SPORT & EXERCISE SCIENCE

Understanding the science of Sport and Exercise plays a central role in maximising sports performance, promoting the learning of new skills and the treatment of disease. Our degree is founded on the core disciplines of sport and exercise science, namely psychology, physiology and biomechanics, and considers in detail three core questions from a multidisciplinary perspective. How does the human body respond to the different types of exercise, how can we maximise the effects of training on sport and exercise performance, and how can physical activity reduce and prevent disease?

Study with us and you will have full access to the multi-million pound, state-of-the-art Health Science Building and Sports Complex, incorporating dedicated research space and new teaching laboratories. This facility houses ultra-modern equipment where you will learn to conduct complete physiological, psychological and biomechanical profiles of human sports performance using breath-by-breath expired gas analysis, blood analysis, vascular and cardiac screening, body composition analysis, eye-tracking, electromyography and motion capture to name but a few.

You will leave with the skills to become a sports scientist working with elite performers or clinical populations, the basis to become a sports coach across the full range of ability levels or enter the teaching profession and train the next generation of sports scientists. You will be taught by tutors who are active researchers in the field of Sport & Exercise Science, all of whom regularly publish their work in the scientific literature, literature that you will read as you progress through your degree.
