Marc Peart

Course: FdSc Computing with Networking
Previous school: Ferryhill Business & Enterprise College

Marc came here from school and continued his education at New College Durham to a foundation degree level as he knew he would get more support here than he would at a university

He said:

“I studied a further education course here and really liked the facilities and faculty so decided to stay to do a higher education course. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable in the fields of IT that interested me.

“The Networking Fundamental module was probably the best part of the course due to the lecturer engaging the class. Not to detract from all other members of staff, but Colin and Veronica were awesome lecturers!

"I choose to come to New College Durham rather than the university as it was cheaper, had better facilities than some universities and provided more support such as Personal Learning Coaches.

"The campus and facilities are very well maintained. New College Durham was fun, engaging and educational.  New College Durham secured a web development work placement for me, which enabled me to secure a web development job.”

Marc is now a Lead Website Developer at Models 4 Hobby.
