help with funding

This may be a little eclectic for this site, but I know quite a few people who totally rave about this course, so it's probably worth reviewing. There are so many total rip-off journalism courses out there too, that it's good to see one which actually delivers what it promises. This is accredited...

ConsIt can be looked down upon by the red-bricks

I am a third-year LLB law student at DMU Leicester, and although you may say I should be striving with my courseworks, I have just done a load of work and think I deserve a break! I can only give you an overview of the uni outside my course, and that I shall provide first. The location is pretty...

I have to start off by saying DMU Leicester has been one of the worst experiences of my life. That includes all three years (2004-2007). I live in Leicester but I really did not want to come to this uni. My financial circumstances meant that this was my only other option. I studied on the LLB Law...

DMU is one of the large Universitys, with something like 18,000 students in Leicester. This is both good and bad. It means they can provide some really good facilities, such as the libaray (a new students union... if it ever gets built) some good and up to date IT facilities and other such...
