More about DMU in Dubai

DMU is delighted to be taking part in Expo 2020 Dubai from October 2021 - March 2022 as a founding partner of the UK Pavilion. This comes at a pivotal moment in our 150 year history as we open our first international branch campus, DMU Dubai.

Expo 2020 Dubai is the latest in a series of worldwide events beginning with the first World Expo, the iconic Great Exhibition of 1853, held in the Crystal Palace in London. The last, held in Milan in 2015, was the largest tourist attraction in the world that year.

We will have a continuous presence within the UK Pavilion throughout the six-month duration of Expo 2020 Dubai. Our staff, students, and alumni will be in attendance, showcasing the incredible innovation, research, and benefits of DMU to a global audience.
