Current student, International student

My decision to pursue an MSc in Sport Management at Loughborough University was rooted in its distinguished reputation as a leader in sports education.

Loughborough's long-standing commitment to excellence, coupled with its extensive network of industry connections, made it the natural choice for advancing my career aspirations in the dynamic and competitive field of sports management.

The University's track record of producing successful graduates in the sports industry solidified my confidence in choosing Loughborough as my academic home.

Throughout my studies, I have found the multidisciplinary approach of the degree programme to be incredibly beneficial.

The curriculum encompasses a broad range of subjects, from sports marketing and finance to strategic management, providing a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of the sports industry.

This holistic approach has equipped me with a diverse skill set essential for addressing the multifaceted challenges and opportunities within the sports management landscape.

The academic support and expertise available at Loughborough University has played a pivotal role in my academic journey. The faculty members possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in their respective fields and are deeply committed to nurturing the intellectual growth and professional development of their students.

Their accessibility, willingness to provide guidance, and constructive feedback have been instrumental in refining my critical thinking skills, enhancing my academic performance, and preparing me for the rigours of the sports management industry.

As an international student, transitioning to a British university initially presented some challenges, but Loughborough's supportive and inclusive community made the process remarkably smooth. From the moment I arrived on campus, I was welcomed with open arms and provided with comprehensive support services tailored to the needs of international students. Orientation programmes, cultural events, and dedicated international student advisors ensured that I felt valued, supported, and empowered to thrive in my academic pursuits.


BUCS Big Wednesday 2024 is a tournament organised by BUCS, where athletes from various universities and colleges from all over the UK compete for the championship. I volunteered for the event as it gave me a hands-on experience in the world of sports event management, especially for a mega event like BUCS.

I volunteered as the Event Assistant at the BUCS Big Wednesday 2024 for the Men’s and Women’s BUCS Football Championships. The experience gave me an opportunity to understand the behind-the-scenes of organising such a huge event.

Apart from my academic experience, I have been an active volunteer for Loughborough Sport where I have volunteered for the rugby, netball, indoor athletics, football and hockey games through the Coach and Volunteering Academy (CVA).

Following my graduation, I aspire to break a leg in the football business and marketing field. Currently as the Business Development Manager of Ellistown Football Club, a local club based in Leicestershire, I am equipping myself with adequate knowledge to flourish in this field.

For this, Loughborough has been extremely helpful due to the connections, seminars, lectures, events, and career fairs, where I got the chance to understand the sport industry in depth.

My recommendation to prospective students considering enrolling in Loughborough University's Sport Management programme is to take advantage of every opportunity for growth, learning, and personal development. 

Embrace the curriculum's interdisciplinary nature, interact actively with instructors and classmates, and take advantage of the extensive resources and support services offered at Loughborough. 

Whether it's participating in extracurricular activities, pursuing internships, or networking with industry professionals, each experience will help you advance your academic and professional goals by providing you with the skills, knowledge, and networks you need to thrive in the dynamic and rewarding field of sports management.
