A new way to learn
Our new student-centred course structure, known as Education 2030, is designed to give you the headspace to absorb and better engage with your learning materials. By studying one module at a time through 'block learning', you'll get feedback faster, be able to work more closely with your tutors and have more time to be part of your DMU community. It's already proven popular with our first cohort of undergraduate students, with 93% stating they enjoyed studying one module at a time.
