Simon Bradbury, DMU’s Pro Vice-Chancellor International, said the move will give DMU Dubai students not only better facilities but greater employability opportunities. 

He said: “This is a significant move for us and will only further establish the commitment we’ve made in Dubai since moving here. 

“This new campus offers students an inspiring building in which to learn, a very high standard of teaching facilities and technology and a well-connected central location. 

“Being in Internet City gives us the ability to form new partnerships with some of the world’s biggest companies, offering students the chance to gain invaluable experience in the careers they choose. 

“But the campus is also designed as a supportive environment in which students can learn and spend time. We have taken great care to make sure that with things, like classrooms, the employability hub, workshops and library ensures that the experience of studying with us supports and empowers them to begin the career they want.”

Since it opened in 2021, DMU Dubai has welcomed nearly 1,200 students, offering a range of courses at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level. Subjects include business, law, fashion, cyber security and psychology and are all taught by highly-skilled lecturers. 

As part of the DMU family, DMU Dubai students are taught under the university’s innovative block teaching model, which sees modules taught one at a time, rather than simultaneously. 

This allows students to focus more fully on each area, concluding it with an assessment, before moving on to the next, providing faster, more comprehensive feedback at each point. 

The new campus is set to open in September 2024.
