DMU Square Mile:
Working on the innovative projects that DMU Square Mile offers our students a unique opportunity to put the knowledge they learn on their degree course into practice, and strengthen their CV while honing the skills employers look for.
Student Ambassadors help to promote DMU by talking to prospective students, parents, teachers and careers advisers to share their experiences about the university. It’s a very rewarding role and you even get paid!
The Frontrunners scheme offers you the opportunity to apply for paid internships working on real tasks, with current DMU employees.
