Focused on our Students

The University is a Top 50 UK university*, made up of three campuses. Our Derby campus sits just outside Derby city centre, the UK’s most central city and a thriving place renowned for technology and innovation. Our Buxton Campus is situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, the award-winning University campus provides students with unrivalled access to tutorial expertise and world class facilities. Our Chesterfield campus is set in a charming town and is home to our nationally recognised Adult Nursing degrees and Mentoring in Practice modules.

Derby is No.1 for graduate employment in the East Midlands, our culture of real world learning means we work with employers to make sure you’re offered the best possible start to your career, that’s why 96.9% of our graduates are in employment or further study six months after completing their degree*.

Focused on our People

Derby is a genuinely friendly and supportive place, and it’s our employees who make it like that. Our vision is based on the simple belief that, if we can attract and retain the right people – those that believe in our core values – then we (and they) will succeed.

We are dedicated to learning and we are committed to providing excellent career and personal development opportunities.
