De Montfort University

Leicester | East Midlands

Creative City Campus

Ucas code: D26

Leicester’s De Montfort University (DMU) is the most-improved university in the UK, recently climbing 32 places in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide to 54th position. Like the city on its doorstep, DMU is a vibrant, multicultural hub of creativity and innovation; never surrendering to convention - a place where students are encouraged to develop the skills they need yet do things their own way. Our graduates have gone on to work at world-leading companies such as NASA, Disney, the BBC, Warner Bros, HSBC, Gucci, BMW, Levi’s, IBM and Adidas.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
