At the University of Derby we understand you may be interested in beginning your course at different times of the year. That’s why we offer courses that start in in September, January and April for online courses, which means you can start your studies at a time that suits you.
This gives you the flexibility to study courses that can be full-time, online, or at one of our overseas partnership universities. These options allow you to tailor your course to your needs.
The University of Derby has two campuses: Derby and Buxton. Each campus has nearby halls of residence within walking distance of the city. Buxton is on the edge of the Peak District which is 30 miles north of Derby city.
Derby is a thriving city with a 7.5% rise in employment rates. The annual earnings are nearly £4,000 higher than the national average. Derby has rail links to major cities such as London, and Birmingham. Derby was voted as the second safest city to study in by a study of over 1 million international students from the UK.
Buxton is a small town found in the heart of the Peak District with beautiful views of the countryside. You can take part in outdoor activities including walking, canoeing, hiking and swimming.

Learning with a personal touch – 80% of our classes have less than 30 students which means you will have smaller class sizes and have access to your personal tutor whenever you need them.
