University hosts annual visits

A record number of students from China travelled to Bondholder the University of Derby.

The group of 280 students from four different universities - the largest group to ever visit the University from China - were welcomed to the Kedleston Road site by the Mayor of Derby, Councillor John Whitby, and staff to get an insight into the different courses available and a taste of student life in the city.

A series of seminars were hosted on courses offered in Engineering and Technology, Education, Sports, Health and Hospitality, and student ambassadors were on hand to give tours of the campus facilities, including the Bloomberg Suite - the University’s dedicated trading room which provides a simulation of what it is like to work on a real trading floor in the financial district. The University’s state-of-the-art Sports Centre was also open for students to look around.
