Letter from BASES Executive Director Tom Holden
I know from my own experience that decisions about what to study at university – and what to do after graduating from university – can be overwhelming. How I know from my own experience that decisions about what to study at university – and what to do after graduating from university – can be overwhelming. However, it does not have to be the daunting and confusing task that it first appears. There are lots of resources available to help you make the right decisions and I hope that this guide will serve as a useful and informative resource, whether you are currently studying sport and exercise science at university, or are considering it as a possible career.
The decision of what undergraduate or postgraduate course to study will not define your whole career but making a well-informed decision that reflects your interests and skills will help save you significant time and effort in the future and can help you to stand out in a competitive job market. It is with this in mind that we have developed A Guide to Careers in Sport and Exercise Science; a concise yet comprehensive guide, packed full of helpful information about careers in sport and exercise science to help you to identify and pursue your dream job or career.
In developing this guide, we have obtained the views of many of our members: practitioners, researchers, lecturers, students and other professionals within the industry who have ‘been there and done that’. I hope that the guidance and advice provided by these experts will help to answer some of the frequently asked questions about careers in sport and exercise science and will support you in making decisions that will positively shape your future career.
I wish you the very best of luck in whatever path you choose to take.
BASES Executive Director
