Putting theory into practice

Having received expert teaching in your subject area, our diverse partnerships with organisations and universities in the UK and overseas, give you the perfect opportunity to put theory into practice and develop industry experience through a wide range of integrated and sandwich placements, voluntary opportunities and industry projects.

From our unique international experience programme, #DMUglobal, to studying at a partner European university with Erasmus+, or helping the local community through our square mile project, there are plenty of opportunities to widen your university experience and boost your employability while studying at DMU.

In fact, as part of DMU's dedication to providing an unrivalled student experience and excellent employability, #DMUglobal is set to become the most comprehensive international experience programme available at any UK university, with 11,000 students set to take part in the programme by 2020.

Previous students to have benefitted from the initiative have had the opportunity to put nursing and social work theory into practice in The Gambia, the chance to learn about the latest findings in the field of cancer stem cells in Hiedelberg, Germany, compare national education systems in Japan, and more.
