Leicester has been named as one of the top 10 cities in which to live and work in England. The city is confident and colourful, alive with possibilities yet full of quirks. It is big enough to offer something new every day, yet small enough to feel like home. Whether it is shopping, live music, sports or nightlife, you will have plenty to discover and explore during your time at DMU.
Our current students are proud to say #IchoseDMU. Read why.
I chose DMU as my course offered a placement year. It was one of my best experiences and has enhanced many skills. It has meant I’ve been able to secure a graduate scheme place with the company.
Being able to study in the new Vijay Patel Building has definitely enhanced my student experience. It’s encouraged all of the art, architecture and design students to collaboratively study together.
I’ve had the opportunity to join the DMU Climbing Club, and have experienced an unforgettable trip to go climbing in the nearby Peak District National Park. Because of this I’ve been able to meet lots of different students from different countries around the world.
One of the reasons I chose DMU is because of the excellent graduate employability rates. The placement aspect of my course will really give me an edge and improve my employability to help me stand out from other graduates.
