Postgraduate Courses

Students have opportunities to study or work abroad as part of their programme with Go Places Go Further. Studying or working abroad is a fantastic opportunity to see more of the world, become a global citizen, and gain a new perspective on your subject, whilst gaining invaluable transferable skills and experience. You will meet new people from the host country and other countries, and future employers will be impressed when they review your CV.

We offer a diverse and distinctive range of art and design programmes at the University of Derby. We have a longstanding reputation for excellence in all our Arts subjects at a Postgraduate level and a proud history of innovation.

You’ll benefit from the expertise of our staff, who are professional designers, artists, and visual communicators. They work professionally, on commissioned research, and have been rated as researchers of national and international significance.

For courses starting on or after 1 August 2016, you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan of up to £10,000 to help with tuition fees and living costs for a Masters degree (full-time, part-time or online) for all taught and research subject areas. Further details about the new Postgraduate Loan Scheme and Career Developement Loans.
