Our online courses are also subject to the same intense validation process which scrutinises all proposed courses, to ensure they match up to the high standard of courses that we offer at the University of Derby. Our validation processes are in place to ensure that our courses have the same level of academic rigour as any course you would study across the UK.
All of our online qualifications are worth the same in terms of their credit value as an on-campus degree. Your award will be from The University of Derby and will state the name of the course that you studied – e.g. BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies. There is no reference to the mode of study on your certificate; it is only referred to on the transcript. We advise students to check before enrolling if their qualifications will be accepted in their country.
As with all Higher Education Institutions in the UK, we are required to adhere to Quality Assurance processes that are set out by the UK government. The University of Derby is also subject to reviews from the Higher Education Review at regular intervals. Please read the University of Derby’s official statement which confirms the quality and standards of our online qualifications and their comparability with campus based qualifications.
