Sport uni taster days

 

 

The University of Worcester has a proven record of excellence in the field of sport and exercise science, with plenty to offer anyone who has an enthusiasm for sport, exercise and health.

 

By attending a Uni Taster Day, students can hope to achieve the following: have better understanding of the life of a sports student; have a clearer idea of the range of careers available to a sports graduate; have increased knowledge of the sports courses available to study in higher education.
