On-campus experiences

Alongside our overseas opportunities, we have a range of exciting internationally-themed experiences that take place on campus at DMU. Our aim is for these to be accessible and open to all students, without the need to travel. These opportunities will help you develop an appreciation for new cultures, gain a better understanding of global issues and languages, as well as enhance soft skills, such as communication, self-confidence and teamworking.


Our on-campus experiences and funding are open to all DMU students. Applications for term 1 opportunities launch on Monday 20 September 2021. Please check the individual opportunity pages for the deadline dates, as they may vary.
