Why our students love the University of Derby

Education with a personal touch

Our lecturers and tutors are always available to support their students. For example Partycja one of our Psychology students feels that “Lecturers are very helpful; the University tries to help student’s as much as possible with studies, exams and even with health and financial issues”

Employment opportunities

Many students enjoy working while studying such as one of Radek one of our BA Accounting and Marketing students who was pleased that “Working was possible during his studies; many of my friends worked part time and could easily support themselves financially.”

Opportunities for students

Our courses provide students with expertise and the knowledge they need to pursue their career ambitions. For example BSc (Hons) Computer Games Programming student Jitesh recently raised £45,000 to fund a Japanese video game which teaches players how to speak Japanese.

Successful graduates

Our graduates value their experience at the University of Derby because employability is at the heart of everything we do. Which is why over 96% of our students enter employment or further study within six months of graduating.

Many of our graduates have found great success in their chosen careers. For example Graphic Design graduate Rob was part of the Oscar winning visual effects team for the hugely successful film Gravity.
