DMU Global Online Learning


DMU Global Online Learning is a new initiative that offers a range of exciting, virtual international experiences for DMU students, without the need to travel overseas.

Our aim is to make the DMU Global Online Learning experiences as accessible and varied as possible so that all students can participate. We have developed a range of experiences that require different levels of engagement from just a couple of hours to sustained learning over a number of weeks. Find out more by watching our video…

Types of opportunities

DMU Global Online Learning will cover a range of academic and co-curricular themes and topics. Some activities will be designed and delivered by DMU academic staff for students on specific academic programmes, whilst many of our employability and cultural experiences will be open to all students.


Online experiences that are designed and led by academic staff at DMU and focused on learning related to specific modules or programmes of study. These opportunities are only open to specific students.


Employability and enterprise experiences open to all DMU students that are focused on skill development, learning about business & enterprise and preparing students for a global workplace.


Broader intercultural topics and global issues form the basis of these experiences that are open to all DMU students. The focus is on peer-to-peer learning, sharing cultural experiences and discussing current affairs.
