Would you like to gain experience as a sport scientist? Lecturer? Sports technician? Student?
At the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences we offer work experience to students that provides insight into the day-to-day activities of a sport science lecturer/researcher or an undergraduate/postgraduate researcher.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are currently unable to offer any ‘on-site’ work experience opportunities. However, as a team we are committed to offering the best opportunities. Therefore we are looking to open work experience for all interested as soon as restrictions allow.
Should you be interested in undertaking work experience at the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences or have any questions, please email and register your interest by emailing: Dr Matthew Andrew, Outreach Coordinator. Please note that we are only able to offer work experience opportunities for those 16 years of age or over and only some dates may be available.
Here's what some of our work experience students thought:
"Initially my fears were that when I thought about science in a school context, I thought that it would be too scientific and therefore not enjoyable. Having applied the science that I have learnt in college to the laboratories in various contexts, I found that fascinating. The experience has provided me with a great basis to explore numerous options in the sporting world."
"There wasn’t a day during the week that I didn’t enjoy myself. The experience was very varied and enjoyable. I wasn’t sure at first whether I could cope with the content but after the week that definitely wasn’t the case. This experience has cemented my decision to pursue a career in sport and exercise science."
