University of the West of Scotland (UWS) calls on sport students ahead of the UCAS deadline on 15 January 2019
UWS’ undergraduate sport programmes give students a competitive edge with many lecturers’ active or former athletes including former Team GB triathlete, Dr Hayley McEwan, 2014 Team Scotland Commonwealth Games high-jumper Dr Ray Bobrownicki and Mark McKenna, performance analyst for the Scottish netball team at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
By learning from sports stars who know their discipline inside out, students are taught career-focused programmes by the very best.
Sports psychologist, and former Team GB triathlete, Dr Hayley McEwan, who has competed at European level, brings true track experience into the classroom.
Hayley says: “Having that real-world insight allows me to bring my own experience into my teaching practice. It helps bring theory alive for students in the classroom as I have the perspective as an athlete, researcher and practitioner.
“Mark McKenna’s on-site input to the Scottish netball team at the 2018 Commonwealth Games was invaluable to the team and their coaches. He provided real-time, play-by-play video analysis and feedback during every match, showing where improvements could be made, and plays better executed.”
