Work with athletes. Refine their performance. Boost their training. On our BSc Applied Sports Science and Coaching, you learn how science underpins performance sport, and how you can use that science to help to advance and improve it. Having a comprehensive knowledge of science is ideal for those who want to coach people of a variety of levels and ages. You will spend your third year on a placement year with an external organisation which will enable you to learn about a particular sector, company or job role, apply your academic knowledge in a practical working environment, and receive inspiration for future career pathways.
