Meet our Students

Ellen

My name is Ellen and I am from Tianjin, China. I am currently enrolled in the MSc in Finance at Durham University Business School. I finished my bachelor’s degree at Bangor University before I came to Durham and had some internship experience at a local financial services company. Before I first arrived in Durham, I expected a very quiet and lovely town with a great reputation. There are various extra-curricular activities for students within university and colleges which is unique at Durham. I currently am being the Ustinov college ambassador for Student Community Action and the assistant treasurer of Graduate Common Room. After graduating from Durham, I hope I could start my career with a finance related job at a global company with my international background. My advice to a future MSc student is that always be open to the unknown - there are a lot of things waiting for you to explore in Durham!




Christie

My name is Christie and I am an international student from Hong Kong. Having finished an undergraduate degree here at Durham University in Economics last year, I decided to stay on to complete a postgraduate degree in MSc Finance (Economics and Finance).
I chose to study at Durham University 4 years ago because I really liked its collegiate system. In my opinion, colleges are like second-homes. While it may be difficult at times to make friends in lectures or seminars, being part of a college enables us to meet other like-minded people regardless of what courses they are enrolled in. Besides, Durham is a prestigious University located in one of the most beautiful and safest cities in the UK. I am confident to say that I still get amazed by the sceneries in Durham!


One of the things that surprised me the most when I arrived in Durham was how small the city was. Having grown up in a metropolitan city, Durham city was by no means how I imagined it to be. But, my worries were soon overcome by how convenient everything was located in Durham and the vast amount of activities that we could participate in. Due to the size of the city, it is possible to reach shops and University easily on foot, thus saving loads of time and transportation costs. Whenever we want to take a break from University and do some proper shopping, Newcastle is easy to reach by train.


As Durham is a collegiate University, there are various societies that students can join on both collegiate and University level. This is a great opportunity for students to step out of their comfort zones and try something new because college level sports and societies are often less intense than those on University level. For instance, I was part of the volleyball team in my college and another college choir. Having said that, there are also many societies on University level under the Durham Student Union that are open to accepting members with no previous experience. For example, I joined the University Dancesport team in my second year at Durham with no former experience in dancing and competed for the team since then. Because there are so many choices on what to participate in aside from academic studies, you will rarely find yourself bored without knowing what to do.


This year, I have nominated myself to be a student representative for my course. It is not only a good opportunity for me to connect with other students on my course, but to also offer help based on my own experiences and to help improve the learning experiences for the upcoming students. In general, I think the MSc courses are very well-structured with lots of academic-related opportunities offered for students to participate in. For instance, the business school organises mock trading competitions every term and international study tours during Easter Term. The business school also provides generous careers guidance to students by dedicating an in-house careers team.


Hopefully by now you will be able to see that Durham University is a place that offers all-round experiences to students. To get the most out of your experiences here, I would advise you all to be open-minded and do not be afraid to try something new!

Xiao Chen

Caroline CHEN.jpg
My name is Xiao Chen and I am from China. I’m currently enrolled on the MSc in Finance (Accounting and Finance) at Durham University Business School and I am also GCR of Ustinov College.

I have a Bachelor degree from Beijing Normal University, Zhuhai and I have also passed the CMA (Certified Management Accountant).

From March – July 2017 I worked as an employment assistant in Beijing Normal University, Zhuhai, China. I have also worked as an accountant in Dexinlong Chemical Co. Ltd., Yuncheng city, Shanxi Province, China. I have also been a campus manager in Global Education & Technology Co. Ltd., Zhuhai, China.

The first thing I needed to get used to when I arrived in Durham was to experience the different education system. Then I got to make friends with people from different countries and learned how to communicate with people from different cultures.

The most important reason why I chose Durham is because of its reputation and the MSc in Finance (Accounting and Finance) was my favourite. The other reason is the weather as I spent 4 years in Zhuhai which is very hot in the Summer.

Durham is a very peaceful city and the people are very nice as they will help you if you have any problems. Durham is a very suitable place to study.

The MSc is a demanding course as you have to attend the lectures, seminars, finish assignments and read many articles. However, after finishing all of this you get to hang out in Durham!

My plan is to return to China and have a small party with my friends and then I will find a job.
