Is De MontFort a good uni for a student in Egypt?

I have recived an offer from De MontFort uni for Mechatronics Engineering and i have second thoughts honestly. Alot of people said its overshadowed by Russel Group unis, others say its a bad uni, some say they had good teachers, others say their teachers were very bad and lacked support. I dont know if it was personal problems or a Quality of Education problem. Just for context, i am applying to international year one, so i will finish in 3 years. I also dont have an option to enter any russel uni because i only have 1 A-Level which is Mathematics. Also i was considering entering the GUC here in egypt has a THE ranking of 1200 World Wide. The problem with the GUC in egypt is that its not that easy to get a job and wehn you get one it would pay very low and promotions are on the long term, in order to live the average life you need to work atleast for 6 years to earn enough money to do so. So is it worth the money to enter De MontFort or should i just stay here in Egypt and enter the GUC?
de montfort does not rank highly within the uk or globally,

i cannot speak for how a middling uk university qualification will help you in egypt after you graduate, as i do not know, but maybe it is still relatively good

it also depends on how cheap domestic education would be for you relative to the uk

Hey there,

I am also an international student and I am studying at DMU. I study cyber security, and DMU provided me with enough knowledge and experience to get a placement with Jaguar Land Rover which I will start on 1st of July. I can also assure you that the education you will receive is solid and of the highest standards. There are many things that affect university rankings and it is not the best metrics especially for techncal degrees. Also please keep in mind that DMU is a very young university which is only getting better and better every year.

P.S. Campus is a masterpiece! Please, come over for an Open Day to have a look.

Take care,
Ilya :smile:
