“At the University of Derby we have always taken great pride in our approach to teaching and learning.

What we teach and the way we teach it is designed to ensure all our students benefit from academic challenge, outstanding facilities and relevant work experience opportunities which ensure upon graduating they are best placed to realise their goals and aspirations.

We are ambitious. Not only in terms of what we want to achieve as a University, but what we want our graduates of the future to achieve be it locally, nationally or globally.

To this end, our pursuit of excellence in student experience, with academic rigour at its heart, will never cease. Wherever the bar is set, our aim will be to take it higher. This commitment to our students is evidenced throughout our Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) submission.”
