Expert teaching at the University of Derby
At Derby we want you to be inspired by our teaching staff. With a wealth of industry experience, many of our lecturers still work part-time in their field so you know their skills are up to date and reflect latest developments in their area.
You'll get plenty of time with them too. Small class sizes and one-to-one time with your lecturers and personal tutors mean you’ll be supported every step of the way. Over 85% of our classes have fewer than 30 students.
Many of our teaching staff are also actively involved in ground-breaking research. With 13 research groups across a range of disciplines, three quarters of our research submitted to the latest national Research Excellence Framework was judged to be at least internationally significant, with some rated as world-leading. In many subjects you’ll have the chance to get involved with this research, supporting our academics as they shape our understanding and your learning.
