De Montfort University Kazakhstan (DMUK) has a dedicated student support team to help deal with any issues you may have before, during and after your studies. Whether it’s finding accommodation and settling in, to arranging academic support – the support team can help point you in the right direction.
At DMUK, we are dedicated to creating an environment that focuses on students' health and wellbeing to help them to live a healthy, happy, and productive life. That includes providing resources that support their development and studies, helping them to succeed and to achieve their full potential both inside and outside of the classroom.

Personal Tutor Scheme
All DMUK, IYZ, Undergraduate and Postgraduate students have a designated personal tutor throughout their programme. From the moment they join the university, students are encouraged to build a relationship with their personal tutor who will support and guide them in their journey to fulfil their academic potential and to achieve their academic goals.
Health and Well-being
The Health and Well-being team offers counselling to give students the opportunity to talk in confidence with someone who is impartial and separate from work, social and family life. The team also offers a fantastic range of #HealthyDMUK masterclasses, including yoga, mindfulness and many more. These masterclasses are an opportunity to develop life skills such as managing pressure effectively and building self-confidence.
