Health and Life Sciences facilities
Investment of £12 million in Health and Life Sciences has developed our first-class teaching and learning facilities to help you develop your practical experience and theoretical knowledge beyond the classroom.
The 19th century Hawthorn Building has facilities designed to replicate current practice in health and life sciences, including contemporary analytical chemistry and formulation laboratories, audiology booths and nursing and midwifery clinical skills suites.
Purpose-built clinical skills areas allow you to apply theory to practice in a safe environment. You will receive guidance and support from staff, to ensure that your practical ability in the clinical skills suites is accurate.
Psychology students benefit from access to a suite of research rooms and computer laboratories which are restricted to Psychology undergraduate and postgraduate students. The Psychology Division also provides a wide range of software and equipment to support the development of experimental studies and resources to facilitate the collection and analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data - both electronically and in person.
The MSc Psychological Well-being at DMU provides the opportunity to complete a programme with a distinctive focus on mental wellness and we were one of the first Universities in the UK to offer training in this area.
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.
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.
