I was studying in their London campus (LCUCK) and I would say the actual university was good, but the Campus wasn't that great.If you managed to study in Derby, don't be afraid I recommend them.

Quite a good university, really enjoy the facilities such as the library and student food services. I feel there could be a much better nightlife. The gym is also below average but there are many university gyms you can use nearby. Overall, i Do recommend this university.

I have so far really enjoyed my time on the Fine Art course at Derby University . The support from tutors is excellent, and they are always trying to help you to achieve your best. Tutors are very approachable and know each student on a one to one basis. While studying in this course I have been able to grow as an artist and experience new ways of seeing.

As an a-level student that took biology, chemistry, and maths, the decision to do this degree was quite daunting, due to my lack of experience in the subject. However, it turned out to be the best decision I could have made, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the doing the foundation degree, so much so, I am doing the top up third year to gain a full degree in culinary arts.

The course is wonderful! You must have passion for helping people and you must be determined and open minded. The course is like any other course in terms of assignments and deadlines. However, there is one great thing, THERE IS ONLY ONE EXAM throughout the entire 3 years of the course!!!! How much better can it get? The tutors are very helpful and if you love helping people and being a part of their recovery, then this is definitely the course for you!

Course module review - Public History: Marketing and Presenting the Past, 22/05/2016

Public History: Marketing and Presenting the Past
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

The public history module is unique as far as I can see in undergrad level, it requires in groups to research, write, market and present a conference paper for a conference put on by the university. This module was great as it allowed me to not just word academically but allowed me to learn skills such as marketing and website building. It also has given me the most self joy as it was amazing being about to present my research to the public.

Going on placement is a massive part of this degree and I only feel there should be more days involved. Being a full time student on placement teaches you many things about the real world and actually helps to give you confidence when you are applying for jobs as you begin to recognise you meet person specifications.

Definitely the hardest module that I have ever taken. I believe this to be more important that the IS itself simply because it requires you to do a number of different things in a short period of time, act on the spot and sort out your own time. it was difficult to do this but regardless, I believe that it is one core module from the whole degree, as this module encompasses every aspect that you have learned and places it into one piece of coursework.
