De Montfort University (DMU) postgraduate courses receive continual input from leading employers and professional bodies and are underpinned by excellent research.

The £136 million reimagining of the campus at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) has created the modern, inspiring environment students deserve and shows confidence in what it does and what it is.

DMU research quality was reflected in the Research Excellence Framework (REF). More than 60 per cent was judged to be of international quality with 18 per cent internationally leading. DMU aims to increase the amount of top-rated research in all schools and strengthen our top-performing units for REF 2021.

This ensures they remain relevant and up-to-date and provide students with the skills and experience employers expect from candidates in a competitive job market.

Quick Guides to Postgraduate Tuition Fees and Finance

Bursaries and Scholarships

DMU understands access to funding for postgraduate study is a key part of the decision-making process for many students and there are several funding opportunities to explore.

DMU advise you to investigate funding options at an early stage of the application process as you are expected to have made adequate financial provision to cover both fees and living costs for the duration of your postgraduate study.

The Student Finance and Welfare Team offers support in a number of areas, including information about fees, grants and bursaries, and advice on bank accounts, benefits and bills.

 

Accommodation for Postgraduate Students

Although there are no halls of residences for postgraduate students, DMU recommends using SULETS which is run jointly by the DMU Students Union in conjunction with the University of Leicester. There are plenty other accommodations around the university as the campus is centrally located.
