Student Profile(s)

Paul Bright

Why did you choose the University of Gloucestershire for your postgraduate study?
I heard the sports therapy courses at Gloucestershire University are without question the market leader within a 75 mile travelling distance from Gloucester. Also, that Dr Pfeifer is an exceptional lecturer and course lead. In sporting circles, I have heard the university produces the strongest therapists, hence I chose to study here over local competitors.

What are the lecturers like on your course? How do you benefit from their experience and expertise?
Brilliant. Dr Pfeifer is outstanding, his experience from the USA provides students with a much more in-depth teaching for the subject.

What do you intend to do after you graduate?
I am a teacher already but have started as a therapist at Cinderford Town FC part time. Which is great fun.
