De Montfort University Leicester (DMU)

DMU is a dynamic, diverse and supportive community dedicated to ensuring our students enjoy the superb university experiences they deserve.

With an emphasis on creative thinking and civic responsibility, DMU supports its students to challenge their own perceptions through innovative teaching and engaging degree programmes. 

In 2017, DMU was ranked Gold under the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in recognition of the consistently outstanding teaching and learning on offer, and the extraordinary impact that has on its students.

We enjoy close links with global companies and have an outstanding employability record. In 2017, we were named the best university in the country for helping students find highly-skilled work or further study. (Wonkhe, 2017).

Last year, DMU was named one of the 150 best “young” universities in the world – those which are 50 years old or under – by the Times Higher Education magazine.

Our academics work on world-leading research projects that aim to change all our lives for the better – some of which you can see at the GREAT Festival of Innovation. 

Our signature #DMUglobal programme brings a new dimension to studies and enriches personal experiences. We are very proud to consider ourselves a global university, and our students are truly citizens of the world.

Our most recent, largest-ever launch of #DMUglobal experiences meant students from all years could choose to be part of adventures in China, Guatemala, India, Prague, Paris, Florida, or a flagship excursion to New York.
