UCLan SENS undergraduate and postgraduate students have been helping Wigan Warriors prepare for Super League 2015.
First year students attended the session to observe testing carried out by their colleagues from our MSc Sports Science course. Senior Lecturer Dr Steph Dillon coordinated the session.
She commented: "It was a fabulous opportunity for some of our first year undergraduate students to observe the high-performance testing of Wigan Warriors' athletes.
"One of the students actually stated this was the primary reason he came to the University, as an ex-student told him he would get lots of opportunities like this at UCLan.
"The group were exposed to an environment where exercise science was being directly applied by Master's students which not only brought the subject to life, but also stimulated a strong desire to be involved in future testing. This is all part of our commitment to provide an excellent student experience."
Warriors' squad are scheduled to return to UCLan in the New Year to continue their build-up to the new campaign.
