Country / region

Victor chose to study Sport Business and Innovation due to Loughborough's number 1 sport ranking.

Prior to studying his master's degree, Victor was studying a BSc in Sport Science between Spain and the US. 

Why did you choose to study at Loughborough University London?

I chose to study at Loughborough University London because it is the number 1 university in the world for sports related subjects, according to QS Ranking 2019. London is also a global city so I thought I would be able to get involved with a wide range of opportunities. 

What do you enjoy the most about your course/ Loughborough University London?

I would say the Collaborative Project module because I was able to work with Chelsea FC on a brief. I was also able to connect with top leaders within the sport business industry. 

I have also enjoyed the Loughborough Enterprise Network that Loughborough University London offers. With this, I have been able to get involved with a number of entrepreneurial events, allowing me to grow my network. 

Describe a day in the life of a postgraduate student on your course

My day consists of going onto campus to attend my lectures and see my friends. I also work on any assignments I have. After spending time on campus and doing university work, I socialise with my friends at Unite Stratford One, do some exercise or go to Westfield for dinner, cinema or shopping. 

How do you like to spend your time away from your studies?

I enjoy attending music events, travelling around the world, playing sport, meeting new people and trying things I have never done before. 

If you could give one piece of advice to a postgraduate student, what would it be?

Be open-minded! Get out of your comfort zone and attend conferences, meet new people and try new things.
