Jing Zhao, China
BA (Hons) TV and Film Production
Coming to Teesside was one of my top choices. I knew that Teesside University had a good teaching team, as well as good facilities for my course. I also learned that Teesside University takes good care of students, especially international students.
Apart from the technical skills I learned from the university, the placement and opportunities that Teesside University offered me was most helpful for my career. I got involved in about 20 placements and made myself very useful, and I got my current job through the contacts I made during work experience. The career service and our placements and projects officer were very supportive and helpful.
I have now returned to China, and my current role is associate producer in China Intercontinental Communication Centre (CICC) and I am a researcher at Meridian Line Films in York.

Doctorate in Counselling Psychology
The course I study is available in about 13 universities across the UK – about six of which are in and around London. When I looked at the course content at Teesside University, I saw they teach a wide perspective here.
The curriculum is well planned and spaced out, and it really suits my needs. The fees for courses like mine are roughly the same across the UK, but the living expenses at Teesside are much more affordable, and this is very attractive.
The campus is great. I have access to the library and I love the ambiance there. Student services are wonderful. I access the services and it has been an excellent experience.
I would definitely recommend my course here at Teesside. They are experienced, they have worked as psychologists. The faculty share real life experience. This is the main difference with India.
