Our international strategy is focused on developing mutually beneficial collaborations and working closely with educational institutions and businesses around the world.

Derby has attracted £4 billion of investment over the past 10 years. We recognise the part we play in providing businesses with the skilled workers, academic expertise and technological resources they need to thrive, as well as the valuable economic contribution we make to the UK.

Professor Kathryn Mitchell, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, introduces the University of Derby's Annual Review 2017/18.

Following an overseas visit to partners - old, new and prospective - in China and Hong Kong, Professor Keith McLay writes about shared values and the importance of education as a universal language.

Research is a fundamental part of our identity as an academic institution and the work we do has a real impact.
