University of Derby Online Learning Student Reviews

  • Duane Stapleton, MSc Environmental Health

    Duane is an Environmental Health Technican who completed his MSc Environmental Health degree while in the Army.

    “Studying online is allowing me to learn whilst on the job. I value the convenience and challenge of studying without having to enter a classroom. Studying with UDOL has enabled me as a manager, to be more aware of the regulations and my responsibilities surrounding health and safety, disease surveillance and reporting. As a microbiologist, I now understand that role that the Environmental Health Officer plays in disease prevention and my role in diagnostics.”

  • Michael Donohoe, MBA

    I chose to study online because of the flexibility. The ability to work out of hours and over weekends meant that the impact at work and home was kept to a bare minimum. I would not have been able to study any other way.

    I feel that my personal approach in business is much more 'holistic' as a result of my studies at the University of Derby Online Learning. I feel much more confident as a person; it’s a great feeling.
