Sport science largely offers expert scientific intervention to enhance training and performance, while exercise science has a central role in physical activity programmes aimed at improving general health. In this course students develop the practical skills required to work with both the elite athlete as well as the general population, and importantly improve knowledge and understanding of the theoretical principles underlying the practical application. Students experience a range of teaching environments aiding them on their journey. Specifically, our new human movement lab and human performance lab will be the main settings for classes, allowing for learning through doing. Students gain experience in the sport and exercise industry through the placement module, with time spent in our sport science clinic preparing for working outside with employers.
Modules include: Advanced sport and exercise physiology; dissertation; lab techniques in exercise physiology; research methods; work placement.
Course Additional Entry
We welcome applications from students that will have attained an undergraduate degree in a sport or exercise related field (2.2 or above); alternatively prospective students who have completed a lower sports and exercise or equivalent qualification and have extensive experience in the area will be considered via interview. Prospective students who fail to meet some of the above criteria may be directed to some preliminary study e.g. Summer school. Prospective students may require an interview, either in person or via Skype/telephone. You must have competence in English language and we normally require Grade C GCSE or an equivalent qualification. IELTS 6.5 (with minimum 6.0 in all 4 components).
