Student Profiles

Heidi Scotting

I studied for my undergraduate degree in Biology at Durham and I had always intended to stay for a fourth year, so when I decided to pursue Human Resources, Durham University Business School was the obvious choice. I've loved my time in Durham, the colleges, as well as all of the sports and societies available, make the experience so social and it means you make really close friends with a wide range of people, not just people from your course. Once I complete my degree, I will be moving to either Manchester or London to pursue a career in people consulting.

I am from Vietnam. During my undergraduate, I studied Psychology in Italy. After that, I decided to pursue a career in Human Resources. Durham University Business School is a prestigious and high-ranking institution that will aid me greatly in my future career. The University has supported my skills, especially with the career services and interview workshop. Besides that, Durham is a lovely town with many international students and society; you can always join activities and enjoy vibrant student life.
