Student testimonials


Amanda told us “the schedule was very good – I only studied for one full day each week, meaning I could work alongside. It was all very flexible.”

Rebecca commented “St Mary’s is a brilliant teaching University for sport – and that’s what caught my eye initially. I did lot of comparisons, but I didn’t want online classes, I wanted my study to be thorough and in-person.”
