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 comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Our Learning Zones and The Greenhouse provide flexible spaces, whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with plasma screens, laptops and DVD facilities. Wi-Fi is available across all campus locations.
We have 1,600 study places and more than 700 computer workstations across all library locations on campus. These give access to more than 500,000 print publications, thousands of e-books and e-journals and a huge range of DVDs, plus a host of research databases.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).
The library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management.
There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
