The Industrial Attachment programme offered at IMSC has been beneficial to my education. It has been an eye-opening experience as I gain exposure and insights to the sports industry. As a Sports Therapist Assistant at Sports Relief Therapy Clinic, I'm able to apply the sports science knowledge learnt in class which enabled me to better prescribe strengthening exercises and provide sports nutritional advice to the patients.
The Business & Retail Management Diploma taught me the sound fundamentals of running a business with its balanced modules. The real-life encounters shared by the lecturers, as well as the study visits, allowed us to witness first-hand, new retail concepts and trends that made teaching very insightful. Most of all, I would like to thank the college for fulfilling my passion for soccer that is combined with retail business! I couldn't be happier when I was selected for an Industrial Attachment at a top local sports chain.
I have a strong passion for sports since young. The Diploma in Sports Science & Management have provided me with the opportunity to increase my sports knowledge which is very useful for my future. Besides being interested in the theory behind sport, I am also keen to learn about the sports industry too! I particularly enjoyed studying moduless such as Strength & Conditioning, Sports Psychology and Nutrition. These modules are so interesting that it sparked my interest in wanting to study more in-depth in the future! I got to learn many new skills, made new friends and also meet people who were helpful in guiding my education.
The college experience at IMSC is a time of significant change for us international students as it is a stepping stone to the next stage of our lives. It is a time where most students are developing to become better and independent individuals. Amid all these challenges, the IMSC's staff and lecturers helped to open my mind and directed me towards reaching my personal goals.
With my busy schedule, the arrangement for online lectures provided me with flexible time management. I still get freedom over my schedule which allows me to pursue sports, get educated and have adequate rest. I'm taking this Diploma as I believe that as a sportsman, it is critical to be educated with appropriate knowledge and skills. Currently, I have interest in being a coach or a sports marketer so it's essential to be trained for the correct area for my future.

My study experience here at IMSC was fascinating! It allowed me to develop in-depth knowledge and have a new perspective on Singapore's business and retail management which I can apply back to India. I also enjoyed the open-minded and rich interaction with my classmates and the lecturers during my time here. The knowledge acquired can also be readily used in my job.
I chose to pursue the private education route as I wanted to study relevant modules direct to the industry and upgrade myself. Upon completing the diploma, I’m currently working full-time at Decathlon Singapore as an Omnichannel Sports Advisor and I can apply the knowledge in my current working life. I’m glad I chose IMSC to further my education.
There were many times where I had to miss class due to overseas training camps and competitions but the school was really supportive. The staff would update me on what was happening in class and my lectureres would take the extra time to teach what I had missed out so that I wouldn't fall behind. With such great support, I was able to focus on my sport while maintaining a good academic record.
IMSC Lecturers are knowledgeable, and I was able to to apply what I have learnt in class such as Human Anatomy, Nutrition and Strength and Conditioning to my job as a Fitness Trainer. One of my favourite memories include the field trip to Sports Stadium as we can picture what we have learnt in class to real life settings.
As an international student, I was a stranger when I first arrived in Singapore. With the relentless support and help from our devoted teachers, I was able to adapt to the new environment. The teachers' guidance and mentoring motivated me to work harder for my future. Moreover, the college provides me with the opportunities to promote creativity and forging bonds between classmates through activities and school events. The knowledge I gained here goes far beyond classroom learning and can be applied to my life later on.
The school has played a tremendouys role in supporting my academic pursuit. Given my commitments, one high key from either work, school or competition was bound to clash but the school provided me with the utmost support by helping me to defer my exams during crucial times, that helped me maintain my grades in school. The school strongly supports sporting excellence and will without a doubt provide time-off for training and major competition for student-athletes. For that, I am ever grateful to the school and the staff through my time here.
The environment at IMSC is very hospitable and encouraging. With their wealth of experience, the academic lecturers are able to conduct the class in a very engaging and stimulating manner. I'm delighted and proud to be part of IMSC and am looking forward to the industrial attachment where I can obtain first-hand experience in the relevant industry.

I was offered to pursue the Sports Science & Management Diploma with IMSC and decide whether I like it and would want to pursue it as my degree course. I found most of the modules interesting and useful to me. Psychology and Human Anatomy are modules that I had interest in thus the information I learnt about really stayed with me.
