Research-guided teaching, studying abroad in Australia, and the application of knowledge within the Human Performance Unit. These are some examples of the multitude of experiences that have facilitated my learning and academic development as an undergraduate student. It has been a tremendous experience to be in a department dedicated to helping each and every student achieve an excellent degree, with broad employment and further study prospects.
The course really demonstrated to me the importance that science has on sporting performance. The combination of classroom teaching with practical laboratory sessions was essential, as it allows you to become active with the learning and how the objectives apply to athletic situations.
