This episode is a little different in the sense we don't discuss the nuances of training but look at the education climate across three continents. How are we preparing students to work in professional sport? How does this differ in the US to Australia? How can we better structure out Bsc & Msc programmes to maximise the chance of employment? Enjoy!
