Part-time study

For flexible, part-time study make Derby your classroom

Our flexible part-time courses are a great way of fitting study around your other commitments. You can broaden your skills and knowledge in a flexible way, without it affecting your lifestyle.  If you are working and would like to gain a professional qualification to help further your career, part-time study is a great option. 

Many of our foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and professional courses can be studied part-time either during the day or in the evening.

You can also study online with the University of Derby Online Learning (UDOL). Many of the online degree courses are accredited by a professional body, so you can be sure that the course content is relevant and your qualification will be recognised by your industry.
