I am currently on my 3rd year of studies as a Business Management student and I have to say that my 3 years in the University of Derby was an amazing experience. That’s why I chose to do my masters degree in derby next year
I'm grateful for the opportunity to study at the University of Derby. It's like a dream comes true. The campus provides the best possibilities to exceed our learning opportunities. The staff are very welcoming and always willing to help you out. The university cares about you and your well-being and tries to do the best to provide you with the most amazing experiences during your studies.
The University of Derby is an incredible place. As an international student, I'm grateful to the Uni for being so accepting and the staff for helping me out with anything I'd need. The people I've met here are also amazing, and I'm sure lots of them will be friends for life.
Very unorganised Uni especially the Engineering department. Half of the lectures teach outdated/useless stuff and have no idea what subject they are actually meant to teach. And most importantly these lectures have very little industry experience. The uni also feels more like a school than an actual higher education teaching facility. The staff that are required to structure and deal with complaints from students are fake and don’t actually change anything based on student feedback. In addition all the official statistics and feedback from the courses are not real as for my course many students were not satisfied with the quality of lectures and the course overall, but for some reason the statistics for the course show otherwise. There is absolutely no real help from Careers Service. They showed a couple of websites that everyone looking for opportunities already uses without their help. But at least the WiFi is good.
I have previously completed undergraduate and masters degrees at Bangor then moved to Derby to undertake a professional level course at masters level. Worst decision of my life to be frank. There are no ends of problems from enrolment to just accessing time table. One year I did not receive my time table for an entire semester and the university excused it by saying "enrolment is not a smooth time, there will always be problems." or "other people have issues with their time tables as well." The stress was that bad I had to have time off from study from a mental break down. I returned this year to EXACTLY the same problems the year before, only told when the course begins 3 days before it starts, no information about enrolment no timetable access an the university cannot even inform student finance of my enrolment once it was completed. Going from top 5 universities to bottom 40 is indeed a hard shock to the system.
I was lied to at the open evening by lecturers so that I would enrol. The course was disorganised and some of the lecturers that we had were not knowledgeable enough in the field. The content of the course was not engaging enough. I tried to find help as I wanted to leave. But that was also dreadful and I ended up being stuck on a course that I did not like.
