MSc by Research in Sport and Health Sciences, St Luke’s Campus
“I really enjoyed the opportunity to be involved in research, and helping with other projects going on in our labs. I won a showcase award for my research in the Children’s Health and Exercise Research Centre, which gave me the opportunity to present my findings at the Houses of Parliament.
My thesis examined sex differences in exercise parameters in young people with cystic fibrosis, and is linked to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. This gave me the opportunity to be exposed to the clinical application of the work done in the sport and health sciences department.
I did my undergraduate degree at Exeter, and loved the social, academic and sporting aspects of the University. Furthermore, the Children’s Health and Exercise Research Centre is renowned for its paediatric research which made studying my master’s degree here an easy decision.
St. Luke’s has a great community feel to it, so it’s easy to get to know people on your course and the lecturers. The labs are well kept with lots of the latest equipment allowing for all kinds of research. With the academics coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, there’s always an opportunity to develop new techniques and lab skills.”
