Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University are offering work experience positions for Yr. 10 students. We are able to offer a total of 12 places for 1 week, between July 9-13th. Initially I am able to offer each school 1/2 places, but depending upon uptake, this may increase.

 Students would spend a total of 5 days working with the Department. Each day students would work within a specific pillar of Sport and Exercise Science;Physiology, Biomechanics, Psychology and Coaching.

 On the final day, students will get the opportunity to present to the department on what they have learnt and what they have most enjoyed.
