Accredited programmes available to study part-time in September and January
A range of foundation degrees, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are available that can have a direct benefit to your company through projects which can be applied to real situations.
A more highly skilled workforce
Many local businesses are encouraging their staff to study with the University of Derby through its range of part-time day release programmes, and are benefitting directly from employees boasting an extra level of ability, skills and knowledge.
You can study while you work, as all our courses have a blend of lectures and seminars, distance learning and block study. Most courses are taught one day per semester, by day release.
Saving valuable time
A foundation degree plus top-up to a full BEng (Hons) can be studied in as little as 3 ½ years, while full BEng (Hons) degrees can be studied over 5 years.
Government loans to cover tuition fees are now available for undergraduate part-time students. It’s also cheaper to study an undergraduate course part-time.
