Student Activities and Opportunities

Media and Communications Society

The Media and Communications Society, also known as MCS, is the academic society for all students who study Media or have an interest in the subject. The society arranges activities and events throughout the year to allow students to get away from their studies and socialise with their peers. As well as arranging socials, the MCS Committee also works closely with staff here at the School of Media, Communication and Sociology to arrange careers talks and career experiences to help students academically while they study at the university and to help them when leaving.

UG Media and Communication Students in Action

As well as a supportive academic environment, you will also find a lot of opportunities to get involved in a number of different activities on and off campus. Indicative is the student-run media on campus including The Ripple, our student newspaper, LUST, our TV station, and LUSH Radio, our radio station.

As shown below, our UG students are involved in a range of activities outside classroom. They are members of student societies, work part-time, do sports, and much more.

Our students say...

'I’m a member of the Leicester University Student Television (LUST), now doing a documentary about UK in a foreign eye. I am one of the presenters and I really enjoy being a member of LUST.

I work for student engagement team in the University. My job varies, as different events require me to do different jobs.

I joined our department society in my first year of study, and went to the trip to BBC and a couple of social events organized by our society. It is the society related to our course and I enjoy every session they make.

I play rugby for the University, which involves one game and two training sessions a week as well as one social event.

This year I joined the LUST society, because I think it helps me get to know the basic knowledge of TV production.'
