“Hi I’m Marcus. I am an undergraduate who is currently studying Business Management.
I am undertaking an industrial placement as Corporate Relations Officer at the Business School, which has given me the great opportunity of learning and earning. In my spare time I enjoy playing football, boxing, going to music gigs/festivals, partying, eating, road trips, socialising and playing FIFA.
I currently reside in Jesmond, where the girls are beautiful and the drinks are cheap. Upon graduation I hope to secure a role which entails travelling to hot countries and eating fine cuisine.”
“My name is Francesca, though everyone knows me as Cessie (pronounced Chessie – very confusing!). I’m studying Economics and Business Management but I am currently on a placement year at the Business School. I’m really enjoying working life, although I’m looking forward to being a student again next year!
I am originally from Leeds but I am slowly being won over by the magic of Newcastle. Outside of 9-5 I enjoy music (both listening and playing), going to the gym and of course hitting the toon for a canny night out with my friends. I am also a keen skier and snowboarder, but that has been a rationed activity since surviving on a student budget…”
Henry Amm, BA (Hons) Business Management
“Hello, my name is Henry Amm and I study Business Management at Newcastle University. Originally I’m from Germany from a little town in Bavaria. In came to Newcastle in 2011 and never regretted a single day. Newcastle is a beautiful spot, especilly the quayside; and the landscape of the North East of England really is just breathtaking. I hope on this blog I can give you meaningful advice and an insight into what it means to study at this institution. Feel free to drop me a line anytime.”

“I’m Adam Renshaw and I study Business Management at Newcastle University. Currently between stages 2 and 3 undertaking a placement year within the Business School as “Corporate Relations Officer.”
I’m a Scarborough lad born and bred with a passion for Football, keeping fit, and going out in the Toon. If not on the pitch, in the gym, or in town I’ll probably be found either sleeping, watching TV/movies or eating.
Something interesting about me… I broke my right arm when I was a toddler after climbing up and subsequently jumping off my cot. I also nearly broke my nose around the same age after climbing the washing pole pretending to be Fireman Sam, getting to the top and letting go.”
