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 Winter of 2017 between January and February. Applications for the next round are currently open and you will be able to find more information about the scheme and how to apply on our Information for Graduates page.
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. Graduates also have the chance to impress a potential future employer.
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 Winter of 2017 between January and February and we are currently accepting proposal forms from interested organisations.
In short, DMU Graduate Champions is a placement to be prized.
