"I've always been a keen sportsman and I wanted to know more about how the body functions and how it can be improved in relation to sport. I chose to study Sports Science at Kingston University because of its location – the area seemed clean, friendly and safe – and the content of the course appealed to me.
"For me, the practical sessions in both physiology and biomechanics have been among the highlights of the degree. The course is very 'hands-on', which is good as it gives you the necessary skills to pursue a career in sport and exercise sciences.
"I have also found the lecturers very approachable, helpful and accessible. I've struggled with scientific writing, but to overcome this, I went to see the relevant lecturers and they helped me endlessly."
