What sort of person is Academic Sports ideal for?

November 21, 2018 by Ellie Callon Jones

Ten questions with Tabby Rogers, designer of Academic Summer’ Academic Sports Programme.
How did you get into your subject?
Whilst at school I was very academic and loved science. As I got older I was influenced by my sporty family and developed a passion for sport. From there I made sense for me to combine the subject I enjoyed most to study sport science at university.
What has been your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement has been representing Great Britain in the age-group world triathlon championships alongside the rest of my family.
What advice do you have for someone going into a career in sports?
Always enjoy the sport you are doing, it should never feel like a chore.
What is your best Academic Summer memory?
Watching the sports students enjoying themselves whilst trying new sports. Seeing the students bond and make lasting friendships through a shared interest in sport.
What is your best tip for achieving a good study-life balance?
Stay organised with your studies and make sure you allow yourself time to do the things you enjoy. Start maintaining a work-life balance early on.
If you could talk to your 16-year-old self, what would you say?
Work hard to achieve your goals in a topic you enjoy the most. Believe in yourself and take opportunities that come your way.
What sort of person is Academic Sports ideal for?
Anyone who has a passion for sport, but also the science involved when partaking in sport. Someone who knows that their ideal career involves sports and wants to explore the ways they can be successful in this field.
Who inspires you?
My parents inspire me to work hard and achieve my goals whilst doing what I enjoy.
What difference does studying in an international environment make?
It makes a huge difference in your understanding of different topics, cultures and an insight into the different lifestyles people have. It really opens your eyes to the possibilities of working in a global setting.
Can two weeks of study really make a difference to a student’s success?
It really can. What you learn in a week can provide a passion for a subject that will drive you to want to work hard to achieve your goals. Meeting likeminded people and sharing your ambitions with them can give you the motivation you need to reignite your passion and drive. Investing two weeks in yourself and your future can be amazing!
