What our students say

Natalie Kerslake, MA Education Natalie, a local teaching assistant, talks about the valued support she has received from her lecturers and how part time study has enriched her professional practice in school.

Peter Tunnicliffe - Doctor of Education

"At the University of Derby, the Doctor of Education programme is flexible and allows you to work at your own pace, which is important especially as you have a full time job as well. The staff are encouraging and give good support and guidance. They make it easy to approach theory and receive good feedback at all stages, especially through the research element."

Natasha Young - MA Education

Natasha Young

"I have really noticed the confidence that I’ve gained through the brilliant support of the team and staff, who are really responsive to any enquiries that I have. I’ve relished in being able to write at Masters level, which I picked up in the first term of study. My rate of interviews went through the roof after commencing the MA Education course, and I believe it really helped me get my Senior Management role."

Lisa Snell - MA Education

"I am currently undertaking the MA Education on the Early Years pathway which is still engaging me with even more knowledge and theory, more related to research of a particular topic or project. It has given me even more aspirations with the desire to reflect and improve at the forefront of my practice."
