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.
Opportunities and application dates
Throughout the 2020-2021 academic year we will continually add new DMU Global Online Learning opportunities. Application and deadline dates may vary, so make sure to check the details of the experience that you are interested in.
