Why higher education?

There are many reasons to enter higher education and these can vary from:

Progressing a chosen career path  |  Being passionate about a subject  |  Enjoying the independence which studying at university brings

Whatever the reason, it’s vital prospective students research their options thoroughly to ensure an informed decision is made.

Employers now look at students’ skills – such as capacity to learn, organisational expertise, interpersonal skills, independence, self-motivation and communication abilities – as well as qualifications.

DMU has more than 400 courses that can help students develop these skills as well as career-specific subject knowledge, giving them a greater choice, greater job flexibility and the opportunity to earn a higher salary.
