Erin Cooper

Bachelor of Sport and Leisure Studies (BSpLS)

For a sports buff like Erin, Waikato University was the ideal study choice.

"Hamilton hosts some world-class sporting events and is close to mountains and beaches - there's never a dull weekend," she says.

Erin chose her degree because she's always loved sport and physical activity and wanted to develop her sporting knowledge through practical and theoretical study.

She hopes to begin her career in the sports marketing industry and eventually have the chance to promote and market top sports teams around New Zealand and the rest of the world.

"I'd also like to continue my involvement in the fitness industry as a fitness instructor, providing energy and determination to those wanting to achieve their fitness goals."

Erin currently works as an instructor at Configure Express taking four classes a week. "Working in a gym has given me the chance to train as a fitness instructor and I can now use those skills all over the world."
