De Montfort University
De Montfort University (DMU) traces its roots back to the Leicester School of Art, which was established in 1869. The University takes its name from Simon De Montfort, Earl of Leicester, who is widely credited with establishing the first Parliament in 1265.
De Montfort University puts considerable emphasis on employability. Many of its 400-plus courses boast input from the likes of HP and the BBC, making them relevant to industry. DMU has been awarded the second highest number of National Teaching Fellows of any institution since the scheme began and offers more than 170 professionally accredited courses. Nearly half of its research was rated as world-leading and internationally excellent in the latest research assessment exercise (2008).
The university offers a number of placement opportunities, giving students the chance to experience a real-life working environment. DMU also has its own placement scheme, Frontrunners, which offers students the chance to apply for a placement within the university itself. It also offers careers advice, a range of careers fairs, internship programmes and knowledge-transfer partnerships.
Leicester itself is a diverse and vibrant place. A £3bn regeneration of the city has transformed it into a hub of entertainment, shopping and culture – all of which is within walking distance of DMU’s campus.
