HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

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.

Trying a New Sport at University
Don't worry if you've never played a particular sport or want to try a new activity. NVU shares the vision of the campaign ‘sport for all’ and the university encourages students to try something new. The university offers both beginner classes and coaching for those who want  to improve their skills in particular sports. These can be run by NVU staff employed in university sports and recreation departments, or by fellow students.
