Endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, this practical, multidisciplinary degree will help you to develop as a complete sport and exercise scientist. You will gain an evidence-based appreciation of biomechanics, nutrition, physiology and psychology and their applications within sport and exercise environments. Based in our Carnegie School of Sport, you will have access to nationally and internationally recognised staff with a wealth of research and applied experience, a supportive academic advisory programme, specialist laboratories and facilities, and a progressive learning environment. **RESIDENTIALS** At the start of the year you can go on a one-week group study residential. This will be a chance to meet new friends and take part in a number of challenges to develop your problem solving and team working skills. Activities can include rock climbing, gorge scrambling, mountaineering, walking, canoeing and kayaking. **PLACEMENTS** Through work placement opportunities, you could find yourself working for professional sports clubs, such as Leeds Rhinos or Yorkshire County Cricket, local schools or health clubs. Many of our students have also taken advantage of our sport volunteering opportunities which have included national and global events such as the Student and Commonwealth Games. **PROFESSIONAL ENDORSEMENT** The British Association for Sport and Exercise Science (BASES) is based at the University and offers a wealth of advantages including an annual student conference and membership, along with networking and employment opportunities. This course also meets the standards set by BASES and as a student here, you will be able to apply for personal accreditation. **SPORT SCIENCE LABS** Our specialist sports science facilities include a human performance lab, a cardio-respiratory lab, blood sampling room for biochemical marker work, a full working physiology lab for monitoring athletes, a full body composition scanner and a nutrition laboratory.
