I chose Brunel University because of the amazing career opportunities that past graduates from my chosen programme of study have been privy to. These opportunities have not only demonstrated the high quality relationships between Brunel staff members and notable sporting organisations (e.g. The English FA, Sutton Tennis Academy), but also indicate the calibre of student that is produced by Brunel in this discipline. Additionally, the excellent sporting facilities at Brunel strongly appealed to me, as I am an avid athlete with an interest in many sports.

The things that I like most about studying at Brunel are the professional and supportive nature of members of staff, the wide range of academic support services offered to students, and its ideal location - right on the outskirts of the international hub that is London - a dream set-up for any international student!

The accommodation here at Brunel is first-rate. The rooms are sufficiently equipped for student life, outfitted with a study desk, bookshelves, your own private shower (for en suite rooms) and even a poster board to fit important reminders or a timetable. The kitchen area is also well taken care of by the Residence staff on a daily basis.

I would advise any new student at Brunel to learn not only module content, but to learn from module leaders' experience as Brunel has lecturers that are world leaders in their respective fields. Additionally, I would encourage any new student to try something new, as there are various avenues through which students can, for example, try a new sport or exercise class without any hassle or commitment. At Brunel, I am a member of the on campus gym - More Energy Fitness. I am also a member of the Brunel Tennis Club.

I would like to pursue a career as a Chartered Sport and Exercise Psychologist. My MSc degree represents stage one in the British Psychological Society's required training to attain my aforementioned career occupation, thus my degree here at Brunel will lay the foundation necessary for me to be a practitioner of the highest quality.
