Pay as you study

This payment plan allows you to spread the cost of your course fees for each trimester over four monthly installments.

Example A: Studying one module per trimester (eg: module price £620)

Is an online degree worth the same as an on-campus degree?

Our online courses are also subject to the same intense validation process which scrutinises all proposed courses, to ensure they match up to the high standard of courses that we offer at the University of Derby. Our validation processes are in place to ensure that our courses have the same level of academic rigour as any course you would study across the UK.

Pay in September and save

Pay for all of the modules you are studying in an academic year and you'll receive a 5% discount.

What support do I receive throughout my online studies?

You will always have a point of contact to support you with both academic and non-academic issues.

From enquiry to enrolment, you will have a dedicated admissions advisor to answer any queries you may have about your course choices or the application process.

From enrolment to graduation, the online learning advisor team can help you with any non-academic issues or queries that you may have.

Discount if you pay in full

We review our course fees and apply an appropriate price increase at the beginning of each academic year. If you will be studying for more than one year, you can avoid these annual increases by paying for your entire course when you enrol. You'll also benefit from a 5% discount.

How does online learning work?

Online learning involves a combination of tutor discussions, reading, research, online activities and critical thinking and reflection.

We have developed our online courses to be social and collaborative, with plenty of opportunities to network and connect. Module tutors will hold virtual classrooms and seminars for live discussion and open debate, and these will be recorded for you to revisit at a later date. We also encourage you to engage with fellow students through discussion boards, forums, wikis and blogs so you never feel like you’re studying in isolation.
