Module Selection

Module selection should be discussed with an appropriate academic each year in order to make the right choice for your individual study.

New students: An opportunity for discussion will arise as part of your course induction when you arrive on campus. 

Returning students: If you have an active refer or defer against a module studied in a previous academic year, you will not need to re-enrol on to the module(s).

If you are unsure of your module choices, please contact your academic for guidance.

Online Enrolment

You should endeavour to complete online enrolment before arriving on campus, however if you're unable to do so, there will be an enrolment session scheduled into your course induction.


Once you have completed the online process you must confirm your enrolment with a member of the enrolment team on campus*.

If you are being sponsored by a company you will need to bring a sponsor letter confirming that they are willing to support you or send it to

If you are self-funding you will be required to pay 25% of the cost of your autumn / through modules before you can be confirmed. For further information on the payment terms, please see our guide for payments and queries.

There are a number of ways to pay. Call our dedicated payment line on +44 (0)1332 611841, see our cashier on campus or pay securely online.

If you don't complete enrolment you could be withdrawn from the University, so please ensure you contact us if you're experiencing any problems.

After we've confirmed your enrolment you'll receive a completion email. This is your proof of registration at Derby, so keep it safe.

*If you're a returning student or distance learning student you won't need to come in. We'll confirm your enrolment as soon as you've enrolled online and made any necessary payments.
