“Having built good relationships with the staff, it was the obvious choice to continue my studies at UWS,” says Michael. “The staff are all very much active in their respective fields and this challenges us as students to keep up with the best and latest practices.”
Michael also makes special mention of the facilities at the University’s new £110 million Lanarkshire Campus as helping prepare him for his career. “The campus in Lanarkshire is world class. The facilities and the learning spaces make it a really enjoyable place to come and work each day and brings the best out in you when studying.”
The MSc Sport Coaching is available on a full-time or part-time basis at UWS and Michael chose to take up the part-time option while also developing his career in a performance analysis role, initially at Motherwell FC before making the recent move to Rangers FC. This allows him to take his learning into the workplace throughout his studies and also bring his own experiences from the workplace into the classroom. It is the perfect combination!
