Course: BSc (Hons) Podiatry

Previous school: Haydon Bridge High School

Holly was eager to start a career in podiatry.

She said:

“New College Durham was an obvious choice due to location and the course offered. The clinical facilities were the best thing about the course. I also really enjoyed the work placements opportunities. I gained experience working for the NHS which gave me an insight into a real working environment. This helped me develop and apply my skills and knowledge.

“The support was fantastic. All my tutors were readily available to help me. They were keen to offer additional information and extra guidance which was nice.

“My experience at New College Durham was educational and fun. I am now working for Newcastle Foot Clinic as a MSK Podiatrist.”

Holly secured full-time employment as a MSK Podiatrist for Newcastle Foot Clinic. She plans to further her knowledge by completing a master’s degree in the near future.
