In today’s society, sport is an increasingly important part of life for more and more people. Those involved in sports are consistently striving to improve their performance, either as professionals, elite amateurs, or purely for recreational and personal reasons. Sport and Exercise Science is a systematic way of studying how performance can be improved and how individuals can achieve their personal potential. It does this by drawing together the study of physiology, psychology and biomechanics in a sport and exercise context. The BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science course will appeal to those with an enthusiasm for sport and physical activity combined with an interest in science from a human perspective. A strong feature of the course is that it provides a particularly solid understanding of the parent disciplines in years one and two. The third year builds upon this foundation with an increased focus on sport specific material and in year four develops students’ particular interests and specialisms.
