Results day support

Whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate or apprentice, you might feel apprehensive about receiving your end of year results.

Here are some hints and tips to help guide you through the pre-release period, no matter what your academic outcomes might be.

On results release day

Results are released on a staggered basis; it is important to check your faculty communications for the correct day and time of your course's release. Your faculty will make your results available on the My Results tile on My DMU and provide results guidance information. Please make sure you read this information carefully, and if you have any queries contact your Programme Team in the first instance. Alternatively, contact your Student Advice Centre.

Practise self-care

It is important to look after yourself during this busy time. Make plans with friends, get a good night’s sleep and do some physical activity. These are all important ways of looking after our wellbeing and can have a really positive effect on our outlook and how we feel.

The Healthy DMU Hub has lots of up to date information, hints and tips on looking after your health and wellbeing.

Speak to our Careers Team

If you're worried your results may have an impact on your career plan or intended next steps, please don’t panic.

There are lots of resources that can support you on the Careers Team Skills Hub.
