UoG hosts England rugby assessment day

Our Oxstalls campus and sports facilities hosted the England rugby team as they prepared for the Guinness Six Nations and the Rugby World Cup.

The team were given medical and movement screening, and carried out a simulated rugby task in the University’s environmental chamber, cycling for 20 minutes in elevated temperatures and at 60% humidity.

University of Gloucestershire students were able to observe as the England team were assessed at Oxstalls.

“It’s great for the students to see the same specialist kit that we use to teach them, like the environmental chamber, force plates, telemetry kit and timing gates, being used to assess elite athletes.”

“The Sports Therapy programme at UoG provides you not only with the knowledge and hands on experience to help you progress to your goals but also fantastic support post-graduation. My ambition was to work in professional sport, and I am now working as a sports therapist for Premier League rugby and football teams as well as in a private clinic. If you are thinking about choosing UoG as your destination my advice is just do it!”
