Why did you choose to study at Loughborough University London?

I chose Loughborough University London for two reasons. The first reason was the reputation the University has in Sports and the second was the city. Being able to study what I love in London and at the best University, made it an easy choice for me.

My undergraduate degree was in Marketing, so I already have some experience in the Business aspect. Being able to combine Business and Sports is what I have always wanted.
