Brookes is one of the very few universities that could enable me to row to a very high standard while still getting a great student experience and studying for the degree I want.
I love the global, cultural, and psychological elements of my course the most. It’s very interesting to learn about the effect psychology has on sport performance, and how much the cultural side of sport affects society as a whole. I also enjoyed the work experience module where I was required to find a coaching job. This was a great experience for me, it really stretched my coaching ability and I learned so many new skills.
The living accommodation is really nice at the university, with lots of different options. Cheney halls are right next to the sports centre and Harcourt halls would be great if you’re studying a sports degree as they are on the SHS campus.
The course has been so useful for me. I’ve learned my likes and dislikes and have found the staff really accessible and relatable. They have supported me 100% with my sport and have helped me in my quest to take it to the highest level. Once my course is finished I’m hoping to further my studies with a master’s, maybe in sports psychology.
