The resources and the reach that the lecturers and the University have is incredible. We also have subject centric guest lectures, by the people who have made great impact in their respective fields.
Access to world-class facilities such as the biomechanics and sport analysis lab and Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport, also help to make the whole learning experience one of a kind.
Delivered by experts
The academic support and expertise is delivered by the crème de la crème of lecturers, who share their immense experience and provide us with the practical perspective of how things function in the real-world situations.
Getting the opportunity to meet and run some lab testing on a GB Paralympic athlete, who led the wheelchair rugby team to the victory in the Tokyo Paralympic 2020, has been by far the best experience so far. To hold the gold medal that they won made the whole experience so great. I’m looking forward to having many such opportunities during the rest of my degree.
Following graduation, I hope to work in the sports rehabilitation sector. The programme has already enabled me to learn about the incidence, cause and mechanics of a sporting injury, as well as how to get an athlete back in the game using post-injury or post-surgery rehab protocols. I hope to build on this knowledge during the rest of my time at Loughborough.
