Open Days at University of Derby

The University of Derby offers open days to all prospective students (undergraduate, postgraduate, and even online) so you can get an idea of the learning style, atmosphere and local area.

Undergraduate students can attend subject talks, learn about student life, talk to the academic staff and tour the university and halls. Postgrads, professional students and part-time students just need to register at the welcome desk for a one-to-one consultation. Online students can register for a virtual open day presented as an online webinar.

Visit the website for information on upcoming open days.
