Student stories 

With this subject becoming popular in the fitness industry and the University being one of the very few places to offer this at degree level, Divya couldn’t be any happier with her choice. Over her course, she has gained far more than just the knowledge she needs to fulfil her dream of becoming a fully-qualified strength and conditioning coach.

“I have had an abundance of opportunities, including working with large population groups, athletes and teams from all different sports, and in labs,” said Divya. “The lecturers always advise me on the steps I need to take. University College Birmingham encourages you to undertake work experience alongside your degree as it enhances your experience, knowledge and is great for CV building. What is also great is that they have a lot of industry contacts.”
