“Learning has never been more fun”

Andy Heyes

“I have achieved more than I ever thought was imaginable at Derby. The lecturers test your practical and mental abilities to the maximum, there is never a ‘dull’ lecturer and everyone is enlightening and inspiring … learning has never been more fun.

“For me, the difference came when I went on placement at The Berkeley in London. To say the experience was an eye-opener is an understatement.”
