Kevin's story

With a degree in Dentistry from Cork under his belt, Kevin's passion for sport came to the fore and he is now studying for a Masters in Sport Coaching at LJMU.

"Sport has always been a real passion for me, a hobby I love. I have been involved in coaching for some years now but decided I wanted to push on and improve my performance in this area. My friends spoke very highly about LJMU and, when it came to looking where to study Sport Coaching, I discovered that John Moores really was one of the best.

From the outset I was impressed by the place. The lecturers I contacted were really friendly and welcoming. They answered the questions I needed to ask to make sure that John Moores was the right place for me.

The course has been really eye-opening. I have learned so much and now have a scientific background to my coaching practice. I know how to analyse what I do, how to find the best interventions and how to get the most out of the sportspeople I am coaching.

Masters study is tough and challenging but I have really enjoyed working with my fellow students. I think the electronic resources we have access to are fantastic and, as they are so accessible, I can work when I choose. Being able to fit your studies around your life really takes the pressure off you as a student. It also helps being in a city that is so easy to call home. This is a place where people bond really well, there's always lots to do and the great transport links mean you can travel around easily."
