There are so many reasons as to why I chose to study my course at Brunel University London. Initially I was recommended to come here by my school teachers in sixth form, but then I saw the variety of modules and opportunities open to me. Plus the labs and sports facilities on offer are fantastic, especially the Indoor Athletics Centre. I also get plenty of contact hours with the staff and the mixed assessment structure works for me. The academics here challenge me to do my best which I really appreciate.
I liked that the generic Sport, Health and Exercise course lets me keep my career options open and therefore offers pathways into many different areas. I know that I want to work in health, physical activity and well-being in the future.
The things I like most about my course is how hand’s on it is especially the practicals in Physiology.
I’ve also been on a work placement with Access Sport who run the Ignite Disability Inclusion programme. The main focus of my work was with women and girls in engagement and re-engagement. This linked in with my dissertation, ‘How and Why do Older People Engage or Disengage From Sport and Physical Activity?’ The Age Simulation suits (which add 30-40 years to the person wearing it) I got to work with were really unique and really helped with my dissertation.
