The Explore UK programme runs trips during term-time to a range of towns, cities and cultural attractions throughout Great Britain and Europe. Previous trips have included Oxford, Scotland, Liverpool, York, Stonehenge, Wales and Paris.
It is a great way to see some of the most famous places in the UK and Europe and make new friends.
Where have we been so far this year?

Scotland Weekend (Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands)
When's the next trip?
If you're in Leicester over Christmas, we'll be running an all-day trip to London on Tuesday 19th December.
More information and booking will be available here by Friday 1st December.
How can I book a place on a trip?
You can book places for trips through the DMU online store. Bookings usually open at least two weeks before each trip. We will email all international students to let you know when bookings start for a new trip. Check the programme below for more information and for booking links.
If you are interested in joining a trip, we recommend booking your place as soon as you can, to avoid disappointment. Our trips are usually very popular and often sell out days in advance.
Frequently asked questions
Can I bring my friends or partner on a trip?
Yes. Each student can usually book several places on the online store.
I'm interested in a trip but it's already sold out. How can I get a place?
We try to open trips up to as many students as possible, but for practical and organisational reasons, there will usually be an upper limit to the number of people that we can take. For this reason, we suggest booking promptly onto any trips that you're interested in.
I can't use the online store because I don't have a credit/debit card. What can I do?
If you don't yet have a debit or credit card, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to assist.
I'm a UK student. Can I join the trip too?
Yes. Home students are very welcome to join Explore UK trips.
Can I bring my children on a trip?
It is usually possible to book children onto trips. If you are planning to do this, please contact us directly at email@example.com and we will advise you further.
What if I book a place on a trip but then can't attend?
Before you make your booking, please check to make sure that you will be able to join the trip on that date. If you've booked a place but then find you can't attend, you will need to inform us in writing as soon as possible. Our refunds policy is available here.
