Excellent teaching is at the heart of our commitment to professional, creative and vocational education. Our passionate and enthusiastic lecturers have earned 18 National Teaching Fellowships, making DMU one of the top three universities in the UK on this measure of teaching excellence. With work under way on the £136m transformation of our Leicester city centre campus, we are seeking outstanding academics to work in this dynamic, ambitious environment.
