Fees and finance information

We appreciate that a University degree is a significant investment and therefore commit to being open and transparent as to what is included within your course fee. At the University of Derby we include as much as we possibly can in the fee:

  • All mandatory study trips.
  • Initial DBS checks for all relevant courses.
  • Certain courses include within the fee additional ‘extras’ relevant to that course. Examples may include uniforms, specialist kit / equipment, books, and print credits. Such instances will be highlighted on the relevant course information page.
  • There will inevitably be additional costs you incur wherever you choose to study, in order to maximise your learning experience. These will vary by course but might include, for example, non-mandatory study trips, additional kit / equipment and travel expenses for work placements. The course leader (listed on the relevant course information page) will be able to provide more information as required. 
  • All our courses benefit from access to core textbooks through our library, a modern learning environment, and academics recognised as being in the Top 10 nationally by the Times Good University Guide for teaching quality.
