Military Students Show Strength in Degree Results

Released: 19.10.15

Students from one of the University’s Armed Forces programmes, BSc (Hons) Strength & Conditioning, have received excellent results with all students achieving a 2:1 degree or higher.

Caroline Westwood, Programme Area Leader for Sport and Exercise Science and Strength and Conditioning, said: “Huge congratulations to all students on their achievements, which will be celebrated this month at the University’s Graduation Ceremonies.”

Paul Todd, a First Class Honours student, said: “The part time Strength & Conditioning programme provided me with the skills to look critically at the PT syllabus provided for Royal Navy recruits and members of Royal Navy Board and Search Teams to ensure that what was delivered was suitable; to provide robust and resilient sailors fit for frontline duty.

“My whole experience with the University of St Mark & St John has been exceptionally positive; the lecturing staff are extremely knowledgeable and were approachable throughout.  I would recommend the University to anyone wanting to gain Higher Education in an environment that understands the needs and commitments of the Armed Forces”.

David Ward, Head of Centre for Management, Business and Professional Development at the University added: “These results demonstrate the quality of delivery of our Armed Forces programmes and we are keen to further develop our long established history of worked with Armed Forces personnel, both in the South West region and across the UK.”
