UCB has been acknowledged as a College of Excellence by luxury spa Ragdale Hall. 

To be granted this title, the university had to meet a wide range of criteria that included having high institutional standards, establish a good professional relationship with the spa and have a high calibre of beauty and spa students who want to succeed within the industry. 

For meeting all of their detailed criteria, Ragdale Hall agrees to deliver careers presentations and advise UCB students about careers within the spa industry. They will also hold a College of Excellence open day at their Leicestershire-based spa to give students the opportunity to meet their staff and experience and watch treatment demonstrations. 

In addition to this, every year they will offer five days guaranteed work placement for two UCB spa and beauty students. 

"There was a lot of criteria that had to be met in order to win this award. I have been working closely with Ragdale Hall for a number of years and have built a good relationship with them. Our students have done work experience with them in the past and their feedback on their skills and professionalism has been nothing short of excellent. UCBs partnership with Ragdale Hall shows our continued commitment to our students careers and to the spa industry. I hope that we will continue to work together in the future to provide students with the best opportunities the industry has to offer."

Helen Scanlon, a Placement Tutor at UCB that applied for this award.
