Quality teaching in a top-class environment

Our experienced staff have taught all over the world and have extensive knowledge of the current best practices for teaching English language.

The centre itself provides a superb study environment at the heart of DMU’s city campus. Facilities include classrooms with interactive whiteboards and AV equipment, a language lab with audio, video and computer technology, and a state-of-the-art media lab with cinema screens and all the latest creative software applications.

Sports and leisure

De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) is an independent student-run and student-led organisation. They represent the student body and aim to help you to make the most of your time at university. All students upon enrolment automatically become a member of the DSU. The DSU societies are a great way to meet like-minded people and an exciting place to make new friends. Likewise so are the Sports clubs, the DSU has over 40 sports clubs many of which compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues.

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Leisure Centre provides our students and staff with state-of-the-art facilities with a range of flexible memberships available to DMU students.

Support during your studies

DMU offers free English language support while you are studying – two hours per week for undergraduate, research and postgraduate students.  Students also have the opportunity to attend drop-in sessions where they can discuss their work individually. Classes are usually optional, but we may ask you to attend if we feel you would benefit.

We have daytime and evening sessions to fit around your course timetable, all held in a friendly classroom environment where students work together to improve their language skills.
