Ian Isham

Studied: BA (Hons) Sports Management and Rugby Studies
Role: Community Rugby Coach at London Wasps Rugby Club

From earning my stripes to the field of dreams...

London Wasps is an English professional rugby union team. Based at Adams Park in Buckinghamshire, they've won at least one of each of the major European competitions or knockout tournaments in the past decade.

"My degree from Bucks has certainly given me a lot of background knowledge of coaching and has helped with my delivery. It gave me the chance to learn about the theories and practical side of delivering coaching sessions.

"Apart from the degree itself, it gave me the experience and the confidence to actually go out there and coach. It has also helped boost my CV by giving it more depth, which has made getting a job a lot easier.     

"For me, the best thing about Bucks was the partnerships it had with organisations like the London Wasps and the Rugby Football Union, which allowed me to experience first-hand the things we talked about in our lectures, as well as opened up a lot of networking opportunities.

"To anyone interested in studying at Bucks, I'd say that it'll give you a great opportunity to not only learn about the theory, but also the practical applications of it in the workplace. For me, it was fun, had the right balance, and gave me the confidence to actually go out there and work in the industry."
