My course of Level 3 Sport has also proven to be a spectacular journey in widening my knowledge of sport through interesting modules such as sport psychology and sports nutrition as well as allowing me to take sport further.

After taking a break from education, I decided to return to study here at the University Centre. I studied the foundation degree, then I went on to complete the BSc top-up course where I learned in depth about topics including exercise physiology and advanced nutrition, which then opened up opportunities to progress.
