BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science

Overview

Available for October 2022 Entry

In today’s society, sports and physical activity is an increasingly important part of life for more and more people. Those involved in sports and physical activity are consistently striving to improve their performance, either as professionals, elite, amateurs, or purely for recreational and personal reasons. Sport and Exercise Sciences is a systematic way of studying how performance can be improved and how individuals can achieve their personal potential. It is within this context that our BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Sciences programme prepares graduates for a successful career in an exercise related field, by placing strong emphasis on both, theoretical knowledge and practical application.

Our programme will appeal to those with an enthusiasm for sports and those who want to take an active role in the promotion of health and physical activity combined with an interest in science from a human perspective. A strong feature of the programme is that it provides a particularly solid understanding of the sport and exercise science discipline in years one and two. The third and fourth years build upon this foundation with an increased focus on students’ specific interests as well as providing placement opportunities for students to enhance their employability skills.

Beyond the discipline specific knowledge and skills, throughout the programme, students can develop essential transferable skills, such as research skills, digital literacy skills, communication skills, group-working and presentation skills. In each of the four years of the programme, students will study compulsory and optional modules which will allow them the flexibility to follow their own interests as they develop during their studies, including a focus on areas such as Human Performance, Sports Psychological Counselling and Physical Education. Moreover, students will have the opportunity to train on the finest learning, exercise and human performance laboratory equipment.

The programme curriculum is research informed and highly practical, enabling graduates to work with professional athletes of any division and/or sport. Students can work with a range of clients including children and teens involved in sports, professional or semi-professional athletes interested in improving their performance as well as injured athletes/players working toward returning to sports participation. Practical application occurs in the campus fitness centre, athletic track, indoor hall and the sports laboratory, but most importantly in off-campus fieldwork and industry placements
