Leicester: live, learn and love it
Leicester is a colourful, confident and diverse city, thriving on its recent success and deserved attention, and named as one of the best cities in which to live and work in the UK.
Living history and sporting glory drew the world’s gaze recently and De Montfort University (DMU) is proud to have been a part of drama around both Richard III’s reburial in Leicester Cathedral, and in Leicester City’s amazing success in the Premier League and in Europe.
Brilliant teamwork powered 5,000-1 shots Leicester City, our Official Higher Education Partners, to the Premier League title. We’ve been on the same side for years, two great city institutions working together, and our students stay close to the action thanks to ticket offers and work opportunities at the King Power stadium. Meanwhile the power of a king created new chapters in Leicester’s 2,000-year history; DMU is close to the legend of Richard III.
We believe our students and graduates are a vital part of the city’s exciting present, too, and we encourage them to go on and shape its future. We’re putting them in a strong position, with DMU now ranked Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the only Government-run measure of teaching quality in higher education. DMU is the fifth best university for overall teaching excellence and best university in the country for helping students find highly skilled work or further study, according to higher education experts Wonkhe.
And when you’re not studying, Leicester is a great place for relaxation and stimulation, to shop, soak up culture, to experience many cultures, and to buy and eat food from every part of the planet. Leicester is big enough to offer something new every day, and just the right size so you feel right at home. Join us and make yourself part of the success story.
