About us

We believe that experiencing new cultures, broadening horizons and learning new languages has a positive impact on individuals and society as a whole. We aim to give our students and staff the opportunity to cooperate with peers globally through meaningful international engagements that take place in-person and online. Our mission is to:

  • Embed internationalisation on campus
  • Enhance academic study through overseas experiential learning 
  • Collaborate with universities globally to develop and evolve partnerships to support student exchange
  • Raise the cultural awareness and enhance the language skills of our students 

Our values

Our work has been underpinned by six core values:

  • Focusing on the academic value of opportunities, working closely with teaching staff to embed international experiences within the curriculum.
  • Designing activities that empower, transform and support the development of our students so that they have the skills and knowledge to succeed in the future.
  • Organising safe and supported experiences, where all students and staff receive extensive guidance and preparation before going overseas.
  • Ensuring equal access to opportunities, by doing all we can to remove barriers to participation.
  • Offering value for money to DMU students, and helping to offset the costs of participation by offering funding for all participants.
  • Delivering a high-quality student experience and listening to feedback to help improve our service.

Sustainability statement

We recognise the impact that international travel can have on the environment, and are making a range of changes to DMU Global to educate students and staff about sustainable travel, and to reduce our carbon footprint. We are taking practical steps to address UN SDG 13, Climate Action. These actions can be grouped into 3 key areas:

1. Educating students and staff about sustainability and climate change
2. Making a financial contribution to offset or inset our carbon emissions
3. Offering more online international experiences that don’t require travel
