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.

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.
