International Exchange

International Exchange offers DMU students the exciting opportunity to study overseas at one of our partner universities in the USA, Canada, Japan, South Korea and Macau as part of your undergraduate degree studies. You can read about the experiences of DMU students that have been on international exchange here.

Application Process

Depending on the academic programmes on offer, you can choose to study at one of DMU’s International Exchange partners, listed in the table below. Once you have decided on your preferred destination, you will need to complete our online application form. As part of the application you can choose a first and second choice destination. We kindly ask applicants to only submit one application.

As there are limited places to study at each institution, the selection process will be competitive and therefore we encourage students to prepare their application comprehensively before submission.

Please note for the most popular destinations, we will also interview students following the initial shortlisting. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to a short interview within 2 weeks of the application deadline passing.

If you have any questions regarding the application process and selecting the right partner university, please contact us on
