First annual HE Sport Research Conference a success

Last week our HE students held their first ever Research Conference at the Honeywell Sports Village.

Staff and students had the opportunity to speak with our HE Sport students and find out more about their dissertations and research projects.

Students presented a wide variety of research topics within Sport including disability football, mental health and how sport can be used to relieve exam pressure.

Coaching and Sports Development student Alex Sawyer said: “It’s been a brilliant opportunity for everyone to showcase their different ideas.

“It’s interesting to see how people perceive sport and it’s great to see people shine a light on aspects of sport that are less focused on.”

BA (Hons) Sport, Physical Education and Health student Hannah Robinson said: “It’s been a good opportunity to explore other research methods students are using to get an idea of how they used their data analysis. Seeing how other people are doing their research is a great way to learn.”

Dan Connolly, Sport Higher Education Pathway leader, added: “We are proud to have held our first ever research conference. It’s been a great day and a great experience for our Higher Education students.

“The feedback they’ve received from staff and fellow students will hopefully help them improve their dissertations and research projects moving forward.”
