Incoming Students

We welcome incoming students from our partner institutions under the Erasmus+ programme and International Exchange. These pages will help you to apply for a study placement with us. We look forward to meeting you!

To apply for Erasmus+ study with us, an active exchange agreement with your home institution must be in place prior to your application. Please see a list of our current partner institutions.

If we do not currently have an Erasmus+ exchange agreement with your home institution, you may be able to apply as a fee-paying student on the Study Abroad programme.

We unfortunately do not currently offer internships or Erasmus+ traineeships for incoming students.

How to apply

Contact your home institution for details of how to apply for an Erasmus+, or International Exchange.

Your home institution will nominate you for a place and send your details to us. This is usually around February to March in the year prior to starting at DMU. Once you have been nominated we will email you the full application process including module information.


The application deadline for 2017/2018 academic year

Student application deadline for semester one and year-long exchange is Monday 1 May 2017

We cannot accept students for semester two only.

Incomplete applications will be withdrawn after the deadline.

Important Information

All modules are delivered in English. Applicants should be at 6.0 IELTS standard Arts, Design and Technology subjects and 6.5 for Business and Law, Social Sciences and Humanities subjects. We require a proof of any qualification demonstrating a minimum of level B2 according to the Common European Framework.

In the absence of the above requirements, participants will be asked to send us their supervisor statement indicating participant English language proficiency according to the Common European Framework. Please note students requiring a visa for a full year study at DMU will need to show formal language qualifications. A list of the approved language tests will be sent to students at application stage.

Non-EU/EEA students who will be applying for a Tier 4 visa in order to enter the UK will have to provide proof of their English language proficiency to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) as part of the process. For further information, see the UKVI website.

We offer free English language support while you are studying – two hours per week for undergraduate and research students, and three hours per week for postgraduate students. Classes are usually optional, but we may ask you to attend if we feel you would benefit.
