The University of Derby was rated Gold in the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) and a Top 30 UK University in the Guardian University Guide 2020. Driven by an athlete centred approach, our academic strength is backed by UoD’s commitment to supporting student-athletes in both their academic and sporting ambitions.

As a Top 50 sporting institution, The University of Derby is a hub for talented athletes and has a track record of supporting elite level athletes. Significant investment in high-class facilities, such as the Sports Centre and Human Performance Unit, sport science expertise and performance level coaches has enabled us to provide an impressive package of support tailored towards athlete needs, delivered by our experienced and qualified team.

Adjustments have been made to the University’s academic regulations to enable flexibility should the need arise for talented student-athletes which will be assured by our Academic Registrar.  Being awarded the TASS Dual Career Accreditation is a testament to the established processes and changes implemented for students and staff.

UoD and Team Derby are delighted to become part of the wider TASS network and look forward to working closely with TASS to continue to develop the Dual Career pathway environment.
