Research at DMU 

At DMU, we have an ambitious Research Strategy which aims to make research central to our mission as a university. As a university committed to the public good, we have a track record of research that impacts society and makes a real difference to people’s lives through improvements to health and well-being, infrastructure, creativity, economic growth, business and civil society. 

Our commitment to research is integral to our aim to develop our students as critical thinkers. This was recognised in the assessment that accompanied the university’s award of TEF Gold in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework. It was recognised that our research “fed into the curriculum through a focus on application to real-world settings and research-led work placements”.

As the United Nations’ (UN) designated Global Hub for Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 – the only UK university to be designated as such – we have a commitment to address the UN SDGs in our research, teaching and enterprise activity.
