What our students say


Damilare Akintade from Lagos, Nigeria
Studying PhD in Pharmacology & Toxicology

'I received a nice welcome and the International Student Support Team helped me to settle in quickly. The academic team at DMU are supportive, the lab facilities and equipment are good. I have also received a lot of support from the Students’ Union to develop the Nigerian Student Society and organise events. I enjoy how diverse and multicultural Leicester is. It’s well situated in the middle of the UK and is a friendly, safe and lively city.'
