De Montfort University - The most improved university in the UK
De Montfort University (DMU) recently climbed 32 places in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide taking it to 54th position – the biggest rise of any university in the UK.
Based in Leicester, in the heart of England, DMU is a vibrant, multicultural hub of creativity and innovation; never surrendering to convention. We provide a supportive and stimulating learning environment in which our students are encouraged to develop industry-level skills, be creative and do things their own way. Award-winning teaching is supported by life-changing research, dynamic international partnerships and strong links with business and industry, making DMU graduates highly employable in a competitive jobs market.
The university is proud to have leapt into the top 50 UK universities with the best employment rates. Successful graduates have gone on to work at world-leading companies such as Warner Bros, HSBC, Nike, KPMG, BBC, Gucci, Abercrombie and Fitch, BMW, Levi’s, NASA, Disney, IBM and Adidas.
Leicester itself is a diverse and vibrant place to live; recent £3 billion regeneration has transformed the city into a lively hub of entertainment, shopping and culture. The Lonely Planet travel guide recently named Leicester as one of the world’s top destinations for 2015 following the opening of the Richard III Visitor Centre – joining the likes of New York, Panama and Thailand as must-visit places.
