Study at VU

Keeping her goals high

Hockeyroos Goalkeeper, Ashlee Wells, credits VU’s workplace learning initiatives and industry connections for her career success in the sports industry.

“Victoria University’s Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Management stood out from similar courses at other Universities because it offered hands-on activities and real life learning experiences.

From the very first year of my course I was given opportunities to work on real life projects. As part of my degree I completely two work placements, with Coach Approach and Hockey Victoria, which helped me to get a feel of how things were done in the workforce and how the principles learnt in my degree were implemented.

After I completed my placement at Hockey Victoria I was offered a full time role at the organisation!

I am currently a full time athlete in the Hockeyroos. I plan on returning to the sport and recreation industry after my hockey career is over.”
