Matt Pears (Sport & Exercise Science, 2009)

Matt Pears, Head of Strength & Conditioning with Leeds United, who studied MSc Sport & Exercise Science at our University

I got my position as head strength and conditioning coach at Leeds United through an internship position available from one of the links with Leeds Beckett University to Leeds United.

I thinkLeeds Beckett University have avery strong relation to partners. It gives the opportunity for students to get out there and apply whatthey're learning, not just in the labs and in the lecture theatres, but to apply it to real world athletes. Leeds Beckett University really put an emphasis on links with the outside world, with clubs in and around Leeds to develop its students.
