Word of appreciation

“After a fantastic three years studying Sport Science at the University of Brighton for my undergrad I took a year out before continuing with my postgrad studies in Applied Sports Physiology (MSc). A fantastic course, well run and one I would recommend to anyone looking to pursue a career in this field, be that with elite athletes or research based!

The past year has been a brilliant 12 months for me, not without difficulties of course. However, I gained much more knowledge than I thought I would have, especially through the nature of my final project into non-localised muscular fatigue alongside PhD student Aaron Greenhouse-Tucknott. It will be an honour to represent the department at the BASES Student Conference in the new year as I submit my work for the MSc Dissertation of the Year Award.

The professional enquiry module offered a fantastic opportunity to grow in both a professional manner via placements and personally through self-reflection, of which I took with both hands. An area I feel added to the course strongly outside of pure scientific research.

Thank you to Jeanne and the academic staff for the support across both undergrad and postgrad studies providing me a platform to develop before moving into the field of high performance strength and conditioning.”
