The university itself was easy to find, and it wasn’t long before I was greeted with both historical and post-modernist buildings. With a sound system playing in the main square as I registered, the next thing on my list was to attend an accommodation tour.
The building we visited was just one of the many accommodation suites on offer. Liberty Suite offered a nice leisure area to socialise with other residents, as well as a nice cosy room to reside in at university.
Next on the agenda was a subject talk from the English Language department. As the presentation continued, I found that a majority of the topics mentioned related to the Communication and Culture A-Level, with the course promising to touch on the power of language and the additional ideas a language can communicate. When the talk ended I was immediately intrigued in the course.
The next talk was that of the Journalism department. One intriguing insight regarding De Montfort is that it offers a “Joint Honours” course of English Language with Journalism. But at this course, it was revealed that only the Single Honours course is accredited by the NCTJ and covers shorthand. Eventually, I came to realise that maybe single honours Journalism may be better. But I still remain undecided…
After grabbing a quick lunch I returned to De Montfort to have an intriguing Student Finance talk. Then, it was time to have a look at a few more student accommodation sites. These, despite varying in location, all offered reasonable services.
Then that concluded my day at De Montfort!
