I had planned to study secondary science education but I changed my mind, as this degree let me combine multiple interests. I felt exercise and sport science let me follow my passion for science and biology while exploring it in the context of my interest in dance.
I had considered the exercise and sport science program at another university but the University of Sydney offered a far more science based approach which appealed to me.
It was great to receive my offer and know I was going to be studying what I wanted!
Lectures and tutorials, lunch with friends and study in the library. My favourite unit of study is currently Training Adaptations - it's great to start applying the concepts we've learnt!
How thoroughly we explore scientific concepts.
University is harder than high school as you're expected to take control of your learning, however, getting to explore your interests in depth and fulfill your passions is an amazing experience!
There is an incredible variety of students with ranging interests and backgrounds. Most of our lecturers are highly knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach.
As All Star Cheerleading gains recognition, currently as a provisional Olympic sport, I wish to apply my degree to coaching cheerleading at an elite level and furthering research into the sport.
If you love science then the University of Sydney is definitely the place to explore an interest in exercise and sport!
