(7 April 2017)

Four of the University’s seven students selected for the English Universities Squad come from disciplines within Humanities.

The English Universities Programme has been re-launched with England participating in the upcoming 2017 Home Nations Event in Edinburgh, from 10 until 13 April. 

The Programme is made up of three sports: hockey, football and rugby 7s, all with men’s and women’s teams.

The aim of the Programme is to offer students an opportunity to represent their country at the highest level within higher education.

Top athletes from institutions around the country have attended both regional and national trials, and those who have succeeded in making the squad have proven their sporting ability and commitment to excel in their respective sport. 

The Humanities students selected are:

  • Ellen Lockhart, Geography (hockey)
  • Tom Lush, Politics and Modern History (hockey)
  • Charlie Reed, Sociology (rugby)
  • Asher Silverman, History (football)
