Why Teesside?

I grew up in Middlesbrough and all my friends were here, so I wasn’t ready to leave.

Why business economics?

During a gap year I visited my cousin in London and chatted with a trains consultant who majored in economics. The conversation got me interested in the subject, so I applied to University through clearing. I want to get on a graduate scheme in the economics sector, and I need a degree to do this.

Favourite thing about the course?

That it relates to real life situations, like the growing energy crisis and upcoming recession. It explains decisions made by politicians and helps me understand what is happening around me. So far, I have loved the Business Finance and Introduction to Macroeconomics modules.

Tell us about the campus and services

The Library is absolutely amazing – one of my favourite places. You can find so many resources there and the staff are always happy to help.

What skills have you learned?

Doing presentations during my course is helping me with my public speaking skills. It’s really boosted my confidence and ability to communicate my thoughts clearly.

Any hobbies or extracurricular activities?

I volunteer at the Riding for the Disabled Association, which is helping people with disabilities to ride horses and ponies. I also work for the National Citizen Service.

Would you recommend this course?

Yes. The lecturers are so helpful, and this course opens your mind to think logically and see things from a wider perspective.

Any advice for future students?

Try not to stress too much. There is a lot of work, but it is also enjoyable, and you can make so many new friends and try out hobbies.
