About De Montfort University
Thousands of lives are changed for the better every year through the inspirational teaching and vital research taking place at De Montfort University (DMU).
Based in Leicester, in the heart of England, we are a university of quality and distinctiveness and our contribution to the world around us is significant: we boost the UK economy by £389 million each year and create more than 12,000 jobs*.
DMU boasts 13 National Teaching Fellows, higher education’s most prestigious teaching awards. This is one of the highest numbers awarded to any university since the scheme began in 2000. In addition to this, more than 170 courses are professionally accredited. Four faculties offer 400 diverse undergraduate and postgraduate subjects, with full-time, part-time and distance learning options offering flexibility.
Our 22,000 students are superbly supported by 2,700 staff. Students benefit from a supportive environment and state-of-the-art facilities and, in an uncertain world economy, our exceptional links with industry allow us to shape courses to ensure graduates are equipped with the skills and experience that modern employers need.
The university’s pioneering research, driven by over 1,000 research students and supported by 500 staff, is internationally renowned and addresses some of the most critical issues affecting our world.
