There are so many reasons to choose DMU. From our modern campus in Leicester city centre, voted as one of the top 10 cities in the UK in which to live and work, to our Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework, which recognises the outstanding teaching and learning on offer.

Visiting us at an Open Day will help you picture yourself here as a student and give you a real feel of DMU. You will never be short of support and if, for whatever reason, you can’t make it on campus to visit us in person, then you can talk directly to current students during one of our online chat events instead.

Once you’ve joined us, you can enhance your studies through DMU Global, which offers opportunities to travel overseas to enrich your learning as well as broaden your cultural horizons. Our students have previously visited some really exciting destinations such as New York, Hong Kong and Berlin.

Back on campus, we’ll help you gain professional skills through DMU Works, our employability programme, which offers guaranteed work experience opportunities and placements related to your course. Students in the past have worked with companies such as Google, Goldman Sachs and Burberry.

It’s not just these fantastic opportunities that make a degree, but also the people that you meet. By joining our Applying to DMU 2020 Facebook group, you can start getting to know others who are going to university at the same time and hopefully begin making new friends before you even arrive on campus.

At DMU, we encourage and recognise excellent teaching. Our courses embed employability in their curriculum and our research feeds into your education. You’ll be learning from academics with industry experience and researchers who have made a real difference to people’s lives, such as Dr Kandan, who repurposed plastic bottles to make prosthetic limb sockets. His work could save healthcare providers millions of pounds and help tackle plastic pollution at the same time, and is just one example of the life-changing research taking place at DMU.
