Podcast: Sports scholarships and a brighter sporting future

With applications for our Sports Scholarships programme now open, we hear from some of our current scholars about their experiences.

In this fifth episode of MetCast, we speak to our sports scholars about the wide range of financial, physical and emotional support that the programmes provide – and how this helps them balance their training with studying for their degree.

We hear from Will (lacrosse and human geography), Hallam (rugby and product design) Honor (water polo, and speech and language therapy) and Loick (basketball and design engineering).

We also speak to Professor Richard Greene, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Research and Knowledge Exchange, about our plans for a new Institute of Sport – and how this will build on our city’s rich sporting heritage to create the athletes, sports scientists and managers of the future.
