Why choose a course starting in January?

There are plenty of reasons to start your DMU journey in January and here are just a few examples explaining why it could be the right choice for you.

Further your education

Whether you want to direct yourself towards a new career goal, become an expert in your area, or make yourself stand out to future employers, starting a postgraduate course in January is a great opportunity. You can enhance your learning, gain new skills and strengthen your position to join the jobs market after completing your studies.

distance-learning

Take a break

After a sustained period in education, taking a break from study can leave you feeling refreshed and ready to fully engage with postgraduate learning. Choosing a January start still allows time for travel plans, internship or placement opportunities and recuperation without requiring the commitment of a full year out.

employability

Alternative job market entry

In an increasingly competitive graduate jobs market, finishing your studies at a different time of year to the peak graduate entry can decrease the volume of competition. Our award-winning careers support means that by studying with us you will benefit from our careers commitment, giving you access to work experience opportunities, help with CVs and the job interview process as well as life long support as a DMU graduate.

More time to decide

The pressure of applying for postgraduate study while still completing the final year of an undergraduate degree can be hard to balance. Applying for a course with a later start date can give you time to reflect and choose a programme that genuinely matches your career aspirations and passions.

International students

If you missed an application deadline, struggled to get necessary paperwork in order or couldn’t travel in September, starting a course in January means you don’t have to wait a whole year before continuing your higher education journey. Check out our international homepage for more information.
