Hear from our Fastrack students

Fastrack alumni and BSc (Hons) Business & Management with Leisure & Tourism student, Michelle Hopwood

Michelle Hopwood is a Fastrack Alumni in her third year studying BSc (Hons) Business & Management with Leisure & Tourism.

The Fastrack course is something I would highly recommend. The course hours were 10am-3pm with a one hour lunch break. The course is planned to not only give you an understanding of what your degree topic will be like but it provides you will all the academic skills needed to hit the ground running when you start your degree. The topics covered include things like academic writing, referencing, presentations, reflections and time management. You are assessed through essays, presentations and reports up to 1000 or 1500 words. When you begin thought they’re about 100 words. You are taught by academic staff who will teach on your degree so it’s great to get to know them before degree begins. The middle few weeks are busy but if I can do it anyone can. The Fastrack team are really supportive and there are specific activities for Fastrack students like free film viewings on campus and access to the sports centre.
