Whether you are progressing from undergraduate study, want to change or develop your career, or simply study the subject you love in more depth, we offer a wide range of courses and study methods including full-time, part-time and online learning.

University of Breaking New Ground
Our research has a strong foundation, with 74% of our research submitted to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) considered internationally significant.

To build on this, we are investing in a new generation of research centres that will enable us to address the challenges facing industry, business, the public sector and wider society. Research informs our teaching, encourages enterprise and supports businesses, local authorities and other bodies, while building our reputation, regionally, nationally and internationally.

You can embark on original research, leading to the award of a higher degree of either a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. Higher degrees from the University of Derby are awarded in recognition of a successful period of research training that normally culminates in the production of a thesis.

University of Future Leaders

Across our postgraduate courses, you will find lecturers who still practise in their chosen field and who are active and respected researchers.
