Mastering her sporting career

Sharna Naidu is scoring goals through her placement at Melbourne Victory, where she works as the Academy’s Performance Analysis Coordinator.


"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 offered a perfect opportunity for me to continue on from an undergraduate sport science course into the postgraduate Master of Sport Science.

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.

One of the biggest benefits for me is the Video Analysis subject offered within my Masters course. The subject is not offered at many universities. The opportunity to study this subject and put my knowledge into practice with the Melbourne Victory Youth Academy has been incredible, and an opportunity unique to VU.”
