Student Comment

Profile image

I have studied on the Level 2 Diploma in Sport. We have looked at varied topics linking to sport and performance. My favourite subject was Physical Fitness and Injuries in Sport as we had to take part in a number of injury role play and we had specialist make up the injuries which made these look real.

I really struggled at school but during my time at college I have been given all the help and support I have needed not just from the lecturers but also the additional learning support team.  The time at college I have really matured and find it a place that has suited my learning needs.

As well as the main education programme I have been part of the Academy for Sport Rugby team that it linked with Doncaster Knights. This has brought my game on further than I ever thought it would and because of this I have been selected to play for Yorkshire.
