How the University opened doors for me

Case studies

At the University of Derby, we have a strong record in tackling barriers to access and success. By removing these barriers, we are improving the life chances of people across our region - and beyond - and growing our reputation as a leading institution for social mobility.

Explore the sections below as some students, graduates, and teachers, explain how engaging with the University through outreach and widening access activities has positively affected them, and the young people they work with.
