Coming to university is, for the majority of students, a fantastic experience. It's a chance to meet new people, have lots of new opportunities, achieve academic goals and work towards a career.
DMU works hard to ensure that all students have a positive experience at DMU. It is important that students feel they’re able to ask for advice and support as early as possible to reduce any impact on their mental health.
The university’s Healthy DMU initiative is a whole university approach and provides resources to help students to have a healthy, happy and productive time at university, and develop lifestyle habits that can enrich their wellbeing for years to come. During term time, Healthy DMU masterclasses take place, which focus on a variety of topics, such as mindfulness, managing pressure and building confidence.
DMU’s Disability Advice and Support Team offers services tailored to the speciﬁc needs of students with physical and sensory disabilities, medical conditions and speciﬁc learning differences.
The university’s Mental Health Inclusion Team and Wellbeing Team are there to guide students towards the many support services available, in person and online, and from day one students are encouraged to ask for help with any issues concerning mental health.
The institution also has a dedicated International Student Support Team to provide specialist advice throughout studies. The team can offer general information about living and studying in Leicester, as well as help students meet others from their home country.
