Natasha's dream job

“Studying for my degree at the University of Derby has been the best three years of my life. All of the lecturers know you by your first name, they know exactly how you work, how you like to learn and have so many connections. They have opened my eyes to the world of spa and its endless opportunities. The experienced tutors guided me to find my dream job as a therapies supervisor at The Scarlet Spa in Cornwall.”
