Information Technology is a rapidly changing and exciting subject. Organisations are increasingly relying on information technology to carry out key business functions. There is an explosion in the use of mobile devices to shop online and there is a high demand for skilled professionals who are able to effectively manage information systems. Well-designed software applications that are effective and usable is a crucial requirement for employers.
Our Information Technology degree prepares you to meet the needs of a wide range of organisations, emphasising the development of a variety of technologies, especially web and mobile technologies that are increasingly becoming a part of our everyday lives. During your studies, you will have opportunities to develop computational thinking and a systems approach to formulating, analysing and solving complex problems.
The degree is intellectually challenging and is taught by staff with a varied background and a diverse range of interests. Your student experience is enhanced by a rich curriculum that exposes you to multiple approaches to technological problems. Information Technology has a wide-reaching social impact, posing many ethical questions, and these issues are explored at various points during the degree.For more details and information about this course visit:
A degree in Sport and Exercise Science is your route into a future career in sports performance working with elite athletes, or in health & well-being working with clinical populations. Our course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport & Exercise, with an interdisciplinary perspective, focusing on psychology, physiology, biomechanics, performance analysis, nutrition and strength & conditioning.
For much of the time you will study in small teaching groups alongside tutors who are active researchers at the cutting edge of Sport & Exercise Science. Teaching takes place in our multi-million Health & Sport Sciences complex, where you will learn to conduct complete physiological, psychological and biomechanical profiles of both sports performance and health. By studying in small teaching groups in these applied settings, your learning will be promoted and you will develop essential practical skills that form the basis of a career in the field. You will be taught by and study.
By the end of your studies you will have the skills and knowledge to confidently and independently develop training programmes to maximise sports performance, enhance skill acquisition and improve the health of diseased populations.For more details and information about this course visit:
