At DMU, it’s our goal to help every student reach their goal and to ensure you have the best learning experience possible, and we are working hard to introduce a new course structure, known as Education 2030. The majority of you joining us in September will learn in a focused ‘block’ teaching format where you study one subject at a time instead of several at once. Not only will you have more time to engage with your learning, you will also receive faster feedback through more regular assessment and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life – meaning your new home at DMU is a supportive and nurturing learning community.
Of course one-size doesn’t fit all, and there will be variations based on the professional requirements of your course. Rest assured you will still benefit from the same excellent experience, supportive environment, and friendships which last well beyond your time on campus – making university your new beginning.
Dr Natasha Katuta Mwila, Programme Leader for Business Management BA (Hons), provides an overview of Education 2030 - our new student-centred approach to teaching.
