DMU works to deliver an unrivalled student experience, making ourselves a workplace community that people want to be a part of, carrying out world-leading research activities, and contributing to the development of an informed, fair and sustainable society.

A new postgraduate portfolio has also been created in block mode for delivery in October 2023.
Faculty / Directorate
Located at the heart of De Montfort University’s beautiful city centre campus, our faculty is based in the specially-purposed Hugh Aston Building - with its new extension for executive education called The Yard - and the historic Leicester Castle. Our facilities accommodate a range of learning approaches, from lectures and seminars to interactive learning and a variety of spaces for group work and self-study.
The faculty comprises two leading professional schools: Leicester Castle Business School (LCBS) and Leicester De Montfort Law School (LDLS). This year, the faculty has been restructured to create two large schools within the LCBS: the School of Accounting, Finance and Economics and the School of Leadership, Management and Marketing. The faculty is strongly focused on three areas of activity - excellent learning and teaching; impactful research; and enterprise development, with cross-cutting themes of sustainability, internationalisation and public good.
We are a faculty with a very international outlook, and a commitment to educating and supporting talent from diverse backgrounds from the local, regional, national and international communities.
We are looking to appoint an International Student Tutor on a fixed term maternity cover (up until March 2024 or upon the postholders return, whichever is sooner).

Our International Student Tutor team’s main role is to provide academic and pastoral support for our growing population of undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world.

You will need to be an excellent intercultural communicator with a strong awareness of the challenges that International Students face in adapting to UK Higher Education.
