Derby University to cancel Spa Management degree in 2022
By Megan Whitby 15 Nov 2019
The University is yet to confirm the reason, but the UK Spa Association (UKSPA) has attributed it to reduced demand for the course.
The University of Derby, UK is axing its Spa Management degree as of 2022.

The University is yet to confirm the reason, but the UK Spa Association (UKSPA) has attributed it to reduced demand for the course, saying: "Derby University is to cease the qualification due to a steady decline of student numbers over recent years".

Derby launched the country’s first BSc (Hons) degree course in International Spa Management in September 2002. A year later, it followed it with a year-long university diploma in International Spa Management.

In a statement, The UKSPA said: "This is a sign that the spa and wellness industry is undervalued and misunderstood".

The global spa market was valued at $119bn by the GWI in 2018, but the UKSPA warns that with academic institutions retrenching, the market won't have the workforce to sustain it.

Previous students have expressed surprise at the decision. Dr Gillian Hunter PhD – Derby University alumna – told Spa Business: "During my time at Derby, the leadership was strong and committed to spa education, the course was thriving and the industry was benefiting.

"I'm surprised and disappointed to see the spa management degree at the University of Derby is closing."

UK Spa Association sets agenda for Work for Wellness initative

UKSPA plans to tackle issues surrounding the industry’s reputation in relation to employment using its five-year strategic communications plan – called the Work For Wellness initiative.

As part of the first year of the campaign, a research division will be instructed and a round table discussion will be organised. A white paper will also be produced and presented to a predetermined MP, in order to help them to lobby at a governmental level.

Phase two will introduce a media relation’s activity and creative consumer engagement.

The final phase will involve an on-the-ground initiative allowing operators to access students and careers advisors within schools and colleges nationwide, in order to introduce the multiple benefits of a career in the spa industry.

The UKSA will offer all the tools for members to introduce the opportunities of spa to a large audience but at a local community level.
