Sport student achieves uni goal with highest grades

5 Sep 2017

A Cornish sports student has achieved his goal of studying sports at university having netted the highest possible grade.

Kyran Coulls, 22, from Falmouth is going to Southampton University to study Sport and Exercise Therapy after getting an impressive triple distinction star.

“I’m excited to go to University, with the dream goal of being a sports therapist for a professional team,” Kyran said.

“My favourite sport is football, so to one day be a sports therapist for a team in the premier league would be amazing.”

He added that he was keen to explore new elements of sports as “there are so many different aspects, which people don’t realise”.

“When I did anatomy and physiology in the first year and physiology and fitness, in the second, I became really interested in how the body works,” he continued.

“Then in the second year we did sports injury and sports massage and this made me decide that I wanted go on to do sports therapy  at university.”

Philip Toy, Lecturer on the Sport Course said he was delighted the “great news for Kyran and he is truly deserving”.

“Kryan’s choice to continue to university to study sports therapy is just one path that you can take after completing a sports course,” he continued.

“Many of our students go on to work in the fitness industry in England and across the world whilst other specialise in their preferred subjects.”

Kyran said he chose Cornwall College because he did his youth module coaching badge with Dan Inch, one of the tutors.

“He spoke really highly of the course at Cornwall College, so I looked into it as it was more one-on-one teaching and more focussed, which is how I work best. You build up a really good relationship with the tutors. They cover everything surrounding sport so it gives you a better idea of what you want to specialise in.”
