Book your viewing Stream schedule

Our live streams cover a range of topics and are relaxed and informal – they’re an opportunity for you to ask your questions. These could be questions like, how do I write my personal statement, how do I decide if a university is right for me if I can't attend on-campus Open Days, or what's it like to study online or through blended learning? From Q&As with current students to discussions with our advisers, they are designed to help you get your questions answered first-hand from the people who know it best.

You can also gain the full interactive DMU experience with course-specific information by booking your place on our Digital Open Days on Saturday 13 February or Saturday 13 March.
