“It was not easy at all to make the decision to study Physical Activity and Sport Sciences. I had lots of doubts because I didn’t know if it was the right degree for me, but today, almost about to finish my second year at the UCAM, I realize and I am totally convinced that it was the right decision.

For me, sport is an essential part of my life and it helps me day by day not only to keep fit or compete, but also to run away from problems and to take a break.

Without any doubt, what led me to choose this degree, and particularly the UCAM, was that there is no better feeling for yourself than turning your passion into your work. This is possible thanks to an excellent group of professors both professionally and personally, great facilities such as the UCAM SPORTS CENTER and above all, a pleasant atmosphere created by the whole University.”
