Thinking of applying to university?

If you’re considering going to university, doing early research is still more important than ever. You might be entering your final year of sixth form or college, be a mature learner looking to return to education, or you may have deferred your entry to start university in 2021 – whatever the reason, it can be confusing to know where and how to start your university application. To support you in this process, 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 to aid your decision-making.

With UCAS now open for 2021 applications, you have the opportunity to study a subject you’re passionate about, enhance your employability, gain your independence, enjoy new experiences and make life-long friends - there are so many experiences that going to university can give you! All at the same time as securing a degree and the skills and knowledge you need to give you a head start in your career. 

We know early research is important in helping you find the right university for you, so we want to give you as many digital opportunities as possible to discuss your university options - speak to our advisers at a UCAS virtual exhibition, or book onto one of our many live streams throughout the year.

One of the best ways to experience DMU for yourself is to join us at an Open Day. Book onto a Digital Open Day on Saturday 5 December or Saturday 16 January where you can enjoy an interactive experience from the comfort of home, with live streams, course talks and interactive Q&As, you can hear first-hand from tutors and current students and also virtually tour our campus. You’ll get all of this exclusive content and more, only at our Digital Open Day!
