Leicester Media School
Leicester Media School brings together students from across technical and creative disciplines, allowing them to push boundaries by cross working.
Flexible use of our industry standard facilities means our students get hands on experience of applying up to date research to real world challenges in their chosen fields.
Research activity in the School is very broad, from production and analysis in video, film, television, audio, music, radio, journalism, and Internet through to cutting-edge engineering research in the creation of media technologies and their applications. This spectrum helps to ensure that media practitioners are aware of the latest technological developments, and that design engineers are aware of the needs and trends amongst practitioners.
Our Learning Zones and the The Greenhouse also provide space for group or individual work and study.
There are 1,600 study places across all library locations, more than 700 computer stations, laptops to borrow, free wi-fi and desktop power outlets.
You can also book rooms with plasma screens, laptops and DVD facilities for group work and presentations, secure an individual study room with adjustable lighting or make use of our assistive technology.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (other than in exceptional circumstances) and offers a huge range of online resources, all of which can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
The library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management and assistive technology, and mathematical skills for non-maths students. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
