Baasit Siddiqui speaking at a University of Derby open day.

Open Days at Derby really give you a sense of the excellence and expertise within each subject area and how much the University genuinely cares. Staff and students truly recognise the importance of answering questions from family, friends and loved ones who are supporting their family members in making a huge decision.
