I chose Brunel because of its reputation as a good sporting university and the fact that they offered me an academic scholarship due to my BTEC grades being very high. The teaching is very good at Brunel – my lectures help me to fully understand key topics. There are a range of quizzes, tasks, lab sessions and workshops that are fully beneficial. Lecturers and my personal tutor are constantly handing us relevant and up-to-date information from timetable changes to new revision and coursework material to help us though our studies.
The best thing about Brunel is the range of activities, opportunities and social activities. Brunel has its very own bar and club with regular themed nights. I have two part time jobs – my first job is football coaching kids which I do every Saturday morning and the second is being a Widening Participation Ambassador for Brunel University (which is also paid I might add!), plus it looks great on my CV. I currently play U21/semi-pro football for Crawley Down in the Ryman South Division which is my one serious hobby.
I am interested in sports psychology and how personality affects performance. I would like to work in a sports club and apply knowledge gained from my course. I would definitely recommend my course as it is exciting and challenging.
