Can you describe the best thing about your course and why?
The things I enjoyed most about Sports Marketing is that the course separates the different areas of marketing into modules. For example, I had the opportunity to study Finance, Event Management, Sport Analytics, Sport Sponsorship, etc.
I also had the opportunity to select a Business Plan, Dissertation or Consultancy Project for my Major Independent Study project.
Have you used any Leeds Beckett course facilities, or other facilities such as the library, gym, student computer space?
The library is the perfect second home for finishing assignments or studying for exams, it is the best resource the university provides to concentrate and work.
The gyms on both campuses are excellent with lots of equipment and very friendly staff.
What advice would you give to someone from your country thinking of studying or currently studying in the UK?
Get yourself out there and join as many events and meet ups as possible. There is a huge world out there and meeting people from all over the world will open your eyes and inspire you to try different things and start new life adventures.
