DMU Global Online Learning

DMU Global Online Learning is a new initiative launching for the 2020-2021 academic year that will offer a range of new and exciting international experiences for DMU students, without the need to travel overseas. The aims of the programme are to:

  • Add a new, online dimension to the DMU Global programme, complementing our overseas trips and campus-based international activity.
  • Remove barriers to participation by creating online international experiences that are inclusive and accessible to all DMU students.
  • Offer students the chance to meet and engage with students at universities globally in peer-to-peer learning activities.
  • Provide a platform for students to engage with businesses, employers, alumni, charities and universities to explore a range of educational and cultural topics.

Types of opportunities

Our aim is to make the DMU Global Online Learning experiences as accessible and varied as possible so that all students can participate. We are therefore developing a range of experiences that require different levels of engagement from just a couple of hours to sustained learning over a number of weeks. DMU Global Online Learning will cover a range of academic and co-curricular themes and topics, categorised as follows:


Online experiences that are designed and led by academic staff at DMU and focused on learning related to specific modules or programmes of study. These opportunities are only open to specific students.


Employability and enterprise experiences open to all DMU students that are focused on skill development, learning about business & enterprise and preparing students for a global workplace.


Broader intercultural topics and global issues form the basis of these experiences that are open to all DMU students. The focus is on peer-to-peer learning, sharing cultural experiences and discussing current affairs.
