#DMUglobal is our sector-leading international experience programme for De Montfort University students, which aims to enrich studies, broaden cultural horizons and develop key skills valued by employers.
Through #DMUglobal, we offer students an exciting range of opportunities to study, work and volunteer overseas as part of their degree helping them to become globally-minded citizens. Our opportunities include:
- Academic-led trips
- Erasmus+ and International Exchange
- Summer schools
- Internships and Placements
- Student-led trips
Since the launch of the programme in 2014, we have had some great achievements:
Following participation on #DMUglobal experiences 92% of students thought the trip added value to their course and 77% of students said they were more likely to consider employment abroad after their studies.
Support for students
We are committed to widening participation and ensure all students can participate in the programme by providing a bursary to all participants on overseas opportunities.
How can you help?
Even though we provide a bursary for every student, this doesn’t cover the whole cost of the trips. Students have to cover the rest of the costs themselves. A Global trip to an EU country for example, costs the student £250 of their own money (on average).
Your gift today of £250 could make a radical difference to a student at DMU, allowing them to take part in a potentially life changing international experience.
