LEVEL 00 - Mod Pre-Tert, Foundation, Proficiency & DegreePlus

ECTS CREDITS Not Applicable

DEPARTMENT Degree Plus Programme

DESCRIPTION Upon commencing its third year since its re-introduction, the University of Malta Rowing Club invites all students who are interested and/or intrigued by the sport of rowing. Sessions will be held on Concept 2 rowing machines, which greatly mimic the resistance experienced on water. Strength and conditioning sessions will also be part of the program. We will be breaking down the movements of a single rowing stroke, focusing on developing proper form so as to avoid injuries. The Indoor Rowing Championships held by the club would be a great learning experience for members wishing to row (on a machine) in a competitive setting.

Unit Material:

Appropriate unit material will be provided by the tutors during the sessions.


In keeping with the spirit of Degree Plus, there is no formal assessment associated with the unit. A certificate of attendance and of satisfactory completion of the unit will be provided at the end of the semester.

ADDITIONAL NOTES This unit may not be offered if there are an insufficient number of applicants.
