Matt leads our Athletic Union, offering you sporting opportunities at all levels.
"I came to the University of Hull strongly seeking a new environment and independence. My time as a student was fantastic, not just because of my course, but mainly because of the experiences I gained from throwing myself into sport clubs and activities.
Being a member of Rugby Union gave me so many great memories and holding two sport exec positions at Hullfire Radio and Torch TV gifted me the opportunity to channel passions for both sport and media. Through these roles, interacting with sport clubs daily, I grew a rounded understanding of sport at the University.
Ultimately I ran for VP Sport because it was the perfect opportunity to use my passion to better other people’s sporting experience. After boring my friends to death talking about events, results and solutions they suggested I go for it. I had thought of it already at the start of my final year but with their support I just thought ‘Let’s do it!’
I would highly recommend people to run for this role. It is unbelievably challenging but so fun too! Not only do you learn a great deal about university life, but you learn a lot about yourself."
