University of Derby

Most helpful review

The university is a great modern building and with amenities like Subway, Starbucks and Papa Jons - as well as the university’s own cafe Blends, the foodcourt, the shops and SU. There is everything you could possible need at university. The library has everything you could need and normally there are enough computers and space in there. The buses are mostly quite awful, either they turn up late or don’t turn up at all on many occasions - but sometimes they do surprise you and turn up on time which is great. Currently I’m studying the foundation access course, which could be improved, although I am glad to be at university, the teaching in some of my classes is as poor as the support system. Additionally there is a constant disregard for the enivornment and an absurd amount of paper is handed out daily, for which there is no need. Asides from the negatives, the university of Derby is a great place to be. I would definitely reccomend joining a society or sports club!

Was my favorite place for the past 3 weeks. Spent $100 each time. Went tonight. Horrible service! Sat for 10 minutes waiting for the waitress. Found the hostess and got drinks. Waited another 30 minutes for waitress and finally walked out. Paid the bill and left and went to Saddlesore where we were served in 10 minutes. Got a sorry from the manager at the derby room. Told him bad service means you will not make it as a business in norco. Lost my business.

I feel like it hooks people in as it looks modern but the Internet doesn’t work in most areas of the campus, the buses to and from uni are constantly over full and the uni itself doesn’t have enough space for people to sit and eat lunch/ socialise during breaks. Furthermore, the SU are shocking with organising events. Freshers was crap just like last year, the can’t get a decent name to perform and it’s the same plan every year. Societies are dwidiling too but if you want to go to a uni to stand around and eat a brownie from brownie man or an overpriced meal deal from keddies, go to Derby!

I am at it's Buxton Campus. Other than the campus being ideal for students who study Spa, Culinary, Hospitality and Events, the rest of the campus is shocking. We share it with load and irritating college kids, who quite frankly have no respect 85% of the time, but we literally have no facilities that the big Derby Campus has. We have no club open on a week night... we have like 5 socities, we lost our sports facilities, as well as our us shop, we have a library thats have extended it's opening hours till 10pm... 90% of the Derby students have never even heard of us - probably because we live over an hour away from the main campus with no good travel links. If you want to come to Uni, in a small town that is excellent for practical learning - but has NOTHING in it (oh apart from 10 charity shops, 25 pubs, a superdrug, 8 supermarkets and a New Look) then Buxton is 100% for you. you will be dissapointed if you are coming to Uni and you want the experiences that your friends are having!

Thank you for your feedback, we value and appreciate what our students have to say as student feedback is a vital part in shaping the student experience. Our Buxton Campus offers our students a hands on learning ecperience for our specialist courses taught there. Being located on the edge of the Peak District and in the Grade ii Devonshire Dome, Buxton offers our students a different experience to those studying in Derby city. How ever we work to ensure the student services offered are equal to what is available on our Derby Campus. Additionally, it's only an hour to travel to nearby Manchester and Derby.

I had no help all year, terrible support system, counseling is ridiculous and i was left several times, the drs are useless and things really need to change, at the university your not a person, your just a number and they were shocked when i wanted to leave after not caring about whether students were turning up and the CET department honestly could do with not leaving their students struggling, they aren't the friendliest of teams.

Generally I love the campus, it’s extremely modern and up to date. However, there’s many timetabling issues with rooms, and due to this timetables are given out late and rooms occasionally changed. Personally, my lectures are superb and I don’t have a single complaint. They’re a very dedicated History team. I find the union of student slacking as many are uneducated on their roles, the societies are still gaining momentum, and I do question if the careers department will ever stop spamming my emails. Overall, I love this uni, and I would highly recommend it if anyone’s looking for a homely feel.

I really enjoyed going to uni. The staff are usually very quick reply to emails. Communication throughout the uni is is usually great so you know about any events going to happen. Also there's plenty of places to get food and drink for a good price and a good quality. There's even a microwave on campus so you can bring in ready meals to eat if we still find it's too expensive, hot water is free of course. The staff are more caring than you could possibly imagine and there are support systems around to give you support plans for any problem. By going to this uni I really believe that I will achieve the best grade possible for me because any of my underlying problems will not be an issue or hinder my studies as the will offer me help whether it's academically or mentally.

We're glad to help anyone who may need extra care in their learning experience. Our Student Wellbeing team carefully triage all enquiries and create support plans where necessary for those with different conditions - we don't want to let any disabilities or mental health issues be a barrier to higher education. There's always a mental health practitioner on duty, who would see students in crisis.

I really enjoy studying at the University of Derby, mostly the facilities are great. It's great that there's an on-site GP surgery etc. The student wellbeing service could be improved slightly by adding in a duty/drop-in service for those whom are really desperate for help. The clubs and societies on offer are honestly great, there's lots available. I wish I had time to do more. Internet in the actual uni and in the accommodation isn't great, for example, we can only add 2 devices to the wifi when in halls.

The Universtiy of Derby offers a lot of help to students accademically and has good facilities (although some coyld be improved, such as a 24 hour libary and modernised student living) but fails largely when it comes to the social side of university life. There a few societies and those which exsist offer very few events and activities. The university would benifit from a greater student union with a more rounded outlook on student lifestyle and living.

We are glad to hear you have had a good experience at Derby University. We are always listening to our students and aim to improve the experience. The libary does extend its opening hours during key assesment times, but last year we also opened a 24-hour study space at the new Union of Students venue '67 Bridge Street'. This is located beside our student accomodation, which is more convenient and appealing late at night. We are also in the process of refurbishing more of our halls bringing them in line with the modern standards of our newwest halls, Cathedral Court and the forthcoming Agard Court. Union of Students societys do require dedication to maintain and keep offering fresh experiences for their members. You may benefit from creating ot suggesting your own society.

I study motorsport engineering. When you come on the open day it looks good with a full garage with a formula 4 car, a global light, a formula student car and a vauxhall vx220. Like i said, it LOOKS good. But the reality is that they cant keep the staff. The head of the garage recently left work at another university, leaving one person in charge with 1 apprentice to run any practices in the garage. Secondally, formula student. This year we had one meeting about formula student and then the whole thing went cold turkey. Not a peep. We did try to speak to someone about it, but the guy who was incharge of that had left also. So we set up a motorsports society - which gets no help form the motorsport facilities at all. If you do a foundation year, then it is even worse as you will see that tge foundation year goes into a lot more depth in terms of maths, engineering sciences and practicals. All in all, derby apears to be good, but there is still much to be desired.

So unorganised it’s unreal, lectures never hand back assingments on time. Exams are never handed back on the set date for no reason. Most staff are good lectures but poor time management especially with assignments and exams! The unorganisation of this course (Adult Nursing, Chesterfield Campus) is truely unacceptable and should not be accepted in such a professional degree.

I will not be recommending the university of Derby to anyone in the future. The standard of teaching, facilities for learning and professionalism was below par. Dates in which assignment grades were supposed to be handed back to students along with feedback were to always met. There was no explanation as to why this was the case. Being a final year student and with two modules including the disseration not being handed back on the propsed date is not acceptable espeically without no explanation as to why this is the case. In my final year I was required to do a module in my final year with another colleague however they did not contribute at all to the work which resulted in me doing all of the work. When the lecturer was addressed by me about the issues, they did not help me one bit and told me that it is the way it is, which ended up affecting my grade for the module overall. Explanations about assignements are poor and computing software and hardware is poor.

Uni is okay but the car parking facilities are dreadful! I have to park further away which costs more money and are left at “owners risk”. Also, it’s at a park that has been known for people being attacked, so doesn’t feel very safe when walking there alone, especially when it’s dark earlier in winter!

Thanks for getting intouch. With regards to parking, unfortunately our capacity is extremely limited, and therefore has to be prioritised for those with expectional requirements. With regards to parking at Markeaton Park, we do offer a bus serivce which runs via the park to our campus. You can park at Kedleston Road after 4:30pm for late night lectures to avoide walking back through the park. Further information can be found via our website.

We're sorry to hear this, and hope you will take the opportunity to share any further feedback to feedback@derby.ac.uk. Because of being situated in the grade II listed Devonshire Dome, our Buxton Campus offers a very diffrent experience to our Derby campus. But we belive the subjects based there benefit from being in a town noted for being a tourism destination. We've worked hard to ensure the same resources are available to all our students, including the career & Emploment service, and IT services. We will look into this furtherto make sure all our students have access to the best services. Would you be happy for us to contact you directly to update you on the actions taken?

Its a small campus compred to other unis, but i prefer that because i freak out when things are too crowded and big, the staff give loads of 1:1 help, and the halls aren’t too bad (especially the newer ones, be wary of older/cheeper halls). Not much of a nightlife in derby, students make the most of whats there, but otherwise its a good uni and in a nice city that also isnt too big to be getting lost in

Thanks for your feedback. We're always keen to find out what our students think. We aim to keep our accomodation in the best condition and have recenlty invested in two new buildings to house our students in. We recently opened Cathedral Court in September 2016, and are looking forward to our newest accomodation Agard Court opening this September. While we have also invested in new buildings, we are also busy refurbishing our older accomodation too. Nunnery Court has recently been refurbished and this summer we see St Christopher's Court undergoing a refurb.

The facilities on my campus are limited and no students stay on campus for longer than they have to. I joined a society in first year but we had two meetings to discuss what would happen and that was it. I actually couldn't tell you anything about the students Union or much about the careers service. I had a meeting with them once but they just told me to look online. Had trouble in the past with the WiFi not working and some areas of the building disconnect you from the WiFi. Other areas of the uni better and the uni isn't terrible but on the ratings mentioned it could improve. Overall, if you put effort in at home you'll do well on paper.

Personally, I did not receive that grades I wanted at a level and I cane to Derby through cleaning. Don’t let that stigma say anything about you because I’m now on track to finish with a high 1st class honours and the opportunities that have been made available to me are amazing, the support is great, personal tutors are second to none and the all round a great uni!

Amazing University. I have just finished my Second year in Marketing (PR & Advertising), my course leader (Maria) is amazing. She never makes you feel like she doesn't have time for you, she will go out her way to resolve an issue or support you. People like Maria are the reason the Business school is the 10th best in the country. Most of the lectures on the Business school are amazing and really supportive. I can not recommend Derby Business School enough. Being someone who was not originally going to go to University, DBS have engaged me back with education. The amazing thing about my degree is it is hard work, but it doesn't feel like school or sixth form did. The Marketing degree have been cleverly devised to make you work ready. Live briefs make you understand what you would be doing in the world of work. My course leader, the business school and most of the marketing team have all guided and supported me, and are the reason I am currently working in an internship role.

AVOID I have been to a few universities but never have I seen such chaos. The learning material is full of errors, my tutor has been rude, vague and unhelpful and missed many mistake when correcting some weekly activities leading me to a lot of confusion. The marking is very inconsistent and my course leader has been very unhelpful. After a year I am looking at moving my credits to another university and probably bring many people from my course with me.

We are sorry to hear this. Are you still a student at The University of Derby? The best way to address this problem would be to raise the concerns with the programme team about the quality of teaching. You can either do this yourself or by putting your concers through your Union of Students College Rep. After that, if you still don't feel like your issues have been sucesfully resolved, you can go through the offical complaint procedure as detalied on our website.

Studied 3d animation course, the first year was worth nothing and felt completely unnecessary and unplanned. In the first year we had 4 different tutors, none of which were the course leader. I stuck around and hoped year 2 would be better. Nope! In true first semester one tutor pretty much never showed up leading for her sessions to be merged with the film and TV students doing the exact same as we did in the first year! The actual 3d animation part was hopeless! Get taught for 45 minutes then a lone work project to do 90% of it at home using Google to guide you.... If I'd have known this I would've accepted Birmingham instead!

A close friend of mine passed away and I needed time off to go home, when I returned I was diagnosed with severe depression. I went to speak to the heads of foundation and they told me to ‘get over it, everyone has lost people’. My friend died in a tragic accident and was missing for 2 days, this was reported on sky news and they were very aware of the situation. The same was said when I lost a family member from a long term illness 3 months later, I received a call from them on the day of his funeral asking for a copy of the Death cirtificate. The whole situation was handled very unprofessionally and lacked every ounce of empathy. When I failed my year due to all these issues I went to speak to them about my options and the fact that I was currently unable to return to my shared house due to risk of violence they told me to collect benefits and get a council house. I was shut down when I tried to make a complaint. The teaching is lacking, it’s all pre made powerpoints, nothing Else

Derby university isn’t the worst but I also can’t think of anything amazing that stands out. Shops on campus are useful, library is okay, there are never enough places to sit with your friends but if you want to sit alone you’ll find somewhere. Courses are well planned in terms of modules - modules themselves tend to be unorganised and dates/deadlines are a bit up in the air rather than having a set date, which is confusing. Lecturers themselves (on my course anyway) were nice and did their job but I wouldn’t say they went above or beyond.

The University of Derby is a really diverse institution, spread over various campuses in different locations in and around the city. It is accepting of all students, no matter who they are or where they come from and has a wide range of societies and clubs which help to celebrate this. Boasting a great Joint Honours scheme which allows students to combine two subjects into one degree that has hundreds of different combinations, Derby Uni also provides excellent academic support, and has degrees to suit each and every prospective student. The night-life is also really good, because it is a relatively small city, UoD students form a community network so on nights out you always see someone that you know, and everyone looks out for each other. Do not really have a bad thing to say about Derby, I have loved my time there and do not want it to be over!

I’ve had many issues with lecturers, there’s no consistency, most of the clubs are ran poorly and so are many of the facilities. On campus most students aren’t informed of Edurom and Unifi doesn’t work so most are restricted to the cloud which has a three hour limit. In halls I’ve had WiFi speeds as low as 0.5mb/s. Other than that the facilities are clean and fit for purpose. A lot of investment has gone into the uni. Students are listened to some of the time and the students union opened up a 24 your revision centre/bar/coffee shop which is the best thing they’ve done

I'm doing a foundation year and I have really enjoyed the support from the careers services and going to the study skills area. I've become confident in myself when I look for work and when I complete uni work. The library is open till very late and it's helpful when assignments are due or you're revising for a test. The wifi is a live saver especially when you run out of data

The university is a great modern building and with amenities like Subway, Starbucks and Papa Jons - as well as the university’s own cafe Blends, the foodcourt, the shops and SU. There is everything you could possible need at university. The library has everything you could need and normally there are enough computers and space in there. The buses are mostly quite awful, either they turn up late or don’t turn up at all on many occasions - but sometimes they do surprise you and turn up on time which is great. Currently I’m studying the foundation access course, which could be improved, although I am glad to be at university, the teaching in some of my classes is as poor as the support system. Additionally there is a constant disregard for the enivornment and an absurd amount of paper is handed out daily, for which there is no need. Asides from the negatives, the university of Derby is a great place to be. I would definitely reccomend joining a society or sports club!

I had an awful experience at derby university, the course was nothing like what they promised on the open day, it lacked creativity, direction and consistency. Personal issues were also handled awfully and they made problems seem like the victims fault and only cared about the university’s reputation and not the wellbeing of their paying students.

The lecturers are brilliant and ensure you understand each module fully before moving on. I was afraid of university before coming to Derby as I thought I was going to be looked at as another student amongst the thousands or a number in the system but my experience has been better than brilliant and I couldn’t have chosen a better university for my course.

The Kedleston Road and Britannia Mill Campus's has good facilities. However, the facilities would be better if Library is open for 24 hours a day. The computers in these library could also be better. Not many students use the student union as it is not a fun and enjoyable environment. The clubs and societies run under the student unions can be much cheaper. Wifi speeds can also be better.

This is not a university, this is table tennis game. Everybody is sending me to somebody else when I'm asking the questions. Lecturers are pretending they are happy to help but they don't actually care and it's also impossible to contact them. Unibus does not run as it should be. WiFi connection is not good as well. Societies do not communicate and they are expensive as well so I ended up doing sport somewhere else. I'm paying a lot of money for nothing and I did not get anything from my course. It seems like there are many possibilities, but the reality is different. Not everybody working at this university is actually working.

Good campus except that the lifts are quite packed and there are a lot of stairs, this is easily sorted once you learn when the rushes are and can avoid them. I haven't joined any societies, or used the student union however I know that there is help in careers services and my lecturers so far have been more than happy to talk to you about it. my course leader had a good half an hour chat with me about what I need to do and how to do it for my chosen profession

I hated this university not only are they slow in providing information but do not help at all! I am super devestated that this university has spent £9,000 of mine and I did not get anything out of this course absolutely disgusted and annoyed that my time and effort has gone to waste, I do not reccommend this university at all your better off going to BCU or UOB!

The uni itself is nice. It's small and has good facilities, i struggle with some of the lecturers however. Firstly they criticize you for not having tutorials yet they are hardly available. Secondly, they tell you not to use Wikipedia yet in one lecture the presentation the lecturer did, his information was copied and pasted straight from Wikipedia. Thirdly in one module they gave us an essay to write without actually teaching us what we were writing about, when i asked what we were to do i was told to use google and finally one lecturer gives wrong information, i checked my lecture notes after the lecture i found the information which i was given was incorrect.

The uni campus at Kedleston Road is fairly decent, with a good variety of eateries (Starbucks, Subway, the university kitchen, a cafe, and a bar), and also a small shop (Keddie's). The campus is very close together, and it's easy to get to everything. There's a good transport system called the Unibus that can get you round the city and to the uni for just £1 per journey (£10 for ten). It's also right next to Markeaton Park, if you and your friends fancy a change of scenery at lunchtime during the summer. Facilities are decent, with a good multi-floor library, student wellbeing service (very good!), and a uni doctors, among other things. The careers service is fairly good, apparently, as is the student's union (again, apparently, as I have used neither of these services). There are often careers fairs and such on in the main building, which can be useful and interesting, and the uni run a variety of events during term time.

Really good at teaching, but the SU isn't very attractive to people and students only really know about the events that they run in the uni and not much else. Derby is a really unknown place so students with lower grades usually come here, but in actuality the uni should have better students, it is because it isn't very renown and no one has heard of it, so the grade boundaries to get in are usually lower compared to other unis.

Printing is expensive. No interaction between campus's. So not aware of student union or societies. Not advertised really at markeaton or britannia mill. I am doing foundation in fashion. But it is not related to fashion at all. Its very broad. And is based on fine art. So doesn't really help you at all. The careers service is useless. They have no links to any companies. Just advise you to go on websites and help you make a ''plan'' all they offer is CV advice and how to use linkedin. Teachers on my course are late. But expect you to be on time. My course is just child's play and very boring. Never anything going on at markeaton or brit mill. Very boring dull place.

Loving my time at the University of Derby! They have a lot of great facilities such as the Student Well-Being Center and the Careers Center :) And my course is amazing (Creative Expressive Therapies). They have a huge range of courses, and some wonderful spaces. If you're looking for a course in the arts or the therapeutic sector, then I recommend this uni, as it has been a great experience for me and I'm learning so much. Although, obviously you'll know for sure if you come for an open day, because different universities suit different personalities. Choose wisely! :)

Great university for facilities and clubs ! Campus is far from town and train station though.

The food facilities on site are too expensive for students, and the subway always has a queue at least 20 minutes long so you can't get one in a lecture break. The car park is utter sh** and is ran by a load of incompetent people that target individuals by ticketing some and not others and also by picking and choosing who is let in when me the car park is allegedly 'full'. The lecturers are okay and some of the lecture theatres are, but a lot of them are uncomfortable to sit in for so long and you end up with a bad back.
