University of Derby

The University of Derby is committed to providing a ‘best in class’ learning experience for its students with flexible pedagogies designed to meet different learner needs. We develop curricula that are research-informed and employer-led to enable our students to fulfil their potential and prepare them for the opportunities available to them, regardless of background and previous educational experience.

We are widely known for our outstanding record in student success, having been recognised as one of only 60 Higher Education Providers awarded the highest ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s recently introduced Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

We expose our students to new knowledge, and require them to engage with cultural and societal challenges, using our academic expertise to make the links between theoretical business, enterprise frameworks and the practicalities of the real business world through our extensive links with the business community. This integrated approach to our research and teaching activities provides the mutual aims of the discovery of new knowledge, new disciplinary and inter-disciplinary understanding across the whole university family.
