Student interview

Saqib Dean studied MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology and is now a Sport Psychologist at Malaysian Institute of Sport:

'I was able to work full-time and still complete the MSc given the easy and flexible learning format and interactive online systems (including video lectures and voice notes). The course has a strong focus on the art and nuances of conducting applied work and quality content for topics such as mental health and skill acquisition provide a great insight too. My tutors set the target for my research to be published early on and, with their guidance and support, the thesis was published and set the foundation for the PhD I am completing with Staffordshire University currently.'
