University of Derby Online Home Page

Our new website is designed to provide those keen to embark on distance learning with easy access to the information they need before making their choice.

Julie Stone, Head of University of Derby Online.

The University of Derby Online (UDOL) team has started the New Year in style, by launching a new and improved website designed to appeal to the University's growing world-wide online student audience and provide easier access to online course information.

Online courses give students control over where and when they study, and are popular with busy professionals or parents who need to fit their education around work or family life. The University's international online students, who currently come from over 89 countries, can also gain a highly regarded UK degree without having to leave their own country.

Designed by Fluid Ideas, a Darley Abbey based creative and marketing design agency set up by University of Derby graduate Phil Harvey, the new website acts as a central hub for students interested in distance learning. It features information relating solely to online study including the range of courses available, finance, studying, open days and support.

Clearly displayed links enable prospective students to apply for a course, request further information and contact the UDOL team easily.

Julie Stone, Head of University of Derby Online, said: "Our new website is designed to provide those keen to embark on distance learning with easy access to the information they need before making their choice.

"We appreciate that many of our prospective online students have busy lives to juggle, so we wanted to make the process of navigating around the website and requesting information as streamlined as possible. The team has done a fantastic job and the feedback we've had so far on our new-look website has been extremely positive."

In additional to general course information, undergraduate and postgraduate case studies and videos are hosted on the website, giving those considering distance learning a genuine insight into the benefits.
