We are focused on ‘Creating the University of the Future’, transforming the lives of our students and, through them, the world in which we live.

With over 70 members of staff and 1,000 students, our Department of Sport Science has a long and established history for delivering sport-related programmes. Investment in people and facilities is a cornerstone to our success; facilities include six well-equipped physiology laboratories, the British Olympic Association approved environmental chamber, a newly opened sport and exercise psychology laboratory, the recently refurbished performance analysis suite and two biomechanics and neuromuscular performance laboratories.

Our Sport, Health and Physical Enhancement Research Centre combines expertise from staff in Sport Science, Sport Engineering and Biosciences to form a critical mass of researchers within specialisms that are internationally excellent and have societal, sporting and economic impact.
