Study Centre Plus

This model retains all the attributes of the Study Centre, with the Partner attracting the additional responsibility for providing academic guidance and support to students.  The academic guidance and support will be undertaken via the University’s online learning platform.  Some face-to-face academic support as part of the synchronous learning activity may take place at key stages but it is not compulsory for the student to attend or take advantage of these offers..  This model is suited to Partners with demonstrable experience of supporting students at HE level of study.

Study Centre

The Partner will act as a local presence for the University in the promotion, marketing and recruitment of students to the University; they will encourage students to remain engaged throughout their studies, which will lead to improved retention rates. A partner may be approved to offer study skills support, pastoral support and English language support.

The University retains full responsibility for all online programmes, including the provision of all academic guidance and support (teaching).


Agent Agreement

The University appoints representatives in many countries throughout the world to act as non-exclusive agents, to promote and recruit students to the University from specified geographical areas, subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

Articulation Agreement

An Articulation Agreement is a formal agreement whereby the University grants entry with advanced standing to students completing a named programme of study undertaken in a partner organisation.

Academic mapping will be undertaken by the University to establish the adequacy of the proposed progression route.

Online Learners Visit Derby To Connect At Residential Event

Online Learners Visit Derby To Connect At Residential Event

Over 50 students who study from their homes around the UK with the University of Derby Online Learning visited the University’s Kedleston Road site to meet fellow students and academics from their course for the very first time.

The cohort of students attended the Environmental Health MSc residential week (May 13 – 17) to complete a range of group based projects as part of their masters degree. While in Derby the online learners had an invaluable opportunity to network with other students and apply the theory they had learned to their area of professional practice.

Online Students Travel Thousands of Miles To Derby

Students studying through the University of Derby Online swapped virtual for real life learning last week when they attended ‘Psychology in Practice’, a Derby based residential week organised by the University.
