Terri Kerr, BA (Hons) International Spa Management

Choosing International Spa Management at Derby

The reason I chose to do International Spa Management was because it stood out to me most. I’d previously studied a two year hair and beauty diploma and then went on to college to carry on with my levels 2 and 3 so ha some experience that I wanted to pursue further.

When attending the Open and Applicant Days, all the students and lectures were so friendly and fantastic with any questions. The facilities were also well above anything I’d seen before in any academic setting.

My personal highlights

The highlights of the course so far have most defiantly been meeting new people, and also being in a new environment. While at college and school I was always static in the same place so being able to move away and having a new start has been refreshing.

My career plans

My degree will help me pursue my career plans but also give me the experience to be able to broaden my knowledge.

To anyone considering studying International Spa Management at the University of Derby I would say do it! I’ve been here eight weeks and so far it has been the best experience of my life. I’ve met so many amazing people and I’ve truly met friends for life - you’d honestly be surprised but how well and fast you settle in.

Everyone is in the same boat as you, there’ve moved hundreds of miles away from friends, family, and even pets! There will be nowhere else in the world that you can have this experience. So just go along for the ride, and enjoy it.
