International student support

By coming to De Montfort University (DMU) you are embarking on an exciting and life-changing adventure, but you may still need some support along the way.

As an international student, you will have a range of support available to you that begins before you set foot on campus and continues right up until the time you graduate.

Arriving at DMU

We can provide information and guidance if you're planning your journey, and there is information on our website here about transport from different UK airports to DMU. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with us - we'll be happy to assist.

We can advise you on many of the issues related to living and studying at DMU; you'll find more information on these pages, or please contact us at

Airport coach pick-up service

We operate a pick-up service from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) on key arrival dates in June, July, August and September. We recommend booking your flights to coincide with this free service. You can read more about the coach service and check dates and times here.

International Welcome Week

Taking place from Monday 18th until Friday 22nd September, International Welcome Week includes information sessions, day trips and social activities - it's a great way to settle in and get to know the city and campus before the start of your studies.
