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 opportunities on campus 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 undergraduate or postgraduate programme.
Our on-campus experiences and funding are open to all students enrolled at DMU.
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 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.
Final year students (graduating in summer) are eligible to participate on DMU Global opportunities up until 31st August of that year.
Selections are made based on your online application, and specifically how you answer the two motivation statements. The Trip Lead will also consider other factors such as your academic performance. Most opportunities have a specific eligibility criteria listed on the advert, and this is used to help review applications
