p>Once again many students have been successful in reaching their first choice destinations. Students are going to universities far and wide, from the local universities of Teesside, Newcastle and Durham to those further afield such as Northampton, Coventry and Queen Mary's. Equally, students have opted to study a real range of courses including: marketing, paramedic science, media and journalism, and international fashion promotion as well as the more traditional subjects. Alongside those students going to university, it is pleasing that in such a competitive labour market, several students have gained employment and apprenticeships.
