‘It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up’

Course: Paramedic Science

Sport: Netball

The balance between studying and personal time is so important, don’t let the University workload force you to stop doing an activity that you love. Exercise and friendships are vital for the best Uni experience


Bilal Ijaz, 21

‘Stop waiting for things to happen, go out and make it them happen’

I have been actively part of badminton, which indeed changed my way towards everything University has to offer. It’s just not about sports, it makes you meet new people and learn something new every day.

Staying active in University is an important part of student life, that’s what I believe because being an international student I was exposed to a completely new system and culture but interacting with different students, taking part in some volunteering actives made me feel just like home.


Tia Walby, 19

‘You miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take’

Course: Events Management
Sport: Women’s Football
Exercise can take so many forms, find one that suits you and run with it. Try new things, set new goals but most importantly, step outside your comfort zone and have fun!
