Welcome to joint honours - information for international students
Welcome to the joint honours scheme at the University of Derby. Thank you for choosing to study with us and we hope that your time at our university will be enjoyable and rewarding. This page will give you some useful information so you know what to expect during your time here.
We very much value the contributions that students from different parts of the world make to the life of the University. At the same time, we want to provide you with a supportive and flexible programme which allows you to get the most out of your time here.
We are looking forward to meeting you individually, but we do know that coming to a new university in a foreign country can be daunting. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to understand what you can expect during your Induction and Enrolment and where you can get help if you need it. We hope that these web pages, along with the letter you'll receive from us, will give you all the information you need.
Your subjects are taught at the Derby Campus and you will be invited to enrol at Kedleston Road. During the Induction and Enrolment period we'll also have a Joint Honours Scheme stand in the Atrium with staff who'll be able to help you if you're not sure what you need to do.

We offer a free ‘Meet and Greet’ service for international students arriving in September on these two dates:
