Teesside University provided me with opportunities in life that I had never even considered. It's hard to think of a reason not to study here.
Since completing my degree doors have opened for me - not simply because I have that badge, but because of the graduate skills I have gained.
This course allowed me to apply all the modules I have studied to an array of different sports, which gives me the skills to be more employable.
