Business case study

Jessica McKie Level 3 Diploma in Business

“I decided to join Newcastle College after visiting one of their Open Evenings. I received great advice from a one-to-one with a course tutor and I was able to enrol on the course right there and then. I was really impressed by the facilities and how open and encouraging the staff were.

When I first joined the course I was very shy and found it hard to voice my opinions. My tutor encouraged me to come out of my shell and to seize this opportunity and make it my own. Through his support and belief, I have really developed both as a student and as a person.

After attaining 16 distinctions on my course, I gained a place on the prestigious Pan Am Tourism Marketing course at Lancaster University. With only 8 places on offer a year and the opportunity to work in Boston, Massachusetts for 2 years, I am thrilled with this opportunity. I would really recommend studying at Newcastle College.”
