    I like the idea of getting a more in-depth understanding of concepts related to sport and exercise, and I’m thoroughly enjoying the face-to-face components of this course. The lecturers are very friendly, and they care deeply about helping us to succeed. The compulsory kindergarten placement was also very beneficial.

    What I like about ɫӰ is that it has small class sizes so you get to know your lecturers. The lecturers really help you and give you great opportunities in the field that help further your career, such as internships, volunteering, and participating in research.

    It’s been good having ɫӰ graduates as they bring skills that are up to date with the current information in the industry. In this industry, having staff who are ɫӰ graduates is an extra qualification a lot of personal trainers don’t have. So I’ve gone out of my way to look for people with those qualifications.
