At DMU, it’s our goal to help every student reach their goal, so we have introduced a new course structure, known as Education 2030. The majority of you enrolling in September 2023 will learn in a focused ‘block’ teaching format, where you study one subject at a time instead of several at once. This has already proven popular with our first cohort of undergraduate students, with *93 per cent claiming they enjoyed studying one module at a time and 90 per cent of new students feeling they made the right choice in choosing DMU.
Through Education 2030, not only will you have more time to engage with your learning, but you will also receive faster feedback through more regular assessment and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life – meaning your new home at DMU is a supportive and nurturing learning community.
Of course, one size doesn’t fit all, and there will be variations based on the professional requirements of your course. Rest assured you will still benefit from the same excellent experience, supportive environment, and friendships which last well beyond your time on campus – making university your new beginning.

Block delivery is a new and convenient way to study as a part-time student that you can fit around your life needs.
