“The best thing about the Diploma programme is its athlete-friendly structure. Doing one module at a time for four afternoons in a week gave me the time and space to continue high intensity sport training that put me in good shape to participate at major games such as the 2018 Youth Olympic Games and 2019 SEA Games. The curriculum structure and the strong academic support for student-athletes, also allowed me to gain the skills and knowledge that I needed to prepare for my future. Now, I am ready to take on the world!”
