Annie Koudiane – My Start in Studying at De Montfort University
Hi, my name is Annie and I used to be a student at Christ the King Sixth Form: Aquinas. I studied BTEC Business and graduated in 2018 with a D*D*D. I have just started at De Montfort University, studying Accounting & Finance.
My university experience has been wonderful so far. Last week I had my introductory sessions where I met my lecturers, tutors and class members for my course. I really enjoyed my Matriculation ceremony, where I was welcomed by the Vice-Chancellor into the Business and Law Faculty.
I have also joined two clubs which are Archery and GoGlobal; GoGlobal lets student have the opportunity to travel the world, volunteer in another country and help the environment or local community whilst developing key skills.
I am very lucky in that with the help of Christ the King I have been awarded a £15,000 scholarship by Metric Capital Partners for the duration of my studies. Metric Capital Partners are a capital fund management company and the firm’s managing partner is a gentleman called John Sinik.
I am really looking forward to studying at De Montfort University and of a great year ahead!

“I would recommend coming to CTK as the level of support offered by the subject teachers is exceptionally good. The best thing about CTK is being part of the friendliest group of students I've ever met. I'm applying to Oxford to study Psychology. ”

“My form tutor at CTK was exceptionally supportive every day. I value the freedom and independence of controlling my own learning, staying motivated whilst also having fun. The and people and sense of community provide a great environment. I have enjoyed extra opportunities such as joining summer schools and widening participation programs and becoming a student governor.
