Why did you choose this course?

I wasn’t sure of what I wanted to study, but I had thoughts of working towards a future in the sport industry.

What attracted you to Loughborough University?

I had a couple of friends who were doing sport science in Loughborough and they were enjoying their course of study. The sport science programme is also one of the best in the UK.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

I enjoy the balance of science and management modules, which gives me the best of both worlds.

What do you think of the teaching quality?

Lecturers are knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. They also make classes interesting and engaging.

Do you have a favourite module?

I liked the Advanced Sport Management module in my final year, as the lecturer was enthusiastic and entertaining. We watched videos and had interesting coursework topics. It felt great learning something while at the same time enjoying it.

What support have you had from the department?

I have had support from my personal tutor who helped me get through the difficult times like when I first came over feeling lost and uncomfortable in a new environment.

Describe a typical day on your course

I go for my classes in the morning, have lunch with a couple of friends during the break and then go for the evening classes. Thereafter I head to the HIPAC (Indoor track) for pole vaulting training or conditioning.

What do you hope to do when you graduate?

I am still exploring my options for a sport industry career but everything I’ve learnt in Loughborough University will provide a good head start for a bright future in the sport industry.

What would you say to someone considering studying your course?

Sport Science with Management is the way to go if you’re unsure of what you want to go into (business or sport), or simply if you would like the best of both worlds.

What do you think of the social atmosphere on campus?

I was the Vice-President of the Malaysian-Singapore Society and am currently the Treasurer of the Athletics Team. I’ve had good experiences with many students and staff on campus and they complete and add meaning to my overseas study experience.

What do you enjoy most about being a LU student?

Being part of a prestigious university with the most amazing sport facilities.

What do you find inspiring about Loughborough University?

I get to sit in class and train with professional athletes and help out in a major event like Loughborough International Athletics with international athletes competing on campus. To top it all off, the environment in Loughborough University is just incredible.
