What brought you to study at Teesside University?

I'm from Middlesbrough so I was already aware of how great the university was. I also spoke to some Teesside University graduates who highly recommended studying here.

What was your course like?

It sounds cliché, but I can honestly say the undergraduate and postgraduate courses I did were amazing. From delivery through to the coursework - everything was spot on. The classroom environment was great too – with people from different walks of life and cultures, making it a really inspirational place to be.

What was the best thing about your course?

I liked how we were given a theoretical underpinning of certain topics, and then given the licence to put your learning into real world practice. I worked with Jazzwise Magazine and helped them put a marketing strategy proposal together.

What inspired or interested you the most?

Marketing has always been my forte I believe in the product or service that I tell people about.

What was your social life like when you were studying at Teesside University?

My social life was very good at Teesside – I really enjoyed the Students’ Union nights out.

What have you done since graduating and what are you doing now?

I started a full time marketing job as soon as I graduated and have been in full time marketing jobs ever since.
I'm currently the E-Commerce Marketing Manager at Ramsdens. I've been with Ramsdens since 2013 and have loved every minute. I could not have got to where I am today without the help of Teesside University.
