If I could give one very important tip to all prospective students would be: ask!ask!ask! And carry on until someone responds because everyone knows something at Derby University. Here’s some examples:
1st year – Panic arises because assignments/coursework are due and referencing is still an issue or IT skills needed. University of Derby has a small department in the Ground floor of the University who can help with that, it’s called the Study Skills Office.
2nd year – You’ve improved a lot but the search for a placement is never ending and no results by December. Is it your CV? Is it your nerves at the interview? Why not visit the Careers and Employment Service to see an Employability Advisor? Furthermore, Derby Uni has the employability service, our own little Employability and Enterprise Hub located in the Atrium so it’s right there for you.
3rd year – Placement was ace, you would have stayed if you could. Or maybe you got a taste of what you don’t want to do. Or maybe you’ve turned into an entrepreneur, you want to work for yourself. Now you see all the marketing projects with fresh eyes, it all makes complete sense so you’re ready to roll – 1 st class degree here we come!
