Cristina Duran

Course: BA (Hons) Management (Top-up)

Previous school: Saint Charles College in Madrid

Cristina originally studied at Saint Charles College in Madrid. The course at New College Durham was recommended to her and she was excited by the prospect of embarking on an adventure to study in Durham.

She said:

“New College Durham was recommended to me for the top-up management course I wanted to study. I really enjoyed studying the degree programme at New College Durham, the atmosphere was great.

“The course developed my skills and knowledge in so many ways, particularly the optional Events and Marketing Management module. It allowed me to learn so much about the Marketing theory and assisted me with the completion of my Dissertation.

“I am extremely grateful for the support provided, as I have a hearing impairment and for me it was absolutely necessary to follow the course. The top-up degree provided me with everything I needed – I intend to continue my studies in Durham to achieve a masters degree in marketing.”

Cristina has since joined Wealth of Advice's client administration team. Managing Director, Chris, has put a training and development plan in place to equip Cristina with key industry qualifications. North East Times covered the story, click here.
