BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science


Tom is presently fulfilling his role as a research student.

He graduated in 2016 with a first class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science. Throughout his time as an undergraduate Tom represented the University rugby team, while also competing for his local cricket team during the summer breaks. He showed particular interests in Physiology and Biomechanics while completing his undergraduate degree.

Upon finishing his studies Tom decided to pursue his interests further, and was subsequently awarded a full time PhD studentship in the Neurovascular Research Laboratory to investigate the neuroprotective benefits of exercise. Tom is currently undertaking this project while assisting his fellow PhD students, Tom Owens and Benjamin Stacey, in completing their respective research projects.
