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 5 December and Saturday 16 January.

Upcoming DMUTalks streams

Applying to University

Applying to University focuses on a student's transition from school and college to university. Each episode is live streamed and has a panel of experienced staff, current students and DMU graduates, to provide you with invaluable insight into how to approach UCAS, choose your university and find your perfect course. 

Ask The Expert

Ask the Expert will focus on teaching and research at DMU through discussions of some of the extraordinary problems that we are facing in today's world. 

Each live episode will give you a feel of how we aim to develop our students as critical thinkers through their learning experience. Our diverse panel of students and lecturers will discuss current news and trends such as the economic chaos and uncertainty caused by the pandemic, the political landscape, the challenges of navigating the book industry for black british writers, the dark side of fast fashion and the psychological impact of lockdown on mental health.

Subject Support focuses on students who will discuss how they chose their course and provide hints and tips to help you make the right decision when choosing yours. It also covers subject-specific topics, such as interview advice for Nursing students, political discussions with contacts in our Business and Law faculty, portfolio guidance for our design courses and career advice to enhance your employability prospects.

Applying to University: Student welfare and support at university - COVID and beyond | Tuesday 1 December, 6:30pm

Our advisers talk to lots of students and parents who feel that university is a sink or swim environment, a survival of the fittest. In reality that could not be further from the truth, and we have an extensive range of staff to support you academically, financially, with your mental health and so much more to help you overcome any barriers you might face and have a fantastic experience.

Staff and current students will discuss the support available, issues that have been faced and how they have been overcome.

One-to-one conversation will be available following this session for those of you that feel a chat would help reassure you and to answer any questions you may have in confidence.

Applying to University: Covid and moving from London | Tuesday 8 December, 4:30pm

We understand that students may be confused or unsure about relocating during these uncertain times, so we have arranged a panel of students who all relocated from London to pursue their studies at DMU. This talk is ideal for any student who is looking to move away from the capital.

The live stream will run for approximately 30 minutes and will be a discussion about why our student panel chose to move from London, what the benefits are and what it's like studying during the Covid-19 pandemic.

DMUTalks: How to stay motivated during the COVID pandemic | Thursday 10 December, 6:30pm

Our lives have changed in ways we could not have imagined since March of this year. Schools and colleges were closed, universities have moved to blended learning and our engagements have often been via a screen rather than face-to-face. These are tough times for many and it can be hard to keep positive and motivated and to keep moving forwards.

This livestream features a blend of staff and students talking about their own challenges and offering advice and support regarding positive mental health, motivating yourself to engage digitally and studying from home to supplement face to face contact time.

We would welcome your comments directly at point of booking this session, what have your struggled with, what solutions have you found work? Live comments and conversation will be actively encouraged within the stream.

Ask The Expert: Economic solutions - Tackling youth unemployment in a post-Covid world | Wednesday 27 January, 5pm

The coronavirus pandemic is now having a particularly deep impact on the prospects for young workers. In this session we will explore the ways that government and society can support young people in a post-Covid world in order that we avoid a 'lost generation'.
