Sports Management MSc

I always consider the world as my playground…

After studying in The Netherlands and Austria I applied for my MSc Sports Management at the University of Worcester. I chose the University of Worcester, simply because it felt good. This feeling developed during the correspondence after showing my interest in the MSc and is still here today. Although I have lived in many countries, I immediately felt at home. I truly like the open friendly attitude and at the same time skilful expertise of the staff. The University offers you so many opportunities to develop yourself, that you almost feel obliged to make the most of it. After only a few weeks I got an interesting job, providing me with relevant working experience in my chosen field.

I joined a student club and got to appreciate the British way of life. Although you have Birmingham around the corner and a lot of airports nearby, Worcester has more than enough to offer. On one side the city of Worcester is chic, packed with cool shops, extremely clean and has lots of sociable places. On the other side Worcester offers a quiet, green and pleasant countryside.

Now the world is my playground with Worcester in the centre.
