I just wanted to thank staff for all the work they put into the MSc programme last year. I have never learnt so much in one year and probably never will do again! I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Exeter and it was your personal touch as staff that made it what it was. So I have to thank you because without the MSc I wouldn't have been able to acquire the job I have now. You were right, you do have to keep plugging away and the right job finds you.
I am now a Health Improvement Facilitator in Food and Health, working for Gloucestershire PCT, and Gloucestershire County Council in the Children and Young Persons Health and Wellbeing Team. I project coordinate the nutrient analysis of primary and secondary school meals on behalf of the School Food Trust. I am also designing a 10 week child weight management scheme to be rolled out throughout Gloucestershire, to be a signpost off the National Child Measurement Programme. I also facilitate any other projects in nutrition and obesity going on in the county - so a big remit!
I work for Torbay Care Trust (part of the NHS) as a Lifestyle Support Worker. In its broadest sense, I would say the job is classed as community-based health promotion. My BSc and Masters courses at the School of Sport and Health Sciences significantly contributed to my success in getting the job and also the personal transferable skills I learnt are highly relevant to carrying out my day-to-day duties.
I believe having a postgraduate degree from Exeter helped to give me the edge over other interview candidates, not only because of the qualification but because of the specialised, relevant knowledge I acquired through my studies. In addition, because I was able to choose Masters modules that were geared towards my career path, I feel I am a step ahead when learning new things in my job, because I am already familiar with current research concerning evidence-based best practice, and topics and issues in public health.
I am always remembering advice given to me by my lecturers and looking back on my notes to brush up on the exercise psychology models and nutrition principles. I am to attend a course to gain a Cardiac Rehab qualification and I know I’ll be a step ahead of the other candidates because of the module (Exercise Prescription for Clinical Populations) I took at Masters level. It is great to have the opportunity to put into practice everything I learnt while at Exeter, and fantastic to be out there in the field doing what I have been trained to do – and getting paid for doing a job I love!
I chose to study the MSc Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter because of the current rankings in league tables and the quality of teaching. I welcomed the opportunity to be taught subject which were not just part of a broad syllabus, but were passions of the lectures teaching them. I found the staff knowledgeable about their topics and each module was well designed and thought through with practical and theoretical aspects. Study at Exeter is unique because of the opportunity to study on a compact and friendly campus.
