Sport & Exercise Science

Our Sport and Exercise Science degree focuses on the scientific principles that underpin sport and exercise. Our course is practical-based, stimulating, well-structured and research-informed, covering a range of topic areas including biomechanics, physiology and psychology. The practical elements of our Sport and Exercise Science course make use of purpose-built laboratories to develop your knowledge and understanding of the key issues within sport and exercise science. Additionally, the course offers you internship opportunities with three local professional sports clubs in the area. The optional career and employability module in the first year gives you a head start when thinking about future careers or further academic study, allowing you to think about potential specialisms that you’d like to find employment in or study at postgraduate level. The course modules are delivered within the classroom, sports hall and laboratories in a structured manner. Classes are delivered in a variety of methods including lectures, seminars and practical sessions. Our Sport and Exercise Science degree provides you with the skills necessary to secure employment in a number of careers in a range of sectors including opportunities in sport science support, teaching, coaching, performance enhancement and the health and fitness industry. All of your essential reading will be available from the University's Library which means that all your essential course reading materials are available for free when you start with us.
