I have accepted my offer

We're delighted that you've accepted your offer to study at the University of Derby - here's what happens next.


You should now start researching your accommodation options.

If you are joining us in September 2016, applications for accommodation are now open

We have eight University halls of residence you can choose from and we guarantee you a place in halls if you apply by 31 July 2016. 

Find out more about the benefits of living in halls.

We also have a range of University-approved private accommodation if you would prefer this option. Find out more on Studentpad.

Finance and fees

Before you come to Derby, it is important to find out about the cost of studying and living here, as well as the financial help available.

If you are a UK student starting your first degree, you can apply for loans to cover tuition fees and living costs. For more information, please visit fees and finance.

Preparing to go to University

You can read more about academic preparation, making friends before you get here and top tips on our Preparing to go to University pages.


If your offer is conditional on gaining specific grades in your forthcoming exams, UCAS will notify us of your results.

Once we receive your results, we will aim to make a decision as quickly as possible. If you meet the terms of your offer, your place will be confirmed automatically and UCAS track will be updated within a few days.

If you do not gain the grades you were expecting, try not to worry. We may still be able to offer you a place on your chosen course. Check UCAS track to see if you have been accepted. However, if you have been unsuccessful in gaining a place on the course you have applied for, we would still recommend contacting us as we may be able to offer an alternative course.  

Next steps for international students

We have lots of advice on our international pages about applying for a student visa, the cost of living here in the UK and student life at Derby.
