Mauro Cardoso

Mauro Cardoso from Great Yarmouth, completed his degree in BSc (Hon) Sport Performance Analysis. In his final year Mauro was elected Vice-President of the University’s Students’ Union. 

 “My lasting memories will be the friendships that I built through my course and also through participating in the University men’s football team. I was able to connect with people from around the country and became friends with people who are different from my friends back home.” 

“Before university, I was coaching at a school and working in a warehouse. I was meant to be starting an apprenticeship, but it got cancelled. I felt like I needed more in my life and I wanted to achieve big things. Therefore, I decided to go to university. I wanted to study at the University of Suffolk because of the opportunity to work with professional clubs through my degree course. Before attending university, I felt lost in terms of my career. Now, I am confident in my career choice and I am excited to get going. I am obsessed with being successful so I can support my whole family. My parents worked hard, extremely hard, to bring me to England from Portugal, so all I want to do is repay them.”
