Combining her love for the industry and her passion for sports, in particular football, Caroline chose to study Sports Journalism at UCLan due to the high standard and reputation of the course.

Caroline’s greatest achievement since graduating from University has been receiving her permanent contract at Manchester City Football Club where she was the first official journalist for the Women’s Team. She also writes for the First Men’s Team, the Elite Development Squad and the Under-18s side.

Reflecting on her time at University, Caroline says: “I could never have achieved my dream without the Sports Journalism course at UCLan, particularly without the help of the lecturers.”
