Overcome career barriers

Link to LinkedIn

LinkedIn Learning courses are available online free of charge to all DMU students and staff.  Use the courses to revise subjects of interest or learn new vocational skills such as staff management or project planning.

SCONUL Access Scheme

The SCONUL Access scheme enables staff and students from a university to access the libraries at other universities, closer to their homes.  This has real advantages for students studying at a distance.  If you are studying on a distance learning, apprenticeship, or part time course, you will usually be able to borrow items from other universities' libraries too.

See which universities are members of the scheme from the SCONUL scheme guide.
