Julia joins us from Brazil and studies Sport Business and Innovation.

Why did you choose to study at Loughborough University London?

I have chosen to study Sport Business and Innovation MSc at Loughborough University London because, besides being awarded as University of the year for Times Good Guide in 2014, Loughborough University was also generously co-funding a number of awards for applicants from Brazil who wish to study degrees in Sport Management (Olympics legacy).

What attracted you to the programme?

What really caught my attention to the programme was the innovative approach, which strongly relates to my area of interest, study, and work.

List at least one thing you wish you knew about Loughborough University London before arriving on campus.

I believe we received good and important information before the arrival, but if we could receive the timetable earlier it would be better to make plans about living abroad.

Describe Enterprise Through the Curriculum in your own words.

It is been great to have their support so far, I believe this module is a differential for Loughborough University London because we can have a practical view of what to expect when we graduate from University and enter the jobs market.

Do you have any advice for students moving to London?

Be open to diversity, it will be a great experience meeting so many people from all around the world.

Do you take part in any extra-curricular activities on campus or in the local area?

Yes, I play football with other students every Tuesday. Also, I am interested in starting a new language programme this semester.

Where are the best places to explore on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park?

I love to go for a running in the park and chill there when it’s sunny. Also, it is good to have a huge shopping centre (Westfield) close by with anything you may need.

Do you have any advice to prepare students for the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate study?

I believe postgraduate studies are when your academic life truly starts. You will enjoy some part of it, but not all the time and when it happens, remember where you want to be in a few years, trust in your path and just keep going, it will be worth it!

What support is available at Loughborough University London?

There are several support services at Loughborough University London, it depends on what you are need. For example, you have LSU London and student services for academic and social issues, English support for language improvement, and library support for academic writing.
