Sports Science Students' placement combines sciences with business

Alex Awofisan

Brunel’s great because all the lecture rooms are on one campus; it makes it really easy to get to classes.

Why did you choose to study at Brunel?

I chose my course at Brunel University London because it gave me the opportunity to do a business-related placement in my third year.  Also, it’s not often you get to mix analytical skills from science with a competitive edge from business. I get to access different parts of knowledge in those areas which I wouldn’t normally be exposed to.  I enjoy the business side most because it gives me a different perspective on life in the business world.

How did you find your work placement?

My work placement was really enjoyable. I loved that I learned how to be a professional asset to a company. During my placement I created an online database that sped up the user’s recovery time from illness and injury.
