North America

De Montfort University (DMU) welcomes students from North America and we offer more than 300 courses at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level, many of which offer professional accreditations, links to industry and work experience.

DMU is a vibrant hub of learning, creativity and innovation, located in the welcoming and multicultural city of Leicester with over 27,000 full and part-time students.

Leicester offers everything you expect from a city and more – all on your doorstep. There are great shops, bars and restaurants just a short distance from campus, and Leicester is recognised as a great place to be a student too, with the latest Student Living Index (compiled by NatWest) ranking Leicester in the top 10 ‘most affordable student cities’, based on the cost to students of food, rent and fun. 

You will have plenty of opportunities to grow at DMU, whether you want to travel the world through our international student experience, DMU Global, take part in guaranteed work experience through our award-winning service, DMU Works or even host your own radio show through our very own student led, demon media, the opportunities are endless if you decide to join us all of which are designed to develop you into market leaders within a community environment that nurtures individuality. 

Our undergraduate degrees last 3 years and most of our graduate degrees last between 12 and 15 months. Student-athletes can continue playing their sport during this time too and we also offer sport scholarships. We work with US Federal Loans (and various other loan providers) to support your studies and we also offer partial scholarships.

DMU is a reputable university and we are approved by the US Department of Education to offer the William D Ford Federal Direct Loan programme.
