Further support with time management

There is a lot of support within DMU to help you to build a structure and prioritise your learning.

Writing groups

We have a range of writing groups for students and staff where you can go along and work on your writing with other students. Going along to writing groups can help you build a good working routine for yourself and be more productive with your writing.

The 500 Word Club – for all DMU students. This weekly group is focused on developing good writing habits, including the use of learning technologies in the writing process.

The Postgraduate Group Online – for DMU research students, taught postgraduates, and staff who teach on PGT courses. This monthly group aims to provide a cross-disciplinary forum for the sharing of ideas and practices that will help the next generation of scholars to produce the best work they can.

The Writing Group for Research Students – for DMU’s Postgraduate Research Students. This community meets monthly and aims to provide mutual support for those working on researching and writing their thesis.

The Writing Circle – for DMU research students and staff. This group convenes fortnightly and provides a space for DMU staff and researchers to write alongside one another and share experiences and practices


Mentoring can help students with a number of challenges that they may face when they are at university. We have different mentoring schemes available. For more information please see the Mentoring for All website.
