Despite looking at lots of different universities, Kasom realised he wanted to stay close to home, his family and be able to continue his semi-professional contract with Barnoldswick FC.
Eager to find something that would fit around football training and his part-time job in retail, Kasom toured the BCUC campus and chatted to Lecturers within the School of Sport, Fitness and Public Services.
Impressed with BCUC’s brand new sport complex, Elite Athlete Programme and support from former professional coaches and sports scientists, Kasom enrolled on the BSc Sport & Exercise programme and hasn’t looked back since.
Kasom was delighted to find that studying at BCUC was much more flexible than he imagined. With small classes and 1:1 support, Kasom has been able to personalise his own learning journey and, as a result, his confidence has grown immeasurably.
Thrilled to have found his feet after the disappointment of not being able to play football professionally, Kasom has discovered a new passion and is excited to step forward into his next chapter.
