DMU has a good reputation as one of the better of the last batch of new unis - there are some subjects (possibly the more vocational?) it does particularly well in, but others where there are probably better options - it does rather depend on the subject and on your DD's expected grades and aspirations. If she is predicted AAA she could no doubt aim higher - but if DMU is the only place where she can study "Integrated electronic basket-weaving" and she is highly committed to it, she will be more likely to make the best use of what's on offer. I know of one "friend of a friend" studying midwifery there, and I've heard of some quite good design-type courses, but have no other personal experience. Several of the national papers do quite detailed league tables eg

where you can sort on a number of factors, including student satisfaction, drop-out rates, graduate employment and entry standards, as well as look at separate tables for different subjects, but ideally you should find someone recruiting graduates into the particular area she's interested in and ask "how highly would you rate a degree from DMU compared to.." one of her other choices.
Is this for Sep 2009 entry or have you got another year to investigate?
