The course fits around my personal commitments perfectly

Getting on really well with my course. I am on the first assignment now and the course fits around my personal commitments perfectly. Solid 5 stars from me. I wanted to study this subject because i find learning about the body and all of the other aspects of sports therapy very interesting. I am hopefully after completing this course going to university for further my studies.
