New Vision University offers you the opportunity to be involved in many different types of sports and physical activities, in- or outdoors at all levels. Getting physically active can help boost your energy, mental health and even academic performance. NVU considers that students are motivated by different things. Those who wish to compete seriously can join a sports team and represent the university but there are also other activities, primarily for fun, enjoyment and social relationships.
University sports are usually offered at these levels:
- Representative or performance sport – at varsity level, i.e. competition between universities (inter-university championships);
- Intramural sport – competition level within your university (intra-university championships);
- Social and recreational sport – informal participation;
- Health and wellbeing or lifestyle – e.g. gym, fitness, yoga classes.
Benefits of University Sport
You may feel you’re too busy with your studies to prioritize sports. However, research suggests that those who take part in physical activity get better grades. You also benefit in other ways. Physical activity can reduce stress levels from course deadlines and exams. Sports can also hone your powers of observation and the ability to focus. Employability skills are enhanced, such as working towards targets, using strategy and drive, and communication and teamwork. Social isolation decreases through widening your circle of friends outside of the subject you study. Starting to study at university often means moving from home, living with people you've only just met, and studying in a different way than you're used to which can be stressful. Taking part in sports, particularly in team sports, helps to boost your mental health and beat the stress.
To promote a healthy lifestyle among local community, NVU sports fields are open to public. If you need a sports field for competition or play in football, basketball, volleyball, cricket or other sports, please, write a request to firstname.lastname@example.org with the indication of the date, time, sports and the details of your request and wait for our feedback. Booking the sports ground is free of charge.
