University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

This programme involves the scientific study of sport. It is comprised of technology'based study, in our well'equipped sports science labs. It covers in'depth scientific topics including the anatomy of the human body, physiological function during sport and exercise, nutrition, principles of biomechanics, psychological approaches to sport, performance analysis, and fitness testing. You will get the opportunity to apply these topics to the study of a sport or health'related exercise form, according to your choice, using some of the most sophisticated equipment, including 3D cinematography and respiratory gas analysis.

We have a team of expert tutors and are one of the few sports science programmes in the UK, where you will have the opportunity to gain work experience from between 4 to 6 weeks, in the sport and exercise science industry, including Charlton Athletic Football Club and Medway Hospital.

The aims of the programme are to:

Give you the chance to develop, to a high level, your knowledge of the science of sport, including physiology, biomechanics, nutrition and psychology, as well as sports performance analysis

Provide you with a comprehensive practical experience within well'equipped labs, in relation to the study of sports science

Give you an opportunity to develop your own research skills, using the most technologically'advanced and sophisticated sports science equipment to make measurements in sport

Offer you an opportunity to get work experience in sport science, applying your knowledge to support the sports performer, thus giving you a head start in the world of work.
