Student Testimonials

The S+C course is challenging but highly rewarding. Andy is highly knowledgeable and has provided an excellent insight into the practical application of strength and conditioning. The practical sessions are interesting, informative and great for skill development. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the courses I have completed with Uni Learning and will definitely use them again.

Rachel Taggart S&C Graduate

“The blended learning method of completing courses is a great way to cover things at your own pace. If you already have a job and want to balance qualifications, you can jump in and out of the work you submit as part of your course, which makes things really easy to keep on top of.”

Ethan Savage S&C Graduate

"I really liked doing the PT Diploma with Uni learning. Excellent material to study with, amazing support from the head office to the tutor team.
