Enhancing the educational experience

FR Fundraising Badge LR

At DMU, we are proud to provide opportunities for students which enrich and enhance both their student life and future employability. Through the opportunities fund we are able to support students across a range of extra curricular activities whether that be competing on the sports pitch, travelling to broaden cultural horizons, or providing resources to realise the visions of the most creative minds.

You can support all opportunities at DMU through the opportunities fund, or choose a specific area of interest.

With the support of our alumni and friends, our students really are 'Made from More'.



Our Opportunities fund enables us to offer support to students wherever it will provide the greatest benefit, to enrich and enhance their time at university and to provide vital materials, skills and experiences that also increase employability. By giving to our general Opportunities Fund, you allow us the flexibility to respond to the needs of our students and provide support where the need is greatest.

Through DMU Global funding, De Montfort University students can experience a range of travel opportunities which enrich studies, broaden cultural horizons and develop key skills valued by employers.

DMU Sport

Being a part of a sporting club or team is one of the most important and memorable experiences many alumni had at university. Regardless of the sport, and the level played at, friendships forged within these clubs continued to bind long into adulthood. As well as the obvious physical health benefits of sporting activity it was and is, for many, a crucial component of sound mental health.
