Welcome activities

University is your new beginning – it's where you can find your people, your purpose, your place in the world. 

When you arrive at DMU for the very first time there will be a lot to take in, so we’ve organised a special event to give you a taste of the amazing DMU experience. 

On Wednesday 1 February our supportive and nurturing community of academics, students and expert advisers will be on hand to support you in finding out more about what to expect at DMU and how you can get involved in fantastic opportunities during your time here. 


DMU Welcome Event

Wednesday 1 February, 11am–3pm (11am–midday quiet hour) 

Find out more about the activities you can get involved in alongside your degree and much more. 

This event will take place in the Campus Centre and staff will be on-hand to answer your questions about starting your DMU journey. You can find out about the support services available to you or discuss employability opportunities. There will be lots of freebies for you to collect too!
