The school is uniquely placed to support the experience of International Students, based on the experience and background of its staff.
We support our international students from initial enquiry to arrival at our University and beyond
Our international students here in the Faculty come from all over the world - over 120 countries in fact. From India, China and Nigeria to Greece, Canada and Spain to name but a few.
Academic and support staff also have diverse backgrounds and will all help you settle in to your new life here in Derby.
We have a dedicated support team within our Faculty who can answer any questions you may have about studying at Derby and will help you to settle in and adjust to life as an international student when you arrive.
We also have a great International Student Centre who will pick you up from the airport and take you to your accommodation, so you'll be supported from the time you enquire to when you join our international community here.
Our International Student Community
