Kian started studying Sport with us at Level 1, gradually progressing through the levels until he ended up on the HND (Higher National Diploma) in Sport and Exercise Science. This Level 5 qualification is equivalent to the second year of a Bachelor’s degree.
Kian has worked so hard to get where he has, and so he was the obvious choice to be the Higher Education Student of the Year. Kian is hoping to pursue a career in Sport, and on completion of his HND in Sport and Exercise Science, has been accepted on to the final year of the BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science course at the University of South Wales.
We caught up with Kian to ask about his time at College.
