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.

      The downside

      Student Union activities - getting people more involved with one another in different ways than going out getting drunk at a club. Quiz nights, open mic etc and advertise them better!

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.
