About De Montfort University
DMU’s success is built on a fantastic student experience coupled with award-winning teaching and world-class facilities that help students develop the skills and attitudes employers demand. Little wonder then that the DMU is one of the top 25 universities for graduate employment according to the annual Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, where it was reported that 95.8% of DMU graduates from the summer of 2014.
We provide a supportive learning environment in which our students are encouraged to hone their skills, be creative and defy the odds. To ensure they succeed, all 19,000 students are fully supported by 2,700 staff.
DMU is continuously investing in campus development to be able to provide students a modern and inspiring environment. A £136 million transformation plan of the surrounding city centre site will see improved teaching rooms, eating areas and the Students’ Union, and create a beautiful area of parkland at the very heart of the campus.
The centrepiece is an impressive new base for the Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities – with sector-leading teaching facilities that will help DMU to be one of the foremost providers of creative higher education in the UK.
Our extensive plans will also see work being done to add extra break-out areas for students, to open up the riverside on the campus and to significantly improve outdoor sports facilities for the benefit of all.
In addition to this ambitious project, DMU is also restoring the Great Hall of Leicester Castle to its former glory, investing £4.2m in the refurbishment and creating within it a new business school, building on DMU’s excellent reputation in the field of business and management, and offering a portfolio of new courses for ambitious, high-calibre students from around the world.
