Sarah Davies:

My daughter's interested in sports science and exercise science. We went to the general information sessions, spoke to a couple of fabulous people about the courses and have just done a tour around all the facilities and then just had a wander around the campus to get a general feel for the place.

VU IS A GREAT CHOICE FOR YOUR CHILD. WE OFFER THE LATEST INDUSTRY-RELATED CURRICULUM AND WORLD-CLASS FACILITIES PLUS ACCESS TO OVER 4000 HIGH-PROFILE INDUSTRY CONNECTIONS.

 

Sarah Davies:

We're really impressed the facilities are exceptional but then that's what VU’s reputation is around the sports science, so we were expecting something pretty schmiko and it was just fabulous, really impressive.

What my children want to do when they leave school is really up to them so we figure that our job is just to support them in finding out what the choices are and helping them make the right choice for them. So, if tertiary study is what they want then very happy to support that.

The one of the things that we have been really impressed with today is how incredibly helpful and friendly and open the staff have been, in particular the course leaders, the academics running the programs and we've come away with these people's mobile numbers and email addresses and they’ve just said contact us if you've got any questions and I just think that's quite extraordinary I think that's fantastic.

If this is what she wants then I would be absolutely delighted if she came here. I think she'd really enjoy it.
