“I have always been passionate about sport, exercise and health which is why I decided to do Exercise Science and Physiology. I am very interested in learning the science behind athletic performances, and the relationship between exercise and adaptations to the human body.
“I chose to study at the University of Auckland because I wanted to be in a position where I had many study options available. The range of subjects allows you to explore and determine which field of study you would like to specialise in.
I aspire to a career where I am able to interact with other individuals in a clinical setting. Becoming an exercise or cardiac physiologist really appeals to me.
" I believe that be choosing this undergraduate degree I will prepare myself for the many options within the medical and exercise science field of study which I am also very interested in.
“I feel like the all information I learn in my programme is applicable to everyday life. The topics connect well with other Science courses and the field is constantly evolving, which makes you eager to learn more.”
