Laura Morris - Southampton
"I chose Swansea because of its brilliant location, facilities and the feeling I got from the staff during my open day visit. I knew straight away Swansea was a place I could feel comfortable.
The teaching is really quite similar to the small 6th form college I came from. The lecturers still have a lot of time to help you and are very easily contactable if needed.
Most of my free time is spent with friends, playing sport or going to the gym. Swansea is a great place with a lot of things to offer."
Matt Blakey - Portsmouth
"I picked to study in Swansea as I enjoyed the open day and liked the fact it was right next to the beach.
The difference from A-levels is that there's more lab work where you get to use equipment that sport scientists use in the field.
Outside of the course, I enjoy going on nights out and socialising with my mates. I play for the University Football society. We play on Wednesday afternoons and then have our weekly socials on Wednesday nights. I also have a part time job on the weekend."
Will Sparkes, Assistant Sports Scientist at Swansea City FC
“While studying at Swansea I enjoyed the many lab-based sessions we did across most of the modules. It's always important to be able to apply the theoretical principles into practice, and i think this really sets you up for when you progress into a dissertation or to an applied setting after university.
The relationship between the University and Swansea City FC allowed me to take on a part-time internship in my final year of university. From there, and through great tutoring by Professor Liam Kilduff and Dr Tom Love, I carried out an MRes, which yielded some good results and really got me working down at the club on a day-to-day basis."
Stephanie Hanley, MSc Sports Science
"From the start of my degree I always had a great interest in the physiology side of the course. I liked the fact that there was a good balance between lectures and labs and felt as though all the lecturers were passionate about their subject which made the learning experience more enjoyable.
Having been given the opportunity to assist in a PhD study in the university during my degree it gave me a greater insight into clinical exercise physiology, something I didn't think I had much of an interest in originally. This has led onto me doing a research masters in the physiological and psychological responses to exercise in patients waiting for and following bariatric surgery."
