I’ve worked in the sporting industry for 6/7 years as a personal trainer and I wanted to gain a qualification that would allow me to do more within the industry. I was a competitive powerlifter and always found the psychology behind competition very interesting.
I enjoy the psychology and sports development modules the most as this is where I would like to have a career. The lecturers are great and very supportive. If you’re a bit unsure about university, like I was, they will help you and support you as much as necessary.
It’s been really easy to socialise. Everybody on the course is lovely, even if I am almost 10 years older than most of them! I have made some fantastic friends.
I’ve really enjoyed my placements so far. One of my placements led me onto my current role in sports development! I plan to continue in my role, or maybe work in sports event management. I’m also keen to get into sports psychology.
