Alumni visit Applied Sport students

Posted on

Last Wednesday 17 former Long Road Sports students came back to Long Road to talk to all of the current Year 1 Applied Sport students. All the visiting Alumni had graduated from Long Road within the last 4 -5 years and have gone on to studying exciting university degrees, apprenticeships and even set up their own businesses! The Alumni sat in groups of 4 or 5 and spoke to over 20 students at a time for 5 minutes in a carousel based format. They offered advice on how to be successful on the course; informed them what they’d gone on to do after leaving college; the best routes into different careers and answered any questions the current students had. All of our Alumni spoke very openly about themselves which the current students responded to very well and it was evident that they were inspired by what they had heard.
