    So basically I did my A Levels last year and never applied for Uni as I didnt think it was for me however all my friends have been saying its been sick and they've enjoyed every moment, while ive been working 7 days a week trying to make a living.

    Anyways… my (****ty) results was NVQ Football Level 2, B in PE and 2 E's in Bio + Business Studies. What I wish to study is something along the lines of personal training + fitness.

    So my first nooby question is:

    1)What courses is there for a person who wants to be a personal trainer/ aspires to run their own gym?

    2)What universities do any of you know which are good for my needs (but aren't out of my league due to my ****e results e.g. loughborough, brunel etc)

    3)Does said university have good social/night life side

    More questions will come I just can't seem to think straight having just finished work

    Potentially something like Sports Management or Sports Leadership and Development?

    I've attached links to whatuni, where you can organise the courses by UCAS tariff/grades, so you can have a look and see if you could apply for any next year.

    You could apply to SOuthampton Solent for Fitness management and personal trianing with a foundation year. You would only need 80 ucas points then adn they are said to have great nightlife there. Its the only uni to do an actual personal training course

    If you look at the side it gives you different options for the course. One of them is 4 year with a sports, event and tourism fofoundatio year
