Having studied Sport and Exercise Therapy at ARU for two years, I have been able to enjoy it both before COVID and throughout. To help you get an idea of what it might be like when you come to ARU, I’ve listed my top three memories.
I hope you enjoy them and start thinking about what your future at ARU might look like, too.
During Welcome Week, all the sports courses (Sports Coaching and Physical Education, Strength and Conditioning, Sport Science, Sport and Exercise Therapy) went to an assault course. This included a plethora of activities from monkey bars over water to games of football and everything in between; Ninja Warrior’s outdoor competitor. What better way is there to form relationships with your peers?
The course I am on was lucky enough to visit Gary Lewin and Colin Lewin’s very own clinic, based in Ilford. Cousins Gary and Colin are best known for their time at Arsenal Football Club, with a combined total of 32 years there. They also have experience as lead physios for Team GB, FIFA, UEFA and many more – you might’ve seen them on the TV or heard them in podcasts/on the radio.
Their experience and expertise was so insightful and the experience I got from that as a future sports therapist is one that I will never forget.
ARU organises many talks with different sporting legends and celebrities to broaden your knowledge and see where you can go with the education you are given. We have had the pleasure of speaking to Lizzy Yarnold OBE, Paul Hall MBE and my personal favourite John Barnes MBE.
