Around 1,000 students and staff recently returned from New York on the latest mass #DMUglobal trip. They took part in a series of academic and cultural activities, soaking up the sights and sounds of the Big Apple.

There are so many reasons to choose DMU. From our location in the vibrant city of Leicester, our newly transformed campus, our Gold-standard teaching and learning (HEFCE 2017) and our place as one of the 20 best universities in the country for career prospects (DLHE 2015/16). Leicester has also recently been voted the third most affordable city for students in the UK (NatWest 2018).

Our #DMUglobal initiative offers unforgettable overseas experiences with employability at the heart. To date, over 10,000 students have taken part, visiting some of the most iconic cities in the world including New York, Hong Kong and San Francisco. All eligible students can receive a bursary to contribute towards the cost of their trip.

DMU students have guaranteed opportunities to take part in professional work experience with #DMUworks. Our diverse population and the success of students in exams and graduate job prospects saw DMU named University of the Year for Social Inclusion by The Sunday Times Good University Guide.
