#DMUglobal in New York

More than 1,000 students and staff from De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) will start 2018 with a bang as they travel to New York in January for our second #DMUglobal visit to The Big Apple.

The trip will include students from dozens of different countries on 30 courses from right across the university, offering each a tailored experience which will bring to life the topics and skills covered in the classroom. It forms part of DMU’s #LoveInternational campaign to demonstrate that openness and tolerance are crucial values in our society, especially in the wake of the EU Referendum and the US Presidential Election.


Film Studies students will go to the Museum of the Moving Image, Advertising and Branding students will study the scale and spectacle of Times Square, Forensic Science students will be invited to understand the inner workings of the New York Supreme Court and Engineering students will learn about industry-leading construction at the Skyscraper Museum and Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum.

Students will also get the opportunity to take part in some cultural activities, including ice skating in Central Park, visiting the Statue of Liberty, ascending to the iconic Top of the Rock and watching a live NBA basketball game.

We will be following the adventures of our students throughout their trip on the DMU website and across social media. Search #DMUglobal on Twitter, visit our Facebook page, Instagram page and Snapchat account.
