Outside of Europe



All DMU students that meet the eligibility criteria for an opportunity are able to receive the following DMU Global bursaries in a single academic year (1st September 2018 to 31st August 2019):

  • One bursary for an Academic-led trip
  • One bursary for an Extra-curricular opportunity. These include: DSU trips; volunteering; employability trips; internships; summer schools.

Part-time and Distance Learning students are eligible to receive only one bursary in a single academic year.

How will I receive my DMU Global bursary?

If you are responsible for booking travel, the bursary payment will be paid directly into your bank account. Once you have accepted your place, we aim to pay the bursary to your account at least 2 months before your trip departs.

If travel bookings are being made by your Faculty, the bursary will be deducted from the total cost of the booking. You will then be asked to make a payment for the remainder of the cost to your faculty through the DMU online store.
