“I chose to study this subject because I enjoy sport and also enjoy learning about the body, the effects of sport in society and the history of sports, such as football. I like the fact that you are given enough time to complete the assignments and are also allowed to revisit work.

The positive feedback I receive from tutors also helps me to enjoy the subject. When I leave College, I would like to go to university to study Sport and Exercise Psychology and the hopefully go on to working with the public.”
