Welsh rugby legend and Cardiff alumni Dr Jamie Roberts will be returning to the University for the first time since graduating earlier this year, to give a talk on combining study and elite sport.

Since signing for Racing Metro 92 in August, the British and Irish Lions star has been living in Paris but will make the journey home next week to offer his insights and advice on juggling a degree in Medicine with the commitments of professional rugby.

Jamie graduated from Cardiff's School of Medicine with honours back in July having for eight years juggled endless games for his former club, Cardiff Blues, Six Nations Championships, World Cups and countless international tours with both the Wales and British and Irish Lions teams with perhaps one of the toughest and most intensive degrees you can study.

The talk will be open to all current students and will take place at 10am, Wednesday 13 November, 2013, in Lecture Theatre 2 of the Main University Hospital Wales building.
