Accommodation / Cost of living
England, which is the 1st most preferred location globally, is home to the oldest, well-established, prestigious, and quality universities that students can go to.
Since England is a multicultural residential area, the lifestyle of each city differs from the other. Student life can be very different for students in different regions of the UK. Your experience depends on the university you attend, what part of the UK you are in and what you do. Student life can be fascinating and educational.
Universities in England have their dormitories. Students can stay in these dormitories according to their availability and preferences. In addition, the most common type of accommodation in the UK is homestay. Students can choose accommodation with or without meals and many more options. For students who prefer De Montfort University in Leicester, the annual accommodation cost is around £6,000-13,000, and non-accommodation prices are around £3,000-7,000.
DMU's campus is located in the heart of Leicester. It is a city rich in history, modern achievements, and diverse heritage. The advantages of living and working in Leicester are many. It ranks among the top three student cities in the UK, just behind Manchester and Cambridge, in the 2020 Student Life Index compiled by NatWest. It has also been selected as one of the top 10 cities in the UK to start a business report by StartUpsGeek.com. A poll by Bankrate named it the third most progressive city in the UK when it comes to tackling social and environmental challenges.

Ways to Study Abroad
Studying abroad, whether undergraduate or graduate, offers an essential experience and education opportunity for many students. Studies have shown that students who go abroad tend to perform better in their degrees and are more likely to hold graduate jobs than those who don't. Based on this information, De Montfort University also offers its students the opportunity to study abroad. In addition, it also includes students in many exchange programs. Students from various countries of the world can study at the university.
De Montfort University has an Embedded College called the International College (DMUIC), which offers integrated programs for students outside the UK. Run in partnership with the Oxford International Education Group, DMUIC offers undergraduate and postgraduate pathways leading to a degree award from De Montfort University.
DMUIC provides students with all the support they need to succeed in their continuing undergraduate education. DMUIC offers the first stages of the International Incorporated Bachelor, Pre-Top Up program, and International Incorporated Master's programs.
After completing phase 3 of phase 1 (and/or phase 2) at DMUIC, education can be continued directly at De Montfort University.
DMUIC is located in the heart of the DMU campus - a few minutes’ walk from Leicester’s vibrant, multicultural city and just over an hour's train ride from London. It is possible to automatically become a part of the DMU from the day one starts training at DMUIC. DMU is a truly international university with students from over 130 countries.
