Sport and Exercise Sciences Open Day success

Aspiring sports coaches, nutritionists, scientists and teachers flocked to Surrey Sports Park to discover more about the University of Surrey’s game-changing Sport and Exercise Sciences degree.

The Open Day gave potential Surrey students the chance to learn more about Surrey’s pioneering BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences degree and explore the £36m Surrey Sports Park  - home to breathtaking sport and research facilities and leading national and international athletes.

Visitors were given an overview of the new degree by Professor Susan Lanham-New, Head of the Department of Nutritional Sciences, and met the academic team behind the programme, including Julie Hunt, Dr Ralph Manders and Programme Director Dr Adam Collins, a leading expert in sports nutrition.

Student athletes Jonny Tye and Paul Yates, part of the Surrey High Performance Athlete Support Scheme (HPASS), led guided tours of the Surrey Sports Park, and visitors had the chance to visit the main Stag Hill campus to view the beautiful grounds, library facilities and accommodation.

Applications for our Sport and Exercise Sciences degree are open now and the first cohort of students will start at Surrey next autumn.

The next University of Surrey Open Days will take place in 2014. Dates will be posted on our Open Days pages soon.
