University Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy (ULTAS)

The University Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy (ULTAS) applies to all De Montfort University (DMU) students, including those studying at partner institutions. The principles which underpin this remain relevant whatever educational objective students are pursuing, whilst recognising their varying needs. Students will be part of the university's learning community and actively participate in its development and achievements from application to graduation and beyond.

DMU is a truly international university with a distinctive focus on employability, culturally aware and relevant curricula, offering comprehensive student support and academic guidance, and a strong commitment to equality, diversity and environmental sustainability. The ULTAS builds on this, further reinforcing our reputation for offering a distinctive high quality student learning experience. This is founded in secure university processes for continuous quality enhancement, underpinned by nationally-leading teaching innovation and international research excellence.

There are eight strategic principles which underpin the ULTAS:

  1. Teaching excellence informed by world-class research
  2. Varied assessment and delivery to enable student learning and achievement
  3. Enabling the development of students as independent, autonomous learners
  4. Continual focus on student employability and graduate skills
  5. Enhancing Learning through Technology (ELT)
  6. Culturally aware, international and relevant curricula
  7. Commitment to inclusivity and diversity
  8. Embedding education for sustainable development in the curriculum

This strategy sits alongside the university’s strategic vision and plan, Research and Innovation Strategy and the Employability Strategy.
