Leadership in Sport

The MA Leadership in Sport has been a fantastic learning journey for myself.

I initially saw the programme as an opportunity to remain current and up to date with the latest subject knowledge in a comprehensive way, whilst ensuring that I was competitive for future employment opportunities within the sporting industry.

Having a young family and working full time, the blended learning delivery of the course was ideal for me and allowed me to continue working whilst completing my studies alongside in a manageable way.

I really enjoyed attending the three-day blocks and found the tutors were engaging and knowledgeable, drawing upon there own industry experiences.

I also had insightful and interesting discussions with other students who all brought their own experiences and views from roles across the industry.

I found the online platform easy and flexible to use and allowed me to work at my own pace and refer back to whenever I needed.

I found the assessments extremely relevant and I was able to apply my own experiences and responsibilities of my professional role into the assessments.

I feel that the course has not only provided benefits for me personally but also contributed to my professional career.

I was keen to enhance my leadership knowledge and skills and found the Strategic leadership and mentoring modules supported my line managing responsibilities and provided me with insight into best practice and approaches to achieving success.

I would highly recommend USW and in particular the MA Leadership programme.
