Leicester - De Montfort University Leicester

De Montfort University, which is named after Simon de Montfort who was Earl of Leicester in the 13th century, is one of two universities situated in the city of Leicester.

Prior to 1992 De Montfort University was known as Leicester Polytechnic. It had been created in 1969 through the amalgamation of Leicester College of Technology and Leicester College of Art. The Polytechnic was established as a corporation in 1989.

In the mid-1990s, DMU attracted students using a memorable TV and cinema advert that reputedly cost £500k featuring a killer whale chasing some seals on a beach. The tag line "Reserve your Seat of Learning Here" was read by Angus Deayton, implying that students should avoid letting life "chew them up" and improve their job prospects with a degree.

The first choice for postgraduate students DMU offers a wide range of professional, creative and innovative programmes at postgraduate level. Students take advantage of excellent facilities and are taught by experts in their field, many of whom are researchers making an active contribution to their subject area.

DMU postgraduates are sought after in the job market: 98.5% of DMU postgraduates find jobs within six months of finishing their programmes, with an average salary of £27,587. (Source: DMU First Destinations Survey 2005). DMU postgraduates are highly rated by employers because of DMU’s reputation for teaching, research and for offering valuable work placements during courses.

DMU frequently runs high-profile research projects with industries and businesses in which its students are involved. In the government’s most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), De Montfort University achieved top grades of 5s and 4s – meaning ‘research excellence at an international level’ – than any other post-1992 university.
