University of Derby Vice-Chancellor Professor John Coyne said today that he was confident the new measures already in place at the University of Derby would meet the challenge of the Government's shake up of Higher Education set out in a White Paper today.

Professor Coyne said: "The University of Derby will be charging an average of less than £7,500 a year from 2012. This puts it firmly in the category identified by Government for growth.

"On average 15 per cent of students come to this University after achieving grades of AAB at A level, the equivalent of 340 UCAS points.

"We expect to remain attractive to them as they choose high quality courses that meet their specific needs. We remain firmly on course to meet the changes coming our way.

"We note the challenge of greater competition, including from private providers, but we are confident that the University of Derby proposition and the quality of support students can expect from us will continue to be attractive and will underpin our future success."
