What will I learn?

I progressed from Level 3 Adventure Sports at South Devon College through to the Adventure Leadership foundation degree at University Centre South Devon. I had a very large interest in the outdoors before starting college, and when seeing the course that was available, I felt like it was a great opportunity to study something I enjoy and I’m passionate about, whilst still learning. The high practical content of the course was also a big deciding factor. There were also many trips, expeditions and adventurous activities to take part in as part of the course. I have made many friends and the employment opportunities that I have been able to access has allowed me to put all of my training into practice.Olivia Harrison
