Your DMU Future - information for applicants

Welcome to your DMU community...

There’s already a welcoming DMU community available for you to access right now in our Applying to DMU 2021 Facebook group, our regular Instagram Q&As and our livestreams. Make sure you also visit our YouTube channel to catch up with all the latest DMU content, including our Your DMU Future playlist.

Our live streams focus on areas which are of interest to you. From information about student finance and how to apply, to Q&A’s on teaching and learning and university campaigns, our streams are a useful way to get involved with the DMU community. You’ll be able to ask questions both before and during the livestream which will be responded to live. All sessions include our experienced Student Advisors and current DMU students to provide a blend of staff and student perspectives. Book onto a live stream here.

As a new DMU student, we know that you will be feeling anxious and uncertain about what your university experience will be like during a situation that none of us has faced before.

Your first term at university will be unlike that of any previous year and we are working very hard to make sure that where possible to do so, you will still be able to enjoy DMU student life to the full.

No matter your question or concern, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us – we’re with you every step of the way. You can get in touch either by phone on +44 (0)116 257 7000, email via, or on social media, such as Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.

If you want to know more about a course, being a DMU student or life in Leicester, why not send a message to one of our Unibuddies? Our friendly student ambassadors are from a wide variety of courses, countries and years of study and they’re available to chat now! You can also get in contact with experienced members of our Schools and Colleges Liaison Team about applications, scholarships and fees too.


Take a look at your Student Handbook

 To help you make the most of learning online, we’ve developed this Student Handbook in collaboration with our students. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about studying online at DMU, including:

  • Information on your online pre-induction
  • A glossary of the types of online sessions you’ll experience
  • Top tips for learning online
  • Where to go for support
  • Self-assessment tools to help you reflect on your skills

We are also developing a handbook specifically for Postgraduate Research students which will be available here very soon.
