The University of Derby Online Learning (UDOL) is the thriving distance learning division of the University of Derby.

Since 2001, the University of Derby has offered online distance learning to students who required more flexible study options.  As demand for these popular online distance learning courses increased, Derby learned to tailor course content specifically for online delivery and in 2011, UDOL was launched.

UDOL is now one of the UK’s leading providers of online learning. Its aim is to inspire people to achieve more and realise their academic ambitions.

It is dedicated to providing online learning degree courses, professional courses and CPD opportunities to people around the world.  Its courses are studied entirely online, and study materials are available at any time via computer or mobile devices, allowing learners to study at a time and place that suits them, fitting studies around family and working life.

UDOL’s students learn in a structured and supported environment, with academic advice and tuition from experienced online academic tutors and pastoral support from a dedicated online learner advisor. Many of UDOL’s programmes are accredited by professional bodies meaning they meet industry standards/ expectations.  

By combining the best quality university teaching and the latest online delivery techniques, UDOL’s learners can expect their studies to be stimulating, rich and rewarding. In addition, the support and guidance service ensures learners are able to get the very best out of their studies, no matter their location or situation.  Through debates and collaboration, students from around the world can interact, share their knowledge and skills, thereby enhancing the overall learning experience.

Proud to be an award-winning team, UDOL has experienced significant success and its future plans are ambitious as it continues to expand and grow to meet the rising demand for quality online degree courses.
