Key to this course is the scientific studies of human responses to the outdoors and of performance in the outdoors. This is combined with an opportunity to develop your own outdoor skills concentrated in the practical Water- and Land-based modules and the Expedition module. You will also have the opportunity to work towards National Governing Body recognised qualifications in various disciplines e.g. mountaineering and kayaking. All students study 120 credits in each year of their degree. In addition to modules in the subject specific areas of Physiology, Psychology, Biomechanics, and Motor Control and Learning relating to each degree, there are three components common to all programmes: Academic Skills, Advanced Employability and Research Skills, Project and Dissertation.
