Graduates, alumni, students and staff (past and present) were invited to join us in celebrating 25 years of Applied Sport Science on Saturday 29 February 2020
25 years ago, the first entrants started on the first broad-based applied sport science degree in Scotland. Since that time over 650 students have studied on and graduated from the programme including such famous international sportspeople as Sir Chris Hoy, Gemma Fay, Grace Reid, Mike Blair, Tony Stanger, Samantha Judge and many others. Graduates have also gone on to lead very succesful careers in all walks of life including sport, public sector, armed forces, charities and private business.

Speakers: Dr Rachel Sandford and Dr Oliver Hooper from Loughborough University.
This presentation will seek to outline and share findings from a recent British Academy-funded research project that examined the sport/physical activity experiences of care experienced youth in England. It will discuss key findings from the project and explore possible future developments and pedagogical applications.
