My favourite module is Creating Sustainable Environments as it allows us to apply our learning to the Teesside region and learn how our activities affect the local area.
After visiting the campus I knew straight away that I wanted to study at Teesside. I spoke to a student ambassador and they told me that local students can still live in student accommodation, as that was something I wanted to experience. I managed to get a place on my chosen course through Clearing and a room at West Parkside Village. I definitely made the right choice of University.
I studied both business and tourism before coming to Teesside and enjoyed them both. I also have an interest in events and planning. After doing some research I found out this course has several modules dedicated to events such as Events, Tourism, Culture and Heritage.
My favourite module is Creating Sustainable Environments as it allows us to apply our learning to the Teesside region and learn how our activities affect the local area. I like that we are taught about business theory on modules like Understanding Organisations and Strategic Management and Responsible Leadership as a lot of it isn’t something you would pick up in the workplace.
The library is the best facility on campus. There are spaces for independent study as well as group work. The Business School also has plenty of areas to work during your free time, and you have quick access to lecturers and staff if you have any problems. The Students’ Union is an amazing facility. It is a great place to meet new people and get to know your new roommates after you move into halls. The support services are also great, the staff are always there for you.
Through the Enterprise and Practice module I was given the opportunity to work with the charity CEO Sleepout. I worked with them on the marketing and organisation of their Big Student Sleepout events, including the ones run at Teesside University. The experience was great as I was able to apply my learning to an organisation and see how things worked practically.
I would recommend my course and the University to anyone as I have learned a lot during my time here. Teesside is in a good position with many work opportunities in the area. Tourism management covers many topics which have prepared me well for my future career.
