Placements are part of the fabric of DMU, with students across all courses having the option of undertaking some form of work experience.

We have a long history of partnering with local, national and international employers to provide students with essential work experience, in preparation for the graduate recruitment market.

Our services to employers

Our aim is to make your recruitment as easy as possible and we recognise one size does not fit all.

That’s why we have dedicated placement teams to work with you around your requirements. 

  • We have an online student portal to advertise your roles, at no cost to you; we will then actively market to relevant students to promote them.
  • If you require we can collate all applications and then provide you one email after the closing date. 
  • To make the process even easier, after you have shortlisted we can arrange a day of interviews here at the university and create the timetable.  
  • Bespoke recruitment processes can also be created in partnership with you.


We recognise that without employers, our students cannot develop their employability skills - this is why the above services are completely free of charge.
