This course combines the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of a Sport Science degree with the added bonus of fitness qualifications so you can enter the Register of Exercise Professionals at level 3. Your first year covers broad knowledge of core scientific areas of sport and exercise science and includes the gym instructor qualification. Year two introduces you to online gas analysis machines, environmental chamber, light gates and echocardiography and includes the personal trainer qualification. In your final year, use your acquired theory and practical skills for your research project, and gain the exercise referral instructor qualification. This is an integrated four-year degree, with the foundation year as a key part of the course.
