A two-time European Highland dancing champion hopes to pass on her knowledge of sport having graduated from Robert Gordon University.
Natalie Moir, 21, graduated with a BSc Applied Sport and Exercise Science.
It is the third educational qualification in a few short years for the former Elgin Academy pupil, who completed her degree as part of a 2+2 arrangement, following an HND in Fitness, Health and Exercise.
This took advantage of RGU’s widening access partnership with North East Scotland College (NESCol). Natalie has also achieved a Highland dancing teaching qualification.
She said: “I have always been interested in sport thanks to a lifetime of competing nationally in Highland dancing.
“That’s brought me in contact with many professionals, such as chiropractors, physiotherapists and dance teachers.”
Natalie said the nature of the course was what prompted her to apply.
She said she had benefited from the theory element as well as work placements.
She said: “A real highlight of my time here would be the placement opportunity I had in third year, when I was at my old secondary school in the PE department.
“It really underlined that I needed to pursue a career in teaching, specifically within sport.”
