From 4pm-7pm, University lecturers will be at the Campus in the former St Helena’s grammar school on Sheffield Road to outline the range of business, engineering, IT and health care courses on offer.

Professor Margaret Bruce, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, at the University of Derby explained the benefits of part-time study: “Our flexible approach to teaching and learning enables you to fit studying around your other commitments.

“That means you can gain a professional qualification whilst working to help further your career, broadening your skills and knowledge in a flexible way, without it affecting your lifestyle.”

Courses available through part-time study in Chesterfield are:

  • HND Business and Management
  • BEng (Hons) Professional Engineering
  • FdSc Information Technology
  • Continuing Professional Development in Health and Social Care

The Campus, due to open next month, has had a multi-million-pound conversion which has been sympathetic to the listed St Helena’s building, conserving as many of its historic features as possible.

Professional and Part-Time Study Open Evening Location: Chesterfield Campus,  Sheffield Road, Chesterfield, S41 7LU, October 27, 4pm to 7pm.
