Our students

Bryan is a third-year Sport Science and Exercise and Health student, who completed an internship with UWA Sport.

 In Year 10 when all the universities came to my high school, I talked to the people from UWA about Sport Science and Exercise and Health and from that moment onwards I knew that is what I wanted to do.

He loves Sport Science because most of the learning is practical work rather than sitting in classrooms.

It’s also a very social degree as we see each other quite often and have to participate in activities together, friendships are formed which makes time at university more pleasant.

The UWA Uni7s Rugby Team is Western Australia's women's team comprising students and elite Australian players. Bryan's role as an intern at UWA Sport involved assisting the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach to carry out training sessions and be an extra pair of eyes in the gym to ensure safe and effective lifting.

During this time I realised working in a gym or in sports strength and conditioning was a possible career for me. When the chance to be a part of a team where I could learn from someone with more experience than me was offered, I immediately took the opportunity. After all, learning is best done by doing.
