Applied Sport Science with Placement

Are you interested in a career in sport and exercise science? This degree specialises in physiological, psychological and biomechanical theories, and focuses on how these can be used to enhance human performance. You’ll be able to put these theories into practice in the University’s industry-standard labs, as well as through opportunities for internships. You can also specialise in your third year, allowing you to hone your expertise to take the next step to your dream career. To complement their degree studies, students are encouraged to prepare for BASES and UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) professional accreditation and join Level 2 of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs), with the option to attain Level 3. This combination of academic and industry qualifications can help students build their professional network and increase employability upon graduation. To help prepare students for a career in the sports industry, the University encourages a practical, hands-on approach. The course team’s background in sport science research and their strong industry links have given past students the opportunity to undertake optional internships with the University’s partner Southampton FC and a range of other top sports organisations, including a number of professional football and rugby clubs, Hampshire Cricket, Spire Hospital, and local athletics clubs. Those aspiring to be teachers have been able to gain experience through school placements and after-hours sports clubs. The course team’s links with the industry have also provided past students opportunities to attend guest lectures. Recent speakers have included international sport scientists from the English Institute of Sport, international cricket and premiership football, and from GB squads such as wheelchair rugby, sailing and basketball.
