    I’ve been able to apply what I’ve learned to aspects of my own lifestyle.

    I chose Brookes because of its great location; I wanted to start rowing, which the city of Oxford is perfect for, and the course fitted my interests perfectly.

    One of my placements led me onto my current role in sports development!

    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 was able to see elite coaching in action and had the chance to carry out my own research.

    I really enjoyed the sociological based modules, where talented lecturers were able to push the whole group to think deeper and gain a real understanding of the subject area.
