We are committed to ensuring that all DMU Leicester students can access international experiences during their time here at DMU. We offer students the chance to participate in a combination of overseas, on-campus and virtual international experiences. 

Who can take part?

Overseas opportunities

Our overseas opportunities are open to full-fee paying students that are currently enrolled and studying on a DMU Leicester undergraduate or postgraduate programme.

On-campus & virtual experiences

Our on-campus & virtual 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.

If eligible for the opportunity (see the eligibility section in the advert), students can participate in and receive funding for up to two overseas opportunities per academic year (trips taking place between 1 September 2024 and 31 September 2025). This includes:

Who is not eligible?
