As long as you are eligible to take part in the opportunity, selection decisions will be based on the quality of your answers for the questions above. Below we have included some tips for writing a good application:
Accepting your place
You will receive the outcome of your application by email within 14 days of the opportunity deadline closing. If you are offered a place, you will need to complete the following steps to formally accept your place:
If you don’t formally accept your place within 10 days of receiving your offer email then the offer may be withdrawn and you could lose your place on the opportunity.
After you have formally accepted your place, you will be invited to attend a DMU Global briefing session. This will give you more information about your trip as well as the next steps you need to take (e.g. making travel plans).
If bookings are being made by your Faculty, the bursary will be deducted from the total cost of the booking. You will be asked to make a payment for the remainder of the cost to your faculty through the DMU online store. This will be communicated to you by your trip lead at a later date.
What happens if I change my mind?
You will have up to 14 days from submitting your additional details to withdraw from the DMU Global opportunity. If you no longer wish to participate in the opportunity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important: if you withdraw from the opportunity after 14 days of submitting your additional details you will be liable for costs incurred to the university, including full repayment of the DMU Global Bursary.
How will my DMU Global opportunity be recognised?
All opportunities are formally recorded on your HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report). Some opportunities are directly linked to academic modules and may include some form of assessment.
