Christie Swinton

Where are you from?
Carnoustie, Scotland.

What was your undergraduate degree?
BA (Hons) Music at Newcastle University.

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
I worked on the marketing for a music event enterprise project in the final year of my undergraduate degree and really enjoyed it, so I wanted to increase my existing marketing knowledge and learn in-demand digital skills.

What do you like best about the course so far?
I’ve enjoyed learning practical skills through creative tasks like video editing and creating promotional materials using Adobe software, as well as gaining industry insight and experience through our live-client projects and guest speakers.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
Currently my favourite app is Happyfeed, it’s a daily journal that encourages you to practice gratitude by writing 3 things that went well or that you’re grateful for each day.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
While studying in Newcastle, I once performed in a string quartet for the Royal Navy at HMS Calliope.
