Academic-led trips

In the first round of overseas trips for 2019/20, academic opportunities will be in exciting destinations such as China, Malaysia, Singapore, India and Milan.

Business students have the chance to appreciate and understand the complexities of innovation in the context of sustainability, through a visit to San Francisco.

Through their trip to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, English language students will gain a deeper understanding of the ways in which culture, language, and history intersect and the ideological struggles of the 20th Century.

Elsewhere, Psychology students can visit Paris to see the tools and history of medicine, and will be able to explore the relationship between brain structure, function and mental health.

Employability experiences

All DMU students have the opportunity to develop their employability skills with #DMUworks, our exciting careers programme to help all our students become work-ready. In this round, employability focused trips include a freelancing focused trip to Estonia and an innovation and entrepreneurial experience in Boston.


Students can also spend time abroad by volunteering overseas with #DMUlocal. There are opportunities to deliver interactive English teaching workshops in Bangkok, Thailand, support refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Calais and make a positive impact within local communities in Ahmedabad, India.
