We recognise that paying for your course fees can be a significant outlay and it is important that you make the right decisions about financing your studies and for you to be aware of the funding options available to you.

To make your studies more affordable, we offer a choice of payment plans allowing you to spread the cost over monthly payments or to benefit from a discount should you pay upfront.

Student loans are now available for part-time students. You may be eligible for a Tuition Fee Loan or a Professional and Career Development Loan to help pay for your tuition fees.

There is funding and allowances available to students too. Depending on your circumstances you may be eligible for a Disabled Students’ Allowance or career specific funding such as ELC funding for the British Armed Forces.

You could also benefit from our discounts and savings. Our 10% alumni loyalty discount is available to University of Derby graduates and all students can take advantage of great savings and offers with well-known brands and retailers with the NUS Extra Student discount card.

Additionally, through our accreditations, some of our programmes include student membership with the professional body, a great way of accessing valuable membership benefits during your studies.

Information and details can be found in this section of the website. Alternatively please call us on +44 (0)1332 594000 or email onlineadmissions@derby.ac.uk where you can talk through the options with our friendly admissions advisors.
