The two main factors behind choosing to studying at ICMS were industry training and the scholarship structure. Industry training was a fundamental aspect to the sports management course and the fact that I got a scholarship with the ability to network and work with the employees acted as a great stepping stone for my career.
Firstly, it offered a variety of pathways, which allowed me to find my feet. Secondly, I love sport so much, and thirdly it was very convenient and offered lots of opportunities
The lecturers shared valuable real life experiences. Overall I had some great lecturers that made me think outside the box. And they were very understanding, especially when I had my computer crash in my last term!
The importance being a scholarship recipient will have on my resume was a motivating factor. I truly believed that I could get one but I was stoked when I achieved my ultimate goal of acheiving two scholarships.
In June 2014, I was selected to work as a Sport and Recreation Attendant at One&Only Hayman Island, which is located south of the Great Barrier Reef. It was a paid position for four months. To read all about James’ industry training experience, click here.
