Derby has a lot to offer to the students in terms of its location. When students feel they deserve a break from their studies, they will never be at loss for something to do in Derby. Historic landmarks, cutting-edge entertainment venues, cultural attractions and open green spaces – all come together in this spirited city.

In the heart of the UK, the University of Derby is easy to reach by road, rail and air. Its main campuses are based in the vibrant city of Derby and the Peak District spa town of Buxton. They are friendly, culturally diverse and safe places, with high standards of living and prices much cheaper than in bigger cities. Offering a great social life when students want it, and a relaxed, calm atmosphere when they need to concentrate, they are the ideal setting to enjoy the university experience to the full.

Sponsored by the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, I came to The University of Derby to study BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance. Through hard work and excellent resources at Derby, I managed to achieve a First Class Honours degree. I would like to take this opportunity to say how very qualified the lecturers are at the University of Derby. In particular I want to mention Hilary Coyle, she is aware that it is difficult for international students to get a First and I really appreciate all her help, support and motivation. Through sharing her own personal experiences Hilary has shown me that nothing is impossible. show less

I came from Lithuania along with my friend Ugne to study University of Derby’s BA (Hons) Animation course, which I successfully completed this summer (2013). We have been very active during the course, undertaking commercial animation and illustration contracts, as well as setting up own business. Shortly before completing the degrees we were approached by the University to create an animated TV commercial to spearhead the current student recruitment campaign, entitled ‘Are You Ready?’ This has been a very important project for us and for the company. This will be our first nationally broadcast TV commercial. The University has shown real faith in us show less
