David's story

With an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Geography and a Masters in Sport and Exercise Psychology, David decided to study for a Professional Doctorate in Sport and Exercise Psychology.

The Professional Doctorate offers the best of both worlds: applied experience and research supervision. It is very unusual being able to do something so practical at PhD level.

I work as a coordinator of a Sport Scholarship scheme and Football Development officer in Ireland and I’ve really appreciated the flexibility of LJMU staff in terms of enabling me to do what I need both from a work and from a study point of view. There is quite a lot of travelling involved for me but tutors are always more than happy to catch up with me via Skype if I can’t attend one of the sessions in person.

When it comes to Liverpool itself, I lived here for a year whilst I was doing my Masters and simply loved it. It’s a great place to socialise and make friends and I felt very much at home.”
