Thanks to my studies, I have the confidence and knowledge to do this effectively.

HND Fitness, Health and Exercise

Prior to starting the HND, Eva was working as a freelance fitness instructor and had already completed the HNC at Perth, but decided further study onto the HND would advance her career.

“The course was fantastic and the subjects were all relevant to what I wanted to do in the future. I really enjoyed our research project, which involved working directly with a client to assess their current fitness levels, set goals and deliver a 6-12 week fitness programme.

We also worked with ‘special populations’ such as children, older adults and disabled clients, experience which proved invaluable to my career as I was successful in applying for the role of Fitness Coordinator at Live Active Leisure in Perth, which requires working with these special client groups regularly - thanks to my studies, I have the confidence and knowledge to do this effectively.

The student experience at Perth College UHI will be vastly improved by the new Academy of Sport and Wellbeing. Students who are planning to study courses such Fitness, Health and Exercise and develop a career in this field, will have the opportunity not only to familiarise themselves with a fitness environment but also to dedicate time on their own physical fitness and wellbeing. I plan to make the most of these opportunities and continue studying part-time on the BSc Sport and Fitness degree.”
