We are committed to ensuring that all students can access international experiences during their time here at DMU, whether it’s a short-term academically focused trip, volunteering experience or studying year abroad.
Our experiences are not just about travelling abroad. We also offer internationally-themed campus-based and online opportunities to allow students that cannot or do not want to travel overseas the chance to take part.
Who is eligible?
Our overseas opportunities and funding is for full fee paying students that are currently enrolled and studying on a DMU Leicester undergraduate or postgraduate programme.
On-campus & Online experiences
Our on-campus & online experiences are open to all students enrolled at DMU. You can apply for and participate on multiple opportunities, but priority will be given to first-time applicants.
Students are eligible to participate in and receive funding for 1 overseas DMU Global opportunity per academic year. There are no restrictions for participation in on-campus and online experiences.
Whilst we try to be as open and as inclusive as possible, funding and participation on overseas opportunities is based on your student status. The following categories are not eligible: sandwich year study and work placement students, Foundation programmes, students at partner institutions, branch campuses and the DMU International College.
Furthermore, students that have completed or interrupted their studies or are a debtor to the university are not able to eligible to participate.
What if I am in my final year of study and graduate this year?
Final year students (graduating in summer) are eligible to participate on DMU Global opportunities up until 31st August of that year.
