I was looking for something that utilised both theory and practice and this course offered exactly that. The practical side of the course was the biggest benefit to my development. Learning about techniques is great in theory but there are a lot of places where it stops there. Here we learned the theory and then went and practiced the tests on each other so we had some experience. This built confidence and developed other areas of my personality.
The experiences I got through studying here, as well as the course content, has definitely helped me. Without the knowledge and experiences I had while studying at the University I wouldn't be where I am now.
The people were the highlight of my time at university. From my class mates to the professors, everyone made my time special. It's great to see how my classmates are all using the skills and knowledge they learned taking them on their own paths to success.
The skills, friendships and professional connections you make will take you wherever you want to go. The university set us up for success and your determination and drive to be successful will take you the rest of the way. The University helped me decide what I wanted to do with my life and started me on my journey to be where I am today.
On my first day, if someone had told me I would be heading the performance analysis department at an American University with links in the EPL and MLS, I wouldn t have believed them for a second. But here I am and it all started when talking to a professor about the future and what the Sport and Exercise Science course could lead to.
