Opportunities & Initiatives Webinar


This opportunity is open to all DMU students. The maximum number of places for this event is 15. Please check our eligibility criteria for further details.


In cooperation with our partner, Pagoda Projects, DMU Global will be offering twenty online events throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. All events are employability focused and aim to give students an insight into topics related to the international working world.

What can you do alongside your studies to help your community? Have you ever wondered how you can start your own charity to help a cause that matters to you? What does volunteering involve? How can you help promote human rights? How can your voice be heard?

Two guest speakers will be able to answer some of those questions and many more that you may have. Join us to find out more about their journeys and get a few new ideas on what you could do to help your community by taking actions that matter to you. After introducing their journey so far, our two speakers will happily answer questions and give you advice!
