Sports Science degree graduate David Poff gives his insight
We are delighted to share a snippet from David Poff, Graduate and former Leinster academy player
What’s been a core highlight for David whilst studying his sports degree at Portobello Institute has been the full support system that is in place for learners.
For David support at degree level was especially important for him dedicating himself to both his studies and competing a competitive level in sport.
“Playing competitive sport whilst at college can be challenging but as a student at Portobello Institute while playing competitively is easier than in most colleges”.
David feels that the tutors know and understand that a lot of their degree student are also involved in sport and “they take a genuine interest in you”.
“At Portobello the tutors really want to see you succeed and offer the support so that nobody is afraid to ask questions in class. If you feel too shy or embarrassed to ask for help you can arrange to send an email, or take time after class, they are always on your side and want you to do the best you can!”
