Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Greenwich has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Our extended sports science degree gives you a wide knowledge of the subject and has an extra year to prepare you for degree-level study. You’ll need lower entry points than for our three-year course. Our extended degree in sports science will develop your knowledge of sports physiology, biomechanics, nutrition and psychology, and performance analysis. Using advanced sports science equipment, you'll explore these areas in the lab and through the study of a sport or health-related exercise of your choice. The degree begins with a foundation year to build up your study skills for subsequent years. You'll then follow the same curriculum offered on our three-year course. You'll put your new skills and knowledge into practice through work experience. Among the opportunities available across the sport and exercise science industry are placements at Charlton Athletic Football Club. What you should know about this course:

  • This four-year degree is identical to the three-year course but has a foundation year with lower entry requirements
  • If you have the ability but not the qualifications, this course is your first step to graduation
  • The foundation year includes academic writing, computing skills, introduction to the subject and more.
