International guide

As an international student you will have lots of questions about what it’s like to study and live in Derby. We have produced an International Guide to give you lots of information about why you should choose Derby for your undergraduate and postgraduate course.

You can read your digital version here via Issuu or download our International Guide (PDF) (3MB). You can also download a text only International Guide - accessible word version (0.8MB).

We’ve included information about where Derby is in the UK; how to get here; what are the fees and what funding is available; our accommodation; what support we offer; and quotes from real international students already studying here. You can also contact us with any further questions you have.
