A Sports Therapy student and keen netball player is celebrating after achieving First Class Honours in her degree.
Emma Livett, from Southmoor, Oxford, joined the University of Worcester after completing A-levels at Matthew Arnold School.
The 23-year-old said: “I put in a lot of hard work to complete my degree and it is such a relief that the hard work has paid off. I am ecstatic as I was worried that I might not achieve the required grades to enter university. Therefore, to come out with First Class Honours is such an amazing feeling.”
Emma will graduate during a ceremony at Worcester Cathedral in November.
“The University of Worcester has a welcoming ethos and is in a beautiful setting,” she said. “The course had desirable qualities with the opportunity to study abroad for one semester.”
During her time at the University, Emma achieved the Worcester Award+, a scheme to help students boost their employability, and worked at external events including Tough Guy and Trailblazer. She also represented the University Netball Society as the Club Captain and was awarded Most Improved Player of the 2013-14 season.
Emma is now hoping to complete a Masters course in Applied Sport and Exercise Performance to enhance the knowledge that she has about injuries and relate it to the limit injury has on maximal performance.
She added: “To anyone planning to apply to university, or starting this September, study hard but more importantly maintain healthy friendships by joining a society and uphold a part time job. At times juggling commitments may be hard but as long as you are organised with your time, maintaining these will be easy.”
