Norwegian students embrace the learning environment at Bond University

Dag Hilland from Bergen, and Siri Lauluten from Atteraa, both came to Bond University to take advantage of the small class sizes and access to expert lecturers.

“I chose Bond because of the smaller environment. As an international student, the fact that the teachers are so available makes things easier when there are things I did not understand” said Siri.

Dag agrees, “The second I read about Bond University and the fact that the classes are small and that good attention was given to students there was no doubt in my mind where I wanted to study. I didn’t apply anywhere else but Bond University.”

Both students are now in their final semester of a Master of Sports Science and have just completed their major projects.

Dag worked with an emerging marathon runner who had a goal of completing the 2009 Gold Coast Marathon in 2 hours 59 minutes and 59 seconds, with Siri working with a very successful professional female triathlete.

Of her project, Siri says, “through undertaking this project, I have gained many real world insights into the world of Sports Science. Most valuable, I have learned the difficulties that can arise when dealing with professional athletes, their coaches and other relevant members of their support team. I now truly appreciate the importance of project management for the successful completion of an athlete based project.”

Not only has Siri benefited from her Clinical Science project, but so has the triathlete whom she has been working with. “I have shown how scientific guidance can manage the stressors faced by the athletes training program, such as preventing overtraining, improving mental state and enhancing overall performance”

Both students are grateful for the support they have received from Professor, Greg Gass. Siri says “We are so lucky to have professors that are experts in their field.”
