Graduate Champions

The university is proud to provide an innovative scheme called DMU Graduate Champions.

DMU Graduate Champions offers recent graduates the chance to take up a 6 week, graduate-level, paid internship with a UK business to enhance their CV and help them stand out from the crowd in a furiously competitive jobs market.

Each graduate will be contracted and paid by DMU to work 18.5 hours a week for 6 weeks, and the university will pay the Living Wage which currently stands at £7.85 an hour.
