De Montfort University - Made from More

What you learn in books is just the start. Find your new home at DMU, where our award-winning careers service can open doors for you.

What makes us different

Our goal is to help every student reach their goal ensuring they have the best learning experience possible. To achieve that, we introduced a new way of learning, Education 2030, where students will study one module at a time, providing students with more opportunities to develop wider skills and build a stronger learning community.

Our award-winning careers service, DMU Works, provides students with guaranteed work experience opportunities and lifelong support for all DMU alumni. University is a huge investment, and our careers commitment to you is not simply to help you secure a job but to equip you with the skills to thrive, adapt and innovate in our ever-changing world. 

Based in Leicester, DMU is in a diverse and vibrant city, home to major employers such as Caterpillar UK, IBM, Next and PepsiCo. For the second year in a row, DMU has ranked in the top 10 British universities with the most student and graduate start-ups (HESA).

Choosing this path was a big move, but coming to DMU brought me to the most amazingly talented and caring people that I can truly call my family. I hope you’ll find your family here, too.
