University of bright futures


Our main campus is in Derby, a hi-tech city with lots going on. The campus is spread across several sites, from our main one at Kedleston Road which also houses our Sports Centre and main library, to One Friar Gate Square, our specialist building for law and criminology courses. Markeaton Street is your base for arts, engineering and technology and boasts a new STEM Centre as well as a separate building dedicated to fashion and textiles. A short step from here is the beautifully restored Britannia Mill, where you can study fine art, dance, social work or creative expressive therapies.

All our sites provide study spaces and food outlets for your downtime between lectures. We’ve invested £200 million in our facilities over the past ten years which means you’ll be learning in hi-tech surroundings, including a mock hospital ward, multi-scene Forensic Training Facility and Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab, to name a few.

There’s free transport between sites in Derby, accommodation and the city centre, so it’s easy to get around.


Our Buxton Campus is a leading spa and wellness town on the edge of the Peak District, one of the UK’s busiest national parks. The town provides the perfect location for our hospitality, spa, culinary arts, events, tourism and outdoor courses. We’re based in the historic Devonshire Dome, equipped with everything you need to perfect your skills, including high-specification kitchen, restaurant and café and award-winning commercial day spa.

At Chesterfield you’ll find the old and new combining to create state-of-the art provision for nursing and health care courses. We’ve transformed the former Chesterfield Girls’ Grammar School into a modern, bright base for your studies. Among its facilities is a cutting-edge Immersive Interactive Simulation Suite, replicating real-life scenarios in a safe learning environment.
