Leicester Centre of Journalism
Students have access to facilities such as the dedicated computer suites in the Leicester Centre of Journalism and a newsroom, so that they can enhance their practical and professional skills further.
We also boast multimillion-pound Creative Technology Studios, which include a suite of high-tech radio and TV studios. Journalism students can use these facilities to learn about contemporary journalism, with many on the course choosing to work with our award-winning Demon Media group and gain valuable hands-on experience by contributing to its magazine, radio station, TV station and website.
Library and learning zones
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offers a range of print and online resources to support your studies. Many resources and services can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
The library staff offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching, reference management and assistive technology. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone. We also have space across campus for group or individual work and study, with computer stations, laptops, plasma screens and assistive technology available.
More flexible ways to learn
Our Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has been recognised as leading the university sector. It builds upon our pledge to offer an equitable and inclusive approach to learning and teaching for all our students.
UDL means we offer a wide variety of support, facilities and technology to all students, including those with disabilities and specific learning differences.
Just one of the ways we do this is by using ‘DMU Replay’ – a technology providing all students with anytime access to audio and/or visual material of lectures.
This means students can revise taught material in the way which suits them best, whether it's replaying a recording of a class or adapting written material shared in class using specialist software.
