We know it can be hard to balance a student budget with eating well. And that’s before you think about the tonne of deadlines you’ve got coming up!

That’s why we’ve launching our Yummy Sundays series of videos to provide cheap and easy recipe ideas for students at DMU, featuring some of the favourite dishes from members of our Officer Team and beyond.

The Yummy Sundays campaign has been masterminded by Mollie Footitt, DP Education at DSU.
