De Montfort University (DMU) is based in Leicester, England. Leicester is a great student city, it is diverse and multicultural, and was named one of the best cities to live and work in in the UK. It is a public university with focus on Art, Design, and Humanities; Business and Law; Health and Life Sciences; and Technology (comprising Computing Sciences and Engineering). The university’s roots can be traced back to 1870; to the Leicester School of Art. DMU offers a modern and inspiring environment. DMU is one of the leading institutions of higher education in the UK. It achieved Gold standard in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in 2017 which makes it one of the top third of universities. DMU was named the 5th best university for overall teaching experience, according to TEF. The employment rate is great, DMU graduates are well-equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to start their global careers. In 2016, approximately 96 % of DMU graduates were in work or further study shortly after graduation. In 2017, DMU started offering the LoveEU Bundle, as the university welcomes students from more than 130 countries and wants to continue just doing that. To help reassure EU students, DMU has created the LoveEU Bundle which includes a payment of £150 to EU students coming to the university from outside of the UK.
I was a business student at DMU. The facilities and surroundings of this uni are great, no problem at all. However, some teachers don’t give students proper results and they don’t leave specific feedbacks.View more
My opinion on this university is that I believe that university is a place where you need to take initiative and take advantage of the resources around you as well as learn as much as you can’t from the people around and and DMU really gives you that platform to do that really well.View more
It’s a good university, they communicate well with students and always keep you up to date with what’s going on. They are understanding of circumstances and offer you support and guidance to make sure you don’t fall back on your studies. I enjoy my course.View more
I didn’t expect such a welcoming and diverse university before arriving but it exceeded my expectations! Upon arrival I was instantly made comfortable with the staff – which was encouraging for me. Not just in a social aspect but this motivated me in my studies also. I can only speak highly of my experience at this uni as the facilities were subpar and to a high quality, the teaching has been impeccable and my experience is one I am glad for.View more

The campus has all the facilities you would ever need and is very close to the town centre, making it convenient to go shops in between breaks etc. Also, there’s a lot of accommodation spaces around and they’re all very welcoming.View more

I feel as though this university is very good with the supplies and facilities it has, although they lack lecturers within the dance department. The area for students is grand and the accommodation is relatively nice. 8/10View more
You’ll most likely only enjoy DMU if you try to make the most of it.
Doing a Business and Management course was pretty easy and enjoyable, nothing too difficult. If you want to be challenged this isn’t the subject for you. There really isn’t too much to it, the facilities are good and most professors are really helpful and will try to make lectures and seminars enjoyable.
The real value comes from the support you can get around your subject. For example the employability team. Going for a placement is something that can be extremely stressful and they make it manageable. If you where to compare my first CVs and Cover Letters to those and the end of the academic year you would be shocked. My ability and confidence in interviews rose dramatically thanks to them making sure I was prepared.
This is just one example of many things that are in place at DMU.
The reason I say “make the most of it” is because you will have to ask for them. You will be made aware of all this support, but you have to go ask for it.
So would I recommend you to go DMU, yes. If you are willing to put in a little bit of work and go look for support then, it can make your time there worthwhile.View more
I would recommend De Montfort University, I very much like how close the campus is to the city centre, accommodation and large super markets, it makes it easier to plan your day and visit University and. The campus itself is also well grouped together on the same site so you don’t need to get a bus or walk too far from one building to the next.View more
