Education 2030 – A new approach to teaching – September 2022 onwards:
We want to ensure you have the best learning experience possible and a supportive and nurturing learning community. That’s why DMU is introducing a new block model for delivering the majority of their courses, known as Education 2030. [This will apply for new students commencing September 2022 onwards] The same model will be delivered on the Bachelor in Management (Business Studies) at DCBS in Year 1 and Year 2 and continued at DMU in Year 3. This means a more simplified timetable where you will study two subjects and two certification modules concurrently in a block, instead of several at once. That means you can focus more closely on each subject and absorb the learning materials in more depth with assessment/s completed before moving onto the next block You will have more time to get to know the teaching team and course mates.
At DCBS the Course model will be as closely aligned as possible, with DMU’s Education 2030 delivery structure to ensure a smooth transition to DMU in Year 3 – its our goal to help every student reach their ambition and to ensure you have the best learning experience possible, and we are working hard to introduce the new course structure, known as Education 2030. Not only will you have more time to engage with your learning, 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 and enhanced exposure through internships and other industry linkages– meaning your new home at DCBS and DMU is a supportive and nurturing learning community.
