“I chose this course because of my family background in business and my passion for sport. The practical classes give you valuable experience and allows people to continuously improve and excel in the industry after college. For example as part of the performance analysis module, I used software such as Dartfish to analyse games. The Personal Training module allowed me to put what I learned in year 1 and 2 into practice.

The lecturers have a great understanding and are very supportive. They have all worked in the industry and they practice what they preach. During my time at college I have made amazing friends and will have great memories for the rest of my life.

I would recommend this course to anybody who has an interest in business and have a passion for sport.”
