Monika Lindstrom from Stockholm, Sweden
Sports Therapy BSc (Hons)
My name is Monika Lindstrom. I’m from Stockholm, Sweden.
The course I’m studying at the University of Worcester is called sports therapy and rehabilitation. I have been working as a beauty therapist for the past 3 years and felt that I wanted to broaden my horizons and develop more as an individual. The demand on sports therapy is growing rapidly, especially in the UK and since I like to help people feel better, this course was ideal for me. I’m also working part time as a beautician whist doing my course which is something to think about if extra money is needed.
I chose the University of Worcester because it’s got a good reputation and very good sports facilities. There are also several sports societies to join if you like to focus on something other than studying.
The university itself is just the right size and has got a friendly atmosphere. The help and support has been excellent from the University. Whenever I have felt a bit lost or wanted to have a chat to my teachers, there is always someone there to guide you.
The City of Worcester is pretty, typically English with pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. Its location provides close distance to Birmingham (excellent for shopping), the beautiful Malvern Hills and other areas.
In my spare time I like to attend the gym, go to the cinema and spend time with my friends
