72 students across the Department of Sport & Exercise Science were praised for their academic achievement and hailed as "role models" for the department
Students from across the Department of Sport & Exercise Science were recognised for their academic achievement at the Honours List ceremony.
The Honours List was established in the Department of Sport & Exercise Science in 2015 to acknowledge and award excellent academic achievement by students in all degree years. This year sees the highest number of students to date on the list.
It was established as a means to praise these high achieving students and encourage them to keep up these standards across their full degree.
Students with an average mark across the academic year of greater than 65% in years 1 and 2, and greater than 70% in years 3 and 4 are awarded a place on the Honours List.
The 72 students on the 2019 list are from across the Department's five undergraduate degree courses: Exercise Science (Common Entry), Exercise & Health Studies, Health Promotion, Sports Coaching & Performance, and Recreation & Sports Management.
Fantastic role models
"These students are fantastic role models for our Department and reflect the culture of excellence and endeavour that our staff foster in all of our activities from teaching and learning to research and engagement. As we strive to continually improve the delivery of our programmes, it is very encouraging to see these students respond so positively to the varied challenges they are set,” said Michael Harrison, Head of the Department of Sport & Exercise Science.
