Joe is a 22-year-old student from Liverpool studying Exercise Science at Loughborough College. His journey to this point has been a combination of hard work, determination, and a passion for sports and health.

Starting out as a talented basketball player, Joe attended a top basketball academy in the UK before heading to America on a scholarship to play at the collegiate level. However, after the outbreak of COVID-19, Joe decided to return to the UK and was determined to find a university that offered a combination of world-class education and a supportive sports environment. He found just that at Loughborough College.

“I realised that I can do more with my day than I previously thought”

As a first-generation university student, Joe was eager to further his knowledge in the field of physiotherapy and sports science, which is what led him to study for a degree. The flexible schedule and smaller class sizes at Loughborough College suited his needs and allowed him to connect with his lecturers and receive personalised feedback.

Through his studies, Joe has gained a wealth of knowledge, made valuable connections, and developed his social and sporting abilities. He has also discovered that he is capable of managing his time more effectively, balancing university work with his sport and social life.

After finishing his qualification, Joe has aspirations of playing professional basketball for a few years before continuing on to pursue a physiotherapy master’s degree. He has found the experience at Loughborough College to be good overall, with everything he needs to succeed readily available. He especially appreciates the small class sizes and close relationships with his lecturers, which have helped him to excel academically.

Joe’s Loughborough College experience and example have been a testament to the power of hard work, determination, and the pursuit of one’s passions. With its supportive environment and world-class facilities, Loughborough College is a great place to develop both academically and in sports.
