We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Derby is a busy city in England, located in the east midlands region - around 115 miles north of London. It is home to one university, The University of Derby, as well as a graduate medical school associated with the University of Nottingham. There are around 25,000 students in the city.
Derby was the site of many important engineering innovations during the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century industrial revolution, with many new mill technologies being pioneered in the city. Since then it has continued to be an important manufacturing centre, home to famous UK companies such as Rolls-Royce.
Postgraduate students in Derby benefit from easy access to its wide range of universities, whilst living in a city with a strong local history and vibrant regional culture.
Derby retains many museums and heritage sites associated with its industrial heritage, as well as a range of famous public parks and gardens (Derby Arboretum was actually England's first public park).
Sport is also an important feature of the city's identity, with a large local football club (Derby FC) and successful cricket and rugby teams.
The University of Derby has its origins in the mid-nineteenth century, but was granted its university charter in 1992. It offers a range of postgraduate courses in various subject areas.
High quality postgraduate education in medicine is also offered by the University of Nottingham's graduate-entry medical school, located within the Royal Derby Hospital.
Finally, Derby's convenient location and strong road and rail transport links also place it within reach of various other famous English universities in nearby cities such as Nottingham and Leicester, as well as Coventry, Birmingham and Sheffield.
