Study Computing at DMU

De Montfort University (DMU) has a long history of developing new technologies and we have been teaching computing for over 50 years. 

A number of our courses are accredited by professional bodies  and we have links with renowned companies such as Hewlett Packard (HP), Deloitte, IBM, BT and Airbus UK..

Our excellent facilities include Game Development Studios, specialist Forensic and Security laboratories, Computer Science laboratories and an Advanced Mobile Robotics and Intelligent Agents laboratory.

Undergraduate courses

We offer pathways courses for international students who need further academic or English language support before progressing to a degree in Computing at DMU.

Postgraduate courses


Work placements

Most of our courses offer you the opportunity to do a year-long placement in industry. Past students have undertaken placements with companies such as Hewlett-Packard (HP), Intel, Microsoft, Airbus Group and GlaxoSmithKline.  

If you are on a tier 4 visa and are approved to undertake a one year work placement, you will be granted a longer visa that includes the work placement.

However if you do not subsequently undertake a placement, we will curtail your visa which may have implications for any further Tier 4 visa applications. Any time added for work placements will contribute towards your time limit for studying in the UK.

Entry criteria

English language requirements: All our computing courses require an IELTS 6.0 overall with a minimum of 5.5 in each band, or equivalent.

If you do not meet the English language criteria, you may want to consider joining a DMU pre-sessional English course before you begin your studies.
