University awarded 

Many of our undergraduate courses are awarded by DMU. Due to our close relationship, many students complete their top-up final year of their degree at DMU. Leicester College works with the university to ensure our students are well prepared for the transition following the completion of their undergraduate study with us.  

Students on DMU-awarded courses can also make use of the university’s QEII Leisure Centre, which includes: 25-metre swimming pool, 13-metre climbing wall, eight-court sports hall, state-of-the-art fitness suite and a free-weights area.  


If you study one of our full-time university-level programmed awarded by DMU, you’ll have access to Leicester College facilities as well as DMU’s. This includes access to accommodation services on the same basis as DMU students, so you can request a place in halls if you need one. It also includes student union membership, access to the library and leisure facilities.
