About the institution

De Montfort University is based in Leicester city centre and named after the city’s 6th Earl, Simon de Montfort. In 2014 it was ranked in the top 25 universities for employability. One way in which the university helps students build their employability is by encouraging community engagement.

Meanwhile, #DMUglobal offers students the chance to take their studies abroad.
