Previous institution: Northumbria University
Course: BSc (Hons) Podiatry
Former podiatry student Ruth came to New College Durham as she wanted a change of career due to family life. She described her time here as professional, effective and convenient.
She said: “I decided to study at New College Durham as it is in a great location, it also had the specific course I wanted and a good reputation. I liked the high standards of the facilities such as the LRC and the off-site clinics specific to podiatry. The best thing about the course was the experience and knowledge of the course tutors. The campus was compact and it was easy to locate everything, plus the free parking was a bonus.”
Ruth is now employed as a fully qualified podiatrist for the NHS. She would like to set up her own business as a private podiatrist in the future.
