For many of our students, we’re much more than a place to learn; we’re a home from home. A place to make new friends, enjoy new experiences and grow as a person.

When you choose to apply here, you’re choosing much more than a course. You’re choosing to be part of our student community, you’re choosing Derbyshire as a place to live, and you’re choosing our campuses and facilities.

Explore this Life section to find out if University of Derby is right for you, then consider coming to an Open Day to really get a feel for the place.
