Welcome to our new Community subject representative – Kara Pring

Each year the Community of Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences appoints a Subject Representative. For the 2018-19 academic year we are pleased to introduce Kara Pring who has taken over the role.


Hi Kara,

Tell us a little bit about you!

Hi, my name is Kara I am 20 years old and from Bristol. I am currently a third year BSc Sports Therapy student. Outside of the course I play for the university netball team and am quite involved with my placement with Bristol Rovers Football Academy, Severn Stars Netball, Yate Town FC and a local youth rugby team.


Tell us what is your new role?

My new role is the subject representative for the Community of Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences.  I am here to give every student a voice, improve the quality of the student experience at the university and enhance a more effective approach to teaching and learning.


Why did you want to take this on?

I wanted to give everyone a voice and ensure that all the courses are the best they can be for current students and future cohorts.


What would you like to achieve in this role this year?

This year I am looking to improve the Community feel between all the courses as I feel that all the courses can benefit from working with each other like they would in a team sporting environment.


What are you looking forward to this academic year?

I am looking forward to putting everything that I have learnt into practise when treating and helping clients and build my confidence before going into the big wide world.


Best things about being at UoG?

Best things about UOG are the new people you get to meet, the numerous opportunities available to take up and the new experiences you get to be involved in.


What are your plans for after graduation?

I don’t have any plans for after graduation at the moment but I am looking to do a Masters degree at some point in the future.


If you’d like to speak to Kara about her role or share your experiences as a student with her then please get in touch via her university email – she’d be happy to speak to you.
