Update Your Details

Don’t forget to update your details!

We may still need to contact you about your results or graduation. If you no longer have access to your university email address, or decide to check it less frequently, it is vital that we have an alternative email address so we can contact you. We have found that many students have still got their old college email address or those of their agent recorded on our system.


Please take a few moments to check your personal details on ‘My DMU’ and update your contact details.


Please also check your address as we may need to send your certificate and it would be unfortunate if it was sent to the wrong place.
