Ben's Hartpury Experience

"Every module of my course provided me with the knowledge to succeed in an environment that was like a professional football club. As a requirement of my course, I had to secure a work placement and the lecturers at Hartpury University supported me fully and helped me gain a placement at PSG Soccer School. I impressed in the coaching sessions I delivered and was offered a paid contract to work with PSG the following summer. Then, after I finished my degree, I was offered the position of assistant coach with the Under-17s. After two successful seasons with them, I took on a similar role with the Under-15s and was then offered the role of sports director."
