As the nation gears up for this week's AFL Grand Final between the Geelong Cats and the Collingwood Magpies, now is the perfect time to listen to what OUA Ambassador and Cats midfielder Jimmy Bartel has to say about kicking goals off the field with online study.

Earlier this year, to celebrate the appointment of Jimmy to the role of OUA Education Ambassador, he met with OUA student and Kick-to-Kick competition winner, Brian Andrews.

The purpose of the competition was to show our students how much we value them by giving them a chance to interact and have a fun day out with a footy legend.

Brian made the most of his opportunity by bringing along his family to join in on the activities and by talking to Jimmy about the similarities they shared as OUA students.

Watch what Jimmy and Brian got up to on the day, find out about Jimmy's views, what his top tips for online study are and be surprised to learn what his favourite study snack is!
