Life
at Derby

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.

Explore all Derby has to offer

Life at university is not just about the course, it's a chance for you to get involved in extracurricular activities, from sports clubs and societies to volunteering and discovering the world beyond the campus.

Take a look at what Derby has to offer and if you like what you see, why not book your place at an Open Day. It will give you the chance to explore our campus, talk to our expert academics about your course and chat with our current students.
