Progression to Ulster University made possible for Jason after completing his studies at Monaghan Institute

Jason McHugh, QQI Level 6 Advanced Health, Fitness and Sports Performance graduate of Monaghan Institute, reflects on his experience studying in MI and his journey to Ulster University.

“I completed the Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Health, Fitness and Sports Performance in Monaghan Institute after successfully completing the Level 5 Sports course. Some of the L6 modules were similar to L5, but more advanced, such as Exercise & Fitness and Word Processing. New modules were also introduced such as Sports Industry Practice, Sports Psychology and Business Management.

During the Level 6 course I applied through UCAS to different universities in the UK. I was lucky to be accepted into numerous different courses and today I am a 3rd Year student in Ulster University. Many of the modules from Monaghan Institute have helped me with university studies such as Psychology and Sports Coaching.”

Progression Opportunities: Sports programmes at Monaghan Institute provide opportunities to progress onto many careers in this area including PE Teaching, Personal Training & Coaching, Youth & Community Work and Sports Retail.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish Jason all the best with his continued studies and future career. If you are interested in applying for the Sport Courses, or any of the other courses in Monaghan Institute, applications are currently open. Please visit to browse courses and apply!
