DMU Graduate Champions
At DMU you study with us and graduate with us, and you will always be part of the DMU family.
DMU is committed to offering as much support as it can to graduates so they are able to seek out essential experience in specialist areas that will help them embark on a successful career.
This is why the university is proud to provide an innovative scheme called DMU Graduate Champions.
DMU Graduate Champions offers recent graduates the chance to take up a paid, 6 week long, internship with a leading UK business to enhance their CV and help them stand out from the crowd in a furiously competitive jobs market.
Each graduate will be contracted and paid by DMU to work 18.5 hours a week for 6 weeks, and the university will pay the Living Wage which currently stands at £8.25 an hour.
The next round of the scheme will take place in the Summer of 2016 and applications are now open, allowing those who are to graduate from an undergraduate degree in the Summer of 2016 to apply. Please visit the Information for Graduates page for more information about the scheme.
The benefits for our graduates, and the businesses they work for, are clear.
Organisations have free access to some of the brightest and best graduates in the UK today meaning they are given the opportunity to benefit from an intensive injection of graduate-level expertise and innovation.
For our graduates, these internships will bring sought-after opportunities to gain valuable insight into graduate-level work that is relevant to their chosen degree and the career path they wish to follow. If you are an organisation interested in providing an internship through the scheme please go to the Information for Organisations page for more details. The next round of the scheme will run throughout the Summer of 2016 and we are currently accepting proposal forms from interested organisations.
They also have the chance to impress a potential future employer.
In short, DMU Graduate Champions is a placement to be prized.
