Our students have taken placements and found employment in various roles with Melbourne Victory Football Club such as strength and conditioning coach, video analyst, performance analysis coordinator, U15 team manager and assistant sports scientist.
At the end of my bachelor degree I knew I wanted to further my studies in sport science, being able to do this at VU was great.
VU’s connections and partnerships have allowed me to undertake placements in sports that were suited to what I wanted to do; specifically, the Football Federation of Victoria and Melbourne Victory. This has led me to create contacts with professionals in the industry that I can learn from now and into the future.
