#DMUworks is the university’s ambitious programme to ensure our students are work-ready in an increasingly competitive and global jobs marketplace.

As well as ensuring our students gain the necessary technical skills through their courses, our aim is to develop graduates who are professional, adaptable and business-aware. We want DMU students to have the skills and qualities that today’s employers are looking for.

Through #DMUworks, the university offers a wide range of opportunities, in the UK and internationally, including:

  • Professional experiences, placements, internships and volunteering
  • Work-readiness training, coaching and development
  • Business insider visits

Devised in response to the national demand for better graduate skills and, with our students’ ambitions, aspirations and success at its core, #DMUworks takes a fresh, flexible and creative approach to helping make our students work-ready.
