The College of Business offer a wide range of outreach activities which can be delivered at your school or college or at one of our campuses.

Our taster sessions all contain material and activities from our degree programmes, allowing your students to experience university style learning and discover more about the topics they may cover.

We have activities in both Derby Business School and the Department for Hotel, Resort and Spa Management.

Our Outreach Assistants

Our outreach assistants are current, undergraduate students within the Derby Business School who have undergone full training in working with young people and a full Disclosure and Barring Service check. They deliver informative and interactive sessions and are always happy to talk about their own experiences, giving your students a real taste of what it is really like to go to university.

Outreach - Derby Business School

The Business School have an exciting range of taster sessions, subject talks and experience days which will motivate and inspire your students. These sessions will challenge your students not only academically but will also develop key skills such as team work, communication, organisation and time management.

Many of the taster sessions can be delivered either at your school or college and cover topics such as quality control, logistics, negotiation and global business. In addition we also have our popular Business challenge Days and the Simventure Experience, both of which are held at our Kedleston Road campus in Derby. 

Outreach - Spa

For students who are interested in our range of Spa Management degrees we now have a range of taster session options. We can offer talks at your school or college as well as a spa taster day at our beautiful campus which is situated in the spa town of Buxton. By visiting the university your students will be able to see the facilities first-hand and, should they wish, experience a mini spa experience. All of the options and the prices for the mini spa experience can be found in the activity brochure.
