Cara achieved First Class Honours in Physical Education and Sports Coaching Studies BSc (Hons), alongside playing rugby in the Premiership with Worcester Warriors.
“I am delighted that all the hard work has paid off,” said Cara. “I chose the University of Worcester for the location, due to playing professional rugby for Worcester Warriors alongside my degree."
"When coming to visit the open day I loved the atmosphere here, how the University wasn’t too spread out and was close knit. I am so glad I chose to do my undergraduate at Worcester and wouldn’t have wanted to change a thing.”
“Throughout my time at Worcester I have done lots of volunteering, from coaching at Dines Green Community Centre introducing kids to rugby, helping out at Worcester Warriors HUGBY team (blind rugby) and throwing myself in to extra school teaching placements. All of these things helped me to achieve the Silver Worcester Award, and I am currently aiming for Gold while completing my PGCE.”
Cara, who has been, and continues to be, part of the University’s Sports Scholarship programme, is now studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Physical Education. “My long-term goal is to be successful PE teacher,” she said.
