De Montfort University (DMU)’s biggest-ever overseas visit to New York was such a success that plans have been announced to do it all again – this time in Berlin. Preparations are under way to take students to the German capital in June 2017, allowing first and second years to go abroad after they finish their exams.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Dominic Shellard announced the next major #DMUglobal visit while in New York, where over 1000 students and staff from 17 courses spent a week taking part in academic activities and cultural experiences.
He said: “Following the huge enthusiasm for the New York #DMUglobal visit, I felt it was only fair to announce a new, extraordinary visit that all students would be invited to take advantage of.
“If possible, I would like to beat the number of students who travelled to New York and will work closely with the students’ union president and our #DMUglobal colleagues to see if we can inspire 1,500 DMU students to come with us to experience one of the most fascinating and exciting cities in the world.”
“There are so many academic possibilities in Berlin and a real opportunity for our staff and trip leads to devise more outstanding itineraries which bring new depth to their courses and add enormously to the student experience.”
As part of the visit, the alumni team are going to be hosting a number of events in the capital, including a question and answer panel session, for students to ask the advice of graduates working in their chosen professions, and a drinks reception where alumni will have the opportunity to reunite and connect with other graduates who are living and working in Germany.
We would love to hear from any alumni who are interested in getting involved. Further details of these events will be sent out shortly, but in the meantime, please contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest and to receive more information.
