I decided to return to education after ten years
Fern Burrage is an MSc Sports Coaching and Performance graduate. She returned to University to further her knowledge, to challenge herself and to progress.
What made you decide to return to education?
I decided to return to education after 10 years as I wanted to further extend my knowledge. I was working within football at the time and was ready for my next challenge and progression. I attended an open evening and knew the course would support me in my career progression. I continued to work full time and managed to study around work and family life.
Tell us about the location of the University and what you like most about it?
The location was accessible, inspiring and it was great to share spaces with like-minded individuals.
Which support services have you accessed, and how have they helped you?
Both the library services and students services were helpful. I hadn't studied for a long time and had a lot of catching up to do. They were very supportive and happy to answer any questions I had.
Where have you lived, and how did you find it?
I remained at home for the duration of my course and continued to work full time while studying.
How was the open evening you attended?
It was a really useful event. It allowed me to talk directly to course tutors and gain an understanding of the course.
