DMU open day is a big hit with international student

By Alex Leadbitter

An A-level student was impressed last week after she attended a De Montfort University open day to find the university welcoming and accepting.

Natalia Kusnierz (18) is a Polish born A-level student who has lived and studied in England for 3 years and is currently deciding where she would like to attend university to study psychology.

She said: “I was attracted to De Montfort because of the course that it offered but after visiting the university in person I realised how committed they are to helping and supporting its international students.

“I visited DMU on an open day and was really impressed with the way they were so accepting for students not originally from the UK. I felt like I’d really be accepted if I came here.”

With events such as #DMUpride, #LoveInternational and the progress of #DMUglobal, it is clear that De Montfort does not shy away from celebrating diversity at the university.

Ms Kusnierz added: “Obviously there are loads of different factors that will influence where I end up studying, but knowing that DMU is so accommodating to international students is really important to me.”

De Montfort University has seen a huge rise in applications in 2016 both from UK and International students.

In 2015, acceptances from EU students have risen by 75% to De Montfort and by 25% from UK students.

With this huge increase in acceptances, DMU is now in the top ten most popular universities in the UK and its celebration of different cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds seems to be a prominent reason for the university’s success.
