The Leicester-based De Montfort University (DMU) has officially launched their campus in Dubai Academic City, its first international branch campus outside of the UK.

The new DMU Dubai branch will offer students a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses including cybersecurity, architecture, psychology, accounting and finance, engineering, human resource management, and fashion marketing.

The campus itself is purpose-built, with multiple classrooms, a 700-seater auditorium, library, IT, robotics, mechanical and electrical labs, along with architecture, fashion, and design studios.

The Dubai campus is being run in partnership between DMU and Study World Higher Education Services, the academic services provider for DMU Dubai.

“Study World has over two decades of experience in providing a range of educational services in partnership with international universities worldwide and this association with DMU in Dubai will prove highly beneficial for students in the UAE and the wider region. Our international network will help attract students from over 120 countries and we look forward to providing high-quality, employment-focused degrees to students,” said Dr. Vidhya Vinod, CEO of Study World Higher Education Services.

A plaque commemorating the official opening by Professor Katie Normington, Vice-Chancellor of DMU was unveiled at the opening last week.

DMU Dubai opening coincides with DMU’s participation in Expo 2020 as the founding partner of the UK Pavilion, operated by the UK Government’s Department of International Trade (DIT).

Over the course of the Expo, DMU is exhibiting much of its leading research in areas like sustainable fashion, smart reuse of waste plastics and creative applications for artificial intelligence.

“We know that regardless of discipline, developing graduates for successful trajectories beyond university is of critical importance. Enabling our graduates to have a positive impact, whether that be through creating value that is economic, social, cultural, or environmental – or indeed a mixture of each, is the embodiment of our success,” said Manjeet Ridon, provost DMU Dubai.
