Research student views
I applied to the University of Brighton to study for a PhD in the area of Women’s Surfing. I chose to apply here because I find the Chelsea School a particularly nurturing environment in which to study. Academically, the school has an excellent reputation in the field of sports sociology. In particular, I have two of the best supervisors I could hope for, on both an academic and personal level.
I really enjoyed my time studying for a PhD at Brighton. I studied the physiological responses to low oxygen in a state of body water deficit, requiring fairly specialized equipment which the university has. The laboratories are some of the best in the country for hypoxic and environmental physiology.
