Will my certificate state that I studied online?

No. Like any other certificate issued by University of Derby, your award certificate will simply state the name of the course that you studied – e.g. BSc (Hons) Psychology. There is no reference to the mode of study on your certificate, it is only referred to on the transcript.

Is an online degree of the same quality as a full time degree?

Yes, our online courses are of the same rigorous quality as our on-campus courses. Many of our courses are also accredited by professional bodies, including the Chartered Management Institute, Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and the Institute of Hospitality.
