Several Hours of teaching/lectures/seminars/tutorials and group work a week! Content of course very good, some bits need a lot of work doing on it. Very interesting, thought provoking and challenging course. Essays, Exams, Presentations, Journals, Surveys, Multiple Choice and other forms of assessment×

There are a lot of shops on campus offering very good value for money food. The careers centre sends out regular employment opportunities via email. There are no compulsory course costs for the Sport and Exercise courses. Everything at Derby Uni is local so most places can be got to on foot, if not, fare-priced Uni buses run around town, to the train station and to the halls of residence etc.×
A variety of modules and assessments Lecturers are quick to respond Lectures are not very often cancelledReport

The common room in the Buxton halls was a great social place for students to meet up with their friends. Derby's student union also held regular events on Students Night to make it different and keep it fresh. The Students Union is really good when it comes to social ideas.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
