Virtual Summer Schools


These opportunities are open to all DMU students. Application and opportunity dates will vary for the different summer school opportunities, therefore we recommend that you check that you are available for the duration of the course before applying.

Please check our eligibility criteria for further details.


Despite us not being able to offer overseas summer schools this year, DMU Global in cooperation with our partner universities globally are able to offer a range of virtual summer schools for you to take part in. There are a range of topics on offer from different universities, with these courses giving you an excellent opportunity to meet students from around the world and engage in a specific subject area that is related to your degree, or entirely new to you!

The list below includes the available summer schools, including the cost (if applicable), deadline to apply, and link to the partner university website where you can find more information about the dates and courses on offer.
