Thinking of applying to university?

If you’re looking to start university in 2022, applications are now open via UCAS. To help you along the way, we’ve put together this dedicated student toolkit with loads of great content, including live stream events, student vlogs, a breakdown of the application process, and information and advice on why you should apply to university.

What you learn in books is just the start. By going to university, you have the opportunity to explore a subject you’re passionate about, enhance your employability, gain independence, enjoy new experiences and find the people who will push you to achieve things you never thought you could. Our award-winning careers and employability service, DMU Works, means we're the UK's best university for helping students build their careers - so you can secure your degree as well as the skills and knowledge you need to get a head start in your career.

For advice from those who know DMU best – our current students – you can listen to our new Let's Talk University podcast, where they invite a range of guests to discuss university life, support services and personal experiences. Or, discover DMU for yourself by joining one of our Open Days on Saturday 4 December and Saturday 15 January.
