De Monfort University (DMU) is a vibrant, multicultural hub of learning, creativity and innovation that never surrenders to convention. The most improved university in the UK according to The Sunday Times league tables, DMU is a great place to study and, being based in Leicester, it is a great place to live.

Our success is built on a fantastic student experience coupled with award-winning teaching and world-class facilities that help you develop the skills and attitudes employers demand. Little wonder then that we’re also one of the top 50 universities in the country when it comes to graduates finding jobs.

We provide a supportive learning environment in which our students are encouraged to hone their skills, be creative and defy the odds. To ensure they succeed, all 19,000 students are fully supported by 2,700 staff.

Student life

The student experience is not just about study, it is about personal enrichment, socialising and life. A place of support and fun, De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU), is here to ensure students have the best-possible experience at DMU. Whether you want advice, to relax, or to party it can all be found in the Campus Centre. There are also more than 140 societies and sports teams, which are a great place to make new friends.

Plus, students get some huge discounts on sports tickets thank to DMU’s partnerships with Leicester City Football Club, rugby union giants Leicester Tigers, and Leicestershire County Cricket Club.
