BSc (Hons) Applied Sports Therapy

'Teesside is a great place to study. As a mature student I gained the degree I needed to progress in my career.'

Having worked in sport and exercise throughout my career I felt I needed a degree to progress to the next stage. Studying at Teesside gave me this opportunity and the experience I needed to develop. I now work for the largest private residential ship on the planet – The World Residences at Sea.

We help our residents stay active with fitness classes, personal training, kayaking, hikes, biking, diving and snorkelling, and I manage the onboard fitness centre, ensuring a five star environment for all.
