Course outline

By looking at the science behind sports and exercise, you'll be setting yourself up for a wide array of career destinations. Our students have gone on to work with elite athletes in sport science support, as well as helping to improve the health of the community. Put your passion for sports to the best use by studying how the body and mind responds to exercise, what happens when we don't exercise as well as what makes an elite athlete.

We will give you a thorough understanding of physiology, psychology, biomechanics, nutrition and strength and conditioning, allowing you to work towards a specialist area in sport or exercise. You'll love the opportunity to work on a placement in a sport/physical activity setting, giving you real-world experience that will help kick-start your career. Our staff will offer you the wealth of their knowledge and experience, and through our sports complex and fully equipped laboratory, you'll have everything you need to get started in the rewarding career that sport and exercise science is!

Many of our full-time programmes can be studied over a longer period on a part-time basis. Please contact the course enquiries team for further details.
