Dean's Message

Dr. Akshai Mansingh

We welcome all our new and returning students to the new academic year. Last year we celebrated our first graduates from our BSc Sport Coaching and Sport Kinetics programmes, out of the Mona Campus. This year we will graduate the first from the St. Augustine campus! Our Sports Science programme at the Cave Hill campus remains robust and we commenced the BSc Sport Coaching programme there as well. We are also happy to report that many of the graduates have moved on to enroll in our postgraduate programmes at the Master’s level.

As sport moved into full resumption last year, we had success with our sporting teams. The Volleyball, Football and Cricket teams were outstanding in Barbados and Jamaica. We were particularly pleased with our revived Female Cricket team in Trinidad who performed very well in the National competition there.  Individuals did extremely well in World Athletics, Cricket, and Netball. However, we would like to single out our professional cyclist, Llori Sharpe, who not only competed throughout the year from Spain but will be graduating with first class honours! She has displayed that high achievement in sport and academics is possible.

Our facilities continue to get facelifts on all campuses. As our student bodies enjoy their use, we strive to provide facilities of the highest quality to all our competing teams and our tracks, cricket fields, swimming pool and indoor facilities across the campuses are some of the best in the region. This year we hope to get the other fields to match.

The newly branded Global Campus has allowed us to extend our offerings beyond the region. As we welcome the existing students from the former Open Campus, we welcome the new students with the hope that you can settle into your new phase of life seamlessly and suggest that you reach out to senior students and staff as soon as possible if you encounter any difficulties. 

Welcome to the Faculty of Sport – your place to shine!

We hope you have success academically and in whichever sport you compete in at whatever level. We are here to see you through to your best potential.
