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!

My teachers have helped me with my UCAS application and the management of my work - I plan to go on to the University of Bristol or the University of Bath. I would recommend CTK due to the large support system that is available to the students. ”

“I joined CTK Aquinas knowing that I wanted to study at a Russell Group university. I am currently studying a degree in BA Global Health and Social Medicine at King's College, London and I hope to proceed into doing a MSc Health & Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I would recommend CTK because the teachers are very supportive and will help you to reach your educational goals.”

“What I enjoyed most about CTK was being able to meet other like-minded motivated people. CTK is a great environment to develop yourself, as you are surrounded by motivated peers and lectures who strive to get the most out of you. I achieved my grades and went on to study Maths at UCL.”
