Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management
“Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!
I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”
Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management
Sumedha found that modules were covered in great detail; smaller classes are beneficial because they enable the students to have the lecturer’s personal attention. “Lecturers at Derby are extremely supportive and very friendly and my class mates are truly international. Being exposed to various cultures here in Derby while studying has already helped me and it will continue to help me when I start working in an international environment.”
Samuel Joseph MSc Conservation Biology
“The lecturers here are friendly, resourceful, supportive, approachable and always keen to pass on their knowledge and skills to students. Members of staff in the library are wonderful people. They are helpful and ever ready to assist any student.”
Completing the Conservation Biology course has left Samuel better equipped and informed, enabling him to assist younger generations in a range of areas such as computing, analytical methods, conservation of habitats and species of all kinds when teaching back home.
“I will recommend the University of Derby to as many as are ready to learn and reach a better height for their personal growth and the world in general.”
