Sport Science - University of Huddersfield

**Do you want to know what really goes on in the mind and the body during physical exercise? Many national governing bodies of sport and professional sports clubs now employ sports scientists, strength and conditioning coaches, and sports psychologists. They’re looking for those precious ‘marginal gains’ that can help their athletes compete to their full potential.This course could give you the skills to support people in achieving their best possible performance, while minimising their risk of injury.** On the course you’ll explore three main areas: physiology, psychology, and biomechanics. Physiology looks at how the body responds to exercise and physical activity, what factors might hold back an athlete and how appropriate training can improve performance. Sport psychology looks at how a person’s way of thinking might affect their performance, and how they can use psychological skills to improve it. Biomechanics focuses on applying the laws of physics to human biological systems. You’ll be taught by lecturers who are experts in their fields, including strength and conditioning, elite sport testing, physiotherapy and coach education. And you’ll be able to use some excellent facilities, including our biomechanics and physiology labs, as well as our recently built sport and fitness centre. The course is endorsed by SkillsActive, the Sector Skills Council for sport and exercise, which means you could gain extra industry-recognised qualifications within your degree. It is also endorsed by The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), and you could also become a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REP). You’ll have the chance to go on a work placement in your second year, enabling you to apply your learning and knowledge in a professional setting. Previous students have taken placements in schools, colleges, local authorities, community-based projects and professional sports clubs.
