(Student Profile)

Matthew Fitzpatrick

3168.jpg "I studied podiatric medicine as my undergraduate degree and wanted to expand my area of particular interest, Sports Science, at an early stage in my career. The Sports and Exercise Science course offered at London Metropolitan University seemed to be perfectly tailored to my needs. I gained a lot from the diversity of the teaching formats, the seminars and laboratory classes. The focus on athletes and on practical applications of the theory we were learning was immensely beneficial – having the opportunity to use our newly acquired skills meant that the learning process was much easier. The course has both opened my eyes and increased my career prospects no end, as it shows to both future employers and myself the extra depth of knowledge I have gained in this ever-growing field of study."
