Craig is a Senior Physiotherapist who works at huge sporting events like the Olympic Games. He tells us more about his GCU degree and subsequent career.

How was your time at GCU? 

Glasgow Caledonian is a convenient university for accommodation, travel and placements. I wasn't in a small physiotherapy cohort compared to other schools, but excellent socially and intermingled with all other courses in Jordanhill, then City Campus as well. 

How has your career progressed since GCU? 

I’m currently a Senior Physiotherapist at the Sportscotland Institute of Sport. After graduation I did rotations in Glasgow, then I worked in New Zealand for a year before I returned to a position in English professional football. After two seasons, I moved back to Scotland to work for the Ministry of Defence until 2007 when I joined the Sportscotland Institute of Sport. My high performance sports career has allowed me to attend one Olympic Games, two Paralympic Games, one Commonwealth Games and multiple world championships. This would not have been possible without the education achieved at GCU.

Further education led me to MSc in Sports Physiotherapy at Bath University, again utilising many skills initially taught in Glasgow.

 What are your words of wisdom? 

Always be open to possibilities, but also be true to your goals and ambitions. The path is never the same for every individual, so the right path needs to suit you.
