This course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge to develop a successful career in the sport, leisure and sports science industries. We have a flexible approach for admissions, and applications are welcome from non-standard academic backgrounds. The first year of the course is a foundation year taught at Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College. The foundation year prepares you to progress onto our Sports and Exercise Science degree. In the final three years of the course, you will gain practical experience and understanding of core areas within sport and exercise science – including physiology, psychology and biomechanics. Our expertise is wide-ranging and you’ll learn from experienced lecturers who bring their research and industry knowledge to the classrooms and labs. Working in a healthcare context, with access to first-class equipment for analysing performance, you’ll develop a critical understanding of key areas of sport and exercise science – plus learn how to help individuals maximise their sporting performance and improve their health.
