A wide range of modules to choose from

Sam Parker

“I really enjoyed my time studying Marketing and Brand Management BSc, at the University of Derby. The course included relevant teaching and a wide range of modules to choose from covering a variety of subjects. The tutors have a wealth of knowledge and experience, and are very approachable and helpful.

During the course I also had the opportunity to do a work placement year that I gained valuable skills and experience from.”
