A quality learning environment...

All De Montfort University (DMU) students belong to one of our four faculties.

Each faculty delivers a wide range of courses to students as well as overseeing world-changing research and fostering enviable commercial links that inform our teaching and ensure DMU courses are relevant to modern employers.

The Faculty of Arts, Design and Humanities brings together DMU’s creative disciplines. Its courses range from traditional to boundary pushing and research is rated as internationally excellent. Names such as shoe guru Jimmy Choo and novelist Adele Parks have lectured students thanks to the faculty’s exceptional industry links.

The Faculty of Business and Law delivers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including accounting, law, politics, marketing and business studies, that are all designed with employability in mind. All of our undergraduate courses offer the opportunity to study abroad for up to a year with a partner institution. Housed in the new, state-of-the-art Hugh Aston Building, the faculty is known for its excellent teaching, leading edge research and superb links with industry.
