We appreciate that a University degree is a significant investment and therefore commit to being open and transparent as to what is included within your course fee. At the University of Derby we include as much as we possibly can in the fee:

  • All mandatory study trips.
  • Initial DBS checks for all relevant courses.
  • Certain courses include within the fee additional ‘extras’ relevant to that course. Examples may include uniforms, specialist kit / equipment, books, and print credits. For more information on this please speak to the course programme leader.
  • There will inevitably be additional costs you incur wherever you choose to study, in order to maximise your learning experience. These will vary by course but might include, for example, non-mandatory study trips, additional kit / equipment and travel expenses for work placements. The course leader (listed on the relevant course information page) will be able to provide more information as required. 
  • All our courses benefit from access to core textbooks through our library, a modern learning environment, and academics recognised as being in the Top 20 nationally for teaching quality by the the Times and Sunday Time Good University Guide 2017.

 You can find out more about fees relevant to you on the following pages:

Our tuition fees cover the cost of delivering your course and are payable annually. For some courses  there may be additional costs incurred during your studies.
