Course: FdA Business & Management
Katy studied a further education business course with us after she left school and progressed to the Foundation Degree in Business and Management. She then did the BA (Hons) Management programme to top-up her qualification to a degree.
“I originally enrolled at another Sixth Form Centre but I discovered that A-Levels were not for me. I then looked for work and learnt to drive, however, I felt the urge to learn and had friends who had studied at New College Durham so I went to an open evening and enjoyed the atmosphere and found the staff engaging and knowledgeable so I enrolled!
“I found the campus to be well designed and the facilities were good and well organised. I studied higher education here instead of a university as I already knew the facility and staff, and the campus was close to home.
“During my foundation degree I completed a placement at New College Durham's StudentUnion. I thoroughly enjoyed this placement as it gave me the opportunity to engage in many areas such as organising, advertising, delivering events and administration.”
Katy has just completed a master’s degree and is currently undertaking a TEFL qualification.
The dynamic and growing business and management industry is vast.
