Sport and Exercise Science
“I’ve been able to apply what I’ve learned to aspects of my own lifestyle.”
I chose Brookes because of its great location; I wanted to start rowing, which the city of Oxford is perfect for, and the course fitted my interests perfectly.
I’ve really enjoyed representing the university at regattas and improving my physiology, as well as spending time with so many interesting people. The best part of my course has been the alpine fieldwork module, which includes a trek through the Alps.
My lecturers are very enthusiastic. They’re happy to discuss material in and out of teaching hours, whether it’s on the syllabus or a personal issue.
The knowledge I’ve gained on the course has been interesting and relevant; I’ve been able to apply what I’ve learned to aspects of my own lifestyle and it compliments my rowing training well.
After completing my course I’m considering a research-based master’s related to my degree. I would like to be involved in some novel research in one of my areas of interest.
