We continue to invest heavily in the University of Derby estate, improving facilities for students and staff and providing state-of-the-art teaching and learning spaces.


With a growing reputation for teaching and research excellence, a strong student base and superb industry connections, there is no better time to be involved with the University of Derby.

For many of our students, we're much more than a place to learn; we're a home from home. When our alumni leave Derby, we want to continue to support them and help them stay connected with the University and each other.

We take our civic role seriously and are committed to working closely with community groups and the public to help create opportunities and enhance lives.

The University of Derby remains an increasingly popular choice for students for the education, experience and opportunities we offer.
