Sport and Exercise Sciences Extended Degree

Study the science behind sport and exercise at Roehampton where you will learn how to optimise athletic performance, prevent injuries, improve well-being, and help athletes with recovery. The BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences extended degree programme includes a foundation year, which will provide you with a sound introduction to key elements needed for studying Biological Sciences at degree level. Our extended degree programme will provide you with a thorough and supportive academic preparation for study. The Foundation year is carefully designed to build your confidence in your abilities, develop essential academic and study skills, and provide you with subject specific knowledge as a basis for success in your following three years. The Sport and Exercise Extended degree is comprised of three areas – the biology and biochemistry of the body (physiology), the physical demands on the body (biomechanics), and the response of the mind (psychology). This course will help you gain in-depth knowledge of how these three sciences underpin sport and exercise and get you ready for a career in the sports industry. You will learn about the latest sport theory and practice and gain hands-on experience working in lab settings with specialised modern equipment. This degree will give you a strong scientific knowledge basis to be able to address key contemporary issues in the sector such as how to optimise team performance, how to improve the recovery, and mobility of amputees, and how to cope with extreme environmental conditions. Our enthusiastic tutors provide lively interactive ways to learn, ensuring you will have the best possible experience. You will develop a range of key skills, including the ability to analyse and understand scientific data and information. You’ll be able to apply what you have learned to a successful career in the sports industry or beyond. Recent modules have included ‘Applied Sport and Exercise Science’ which explores performance analysis techniques for both team and individual sports, ‘Psychology of Peak Performance’ where you will discover the psychological theories and skills that apply to the promotion of peak performance including the newest psychological developments, or ‘Biomechanics: Performance & Injury’ which will help you put your theory work into practice using data from scientific measurements to improve athlete performance.
