The University of Derby Online Learning is the thriving distance learning division of the University of Derby.

Since 2001, the University of Derby has offered online distance learning to students who required more flexible study options. As demand for these popular online distance learning courses increased, we learned to tailor course content specifically for online delivery. And in 2011, based on the increasing success of our distance learning courses, we launched the University of Derby Online Learning (UDOL).

Academic rigour, pioneering techniques

Today, our online distance learning degrees continue to match the high academic standards you would expect on campus in any British university. And we continue to exploit the latest research into online study to refine course delivery and increase the success of our online distance learning students.

Be part of a cutting edge team

As the University of Derby Online Learning continues to grow, so does our need to recruit the best staff to support students. If you are interested in joining a team at the cutting edge of online study, find out what opportunities are available.

Valued by industry

Our vocational online distance learning courses are particularly suited to busy, working professionals.  Many of our degree courses are accredited by a professional body, so you can be sure that course content is relevant, and your qualification will be recognised and valued by your industry.
