My name is Christelle Madré. I am a sports adept and I have successfully found a course at the University of Technology of Mauritius that suited my ambitions as coach and an upcoming physical educator. am a third-year student at the University of Technology of Mauritius. I followed the Diploma in Sports Training, Coaching and Exercise (DSTCE) course and I am actually completing my BSc.(Hons) Sports Coaching (Top-Up)course.
Being the first batch of the DSTCE in 2018 and BSC in 2021, we had to face some slight difficulties and adjustments regarding the courses. Covid-19 and online classes were some of the adjustments we had to make. Practical sessions were more difficult to organize due to sanitary measures.
Luckily, we had some extraordinary lecturers, mentors, and coordinators: Dr. Jhoty Somanah Bhugowandeen, program coordinator of the first DSTCE batch in 2018, and Dr.Manish Putteeraj, program coordinator of the first BSC batch in 2021. During these three years, all the lecturers were very responsive and tried their best to manage a sports class of approx. 20-30 different persons,with everyone’s unique abilities, beliefs, and ways of doing; no man was left behind.
The UTM Administration staffs were also very responsive, either through emails, calls, or on the premises. Regular emails are sent by the Administration members to inform students about ongoing events, competitions, or any information which pertains to students. The UTM Student Union were always keen to help students with any issues we might have encountered during our university years, ranging from personal issues or university issues.
If I had to choose again, I will surely choose UTM once more for the quality education provided there. From face-to-face classes to online classes, and practical sessions, the experience was always worth it. Thanks to the good supervision of the lecturers and program coordinators.
