Choosing the right university is a major decision for your child. As a parent or guardian, you’ll want to help them to find a course and university that they’ll love and will get them where they want to be in life.
We too are committed to supporting them every step of the way. To answer your questions about helping your child through the various stages of making a university application, this page contains explanations and resources about things to consider. We’ve also created a digital student toolkit where your child can get advice and support through their application, or they can have a one-to-one chat with current students and advisers.
A great way to see all that DMU has to offer is to visit one of our Open Days with your child, where you can take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. These packed events are the best way to gain a feel of what DMU life is really like, should your child choose to study with us.
Our innovative and inclusive approach to learning, Education 2030, means that your child will learn in a focused ‘block’ teaching format, where they study one subject at a time instead of several at once. Students will benefit from more time to engage and focus on each topic and receive faster assessment feedback. They will get a real sense of belonging by working more closely with the same teaching team and group of course mates on each block, and have a better study-life balance overall, leaving students free to enjoy all the other important aspects of university life.
Our award-winning careers support and employability service, DMU Works, is here to open doors for you and to help you find your dream career. It provides you with guaranteed work experience opportunities, flexible career support tailored to your needs, placement years that count towards your degree, and unlimited digital tools such as LinkedIn Learning courses, practice interviews, self-assessments, and instant personalised CV feedback through the DMU Works Skills Hub.
