"ACPE has been great in understanding and being flexible to my needs as a student but also as a full-time athlete living mostly overseas. This is one of the main reasons i chose to study at ACPE because I had heard of the support given to elite athletes. The staff and unit co-ordinators within my faculty and course and have been overly helpful and always given me the best chance to complete all tasks wherever O am in the world. I would definitely recommend ACPE and my course in particular to anyone looking to study but to also have a good balance in life whether personal or sporting, and I am very grateful for having the support of ACPE."
