    • Graduates with successful global careersworking for companies such as ITN, Hewlett Packard (HP), IBM, Microsoft, BT, RBS, HSBC, Leicestershire County Cricket Club and Experian

    • Enjoy an international experience with #DMUglobalWe offer all students the opportunity to take part in a #DMUglobal experience, which can enrich your studies and expand your cultural horizons.
    Our campus is centralised and located in the city centre, which means the campus is in close proximity to shopping centres, accommodation as well as Leicester train station for travel. It depends upon the environment of the university that you prefer, some have several campus areas spread across the city as well as accommodation areas, others have them all centralised and in close proximity. It is definitely worth looking in to, and if you ever need to have a chat with anyone from DMU about the course or uni life, you can contact us here or give us a call/email and we would be happy to help.
