Students' rights and responsibilities: our shared expectations

At DMU we aim to promote a culture where everyone is treated with respect. We all need to acknowledge and celebrate our successes and take responsibility for, and learn from, our mistakes. If we embrace these values, all members of our community will have the opportunity to develop as individuals and to benefit from a positive university experience.

To help us foster this community spirit and co-operative approach, DMU has a number of formal statements which set out what you can expect from the university, and what expectations are placed on you.
