We have been cooperating with the University of Derby in the UK for a couple of years and are pleased to share our alumni experience with obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in International Spa Management within less than a year. Silvija is the first to use this opportunity and she has returned to Latvia.
“I learned about the opportunity to study at the University of Derby, England, in May 2018, when Marika Gederte had just returned from there and presented this new opportunity to the graduates. As I was the first to take this step, I had to face a few major differences in training, which required additional research from my side. All in all, I think this was a good and valuable experience for myself as a personality, because during this period I faced a lot of challenges that required nerve. Of course, I have also earned an BSc Hons Bachelor’s Degree. Would I recommend using this opportunity and getting a bachelor’s degree in less than a year? Each person has to evaluate it individually, but, if time and finances allow it, then it is worth weighing all pluses and minuses. That is exactly what I did and I decided to risk and get on the ride. Looking back, I am very pleased and happy to have decided to try my academic potential at this university and program.”
