Course taken: Sport Level 3
School Attended: Ulverston Victoria High School
What are you doing after College?
I would like to attend University to study sport studies or sports coaching on a 3-year course. I would preferably like to attend Edge Hill University as their sports facilities are excellent and my ongoing grades match their grade requirements. I would love to study at Loughborough University, however this is only a small option and I will have to wait and see what grades I can achieve at the end of my second year, as their requirements are a bit higher than other universities.
What were the best bits about your course?
I enjoyed every minute of my course in my first year because there were many opportunities to get involved with different sporting activities and volunteering events. The trip to Club La Santa was one of the best bits of the year, as it was an amazing experience and a chance to try sports that I’d never personally played before. It was great to meet and get along with people from College I had not spoken to so far in the year which was a great confidence booster. Another good thing about the course is that I was able to take part in loads of practical sessions, and also have the chance to volunteer for events e.g. primary school football competitions and taster days.
Why did you choose your course?
I chose my course because I have a great passion for sport and have never had the chance to study the different aspects of it in good detail, which is something I wanted to do.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I chose Lancaster & Morecambe College because the sport facilities are brilliant and all the staff are friendly and easy to get along with. I had heard great reviews of the College from past students which also pulled me towards LMC. There were more sport based opportunities than other colleges had to offer.
What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the course?
Go for it and make sure you grab every opportunity because it is the best experience you will have and it is a great course filled with great staff who will always be there to help with work and any issues you may have. It is a brilliant course and you will have a great time studying, learning new things and meeting new people. You will be surrounded by kind and helpful people so you will always feel welcome.
