Mateusz Sroka

BSc (Hons) Sports and Exercise Science Undergraduate

Mateusz Sroka, who is originally from Poland, is one of 14 Leeds Beckett first year students to be selected for the University’s annual Bright Futures Scholarships.

Mateusz, aged 18, and a former pupil of Bishop Thomas Grant School Sixth Form, said he was delighted to receive the scholarship and that he would spend the funding on textbooks and save the rest for his second year at university when he plans to study abroad. He commented: “I’m very ambitious and my goal is to achieve a first-class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science. Taking the opportunity of doing a study abroad programme will also help me gain an international perspective in my subject area and will ensure my CV stands out to potential future employers.”
