Why choose the University of Derby

The University of Derby is a modern, innovative education provider that achieved its university status in 1992. Teaching at the Derby site dates back to 1851 when it was a Diocesan Institution for Training, which gives them over 160 years of expertise in education.

They pride themselves on offering: A high-quality education to individuals and businesses, which is relevant to today’s world and ensures graduates are well equipped to lead successful careers; A more personal experience – they have a greater staff to student ratio than many other UK universities, so they can spend more time supporting students; Research that directly informs their teaching or provides solutions for businesses; Experiential learning, where students put into practice everything they learn – often in excellent real-world facilities.

As a university, they receive a great deal of support from the community, and so they're always looking for ways to 'give back' to help make the city a better place for everyone.
