“Learning has never been more fun”

“I have achieved more than I ever thought was imagineable at Derby. The lecturers test your practical and mental abilities to the maximum, there is never a 'dull' lecture 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."
