10 reasons to choose DMU...
1. Global relationships
We are a truly international university that benefits from the many nationalities and cultures of our students and staff and our teaching is enhanced by our links with partners worldwide.
As a part of this we have just launched #DMUglobal; a ground-breaking new initiative for DMU which aims to provide the majority of our students with an international experience during their studies.
2. Innovative teaching
A supportive learning environment awaits you, with lecturers who are passionate about what they do and who embrace innovative ways of teaching to help you achieve more than you thought possible.
3. Relevant courses
Our courses are designed to meet the needs of modern employers, with content that is relevant to industry. By working with well-known companies such as HP, the BBC, Orange, Codemasters, Next, Selfridges and the Royal Mail, we ensure you have the skills and experience you will need to flourish in your future career.
We’ve recently spent £200 million on our facilities, from industry level equipment and studio spaces, through to modern student accommodation.
The Whatuni? Student Choice Awards 2011, voted for by students, placed DMU in the top 10 universities for our facilities.
We also have a new £8 million leisure centre, providing state-of-the-art facilities for all of our students.

Our courses are designed in association with leading employers to equip you with the skills you need to succeed in today’s competitive job market.
6. Life changing research
Research at DMU has been recognised as among the best at the UK's top universities; we were one of just six universities shortlisted for Research Project of the Year. Academics work at the cutting edge of their fields of expertise and pass this knowledge on to their students in our classrooms and lecture halls.
7. Cultural and community partnerships
Our cultural links enrich the lives of our students and open up invaluable opportunities for them. We have partnerships with organisations such as the British Library, Curve, Leicester City Football Club, Leicester Tigers, Leicester Comedy Festival and Leicestershire County Cricket Club.
Every student is also given the chance to enhance their CV by getting involved in our community initiative – the Square Mile project – which offers internships, project management experience and a range of volunteering opportunities as part of DMU’s drive to be a public good.
8. Top for creativity
We encourage creative flair in our students and in activities across the entire campus, and we are proud of the fact that DMU has been named one of the most creative universities in the UK by the Which? University guide.

Our teams in the UK and overseas are able to provide you with guidance on everything from visas, healthcare and travel, through to accommodation, getting to know DMU and Leicester, and information on living and studying in the UK.
