VU has an outstanding reputation in the sports industry and I had heard about the industry connections and opportunities that are provided for students. Cementing my current position at Basketball ACT has given me the opportunity to work within the industry that I have a passion for and put the attributes I gained during my studies into practice.Shaun Hargreaves
