Are you passionate about helping people realise their sporting potential? This course is a scientifically focused degree pathway with substantial practical and vocational themes in strength and conditioning. Over the last decade the role of the strength and conditioning coach has grown substantially. Graduates with a background in strength and conditioning have the potential to work in performance sport as well as with general populations. You’ll study modules in strength and conditioning in each of the three years of study alongside a broad range of modules related to sport and exercise science. You’ll use industry leading technology in the analysis of sport in our dedicated Sports Science Laboratory, Motion Capture Suite and Strength and Conditioning Suite. You’ll study the core components of sport and exercise sciences, including psychology, physiology, biomechanics and research methods. Unlike many other sport and exercise sciences courses, you’ll also learn the practical techniques required to become a strength and conditioning coach. You’ll explore a range of theories and concepts, but you’ll also develop key laboratory skills in a range of disciplines in order to improve the performance of athletes. By the time you graduate, you’ll not only be ready for a successful career in the sports industry, you’ll also have been able to develop highly transferable business and management skills that will prepare you for a wide range of graduate roles. This course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) - the professional body for sport and exercise sciences in the UK. Professional placements Our students have completed placements at a range of professional sports clubs including Castleford Tigers Rugby League Club, Leeds United Football Club and Leeds Rhinos Rugby League Club, as well as with organisations including primary and secondary schools, Human Kinetics publishers and local authority health and wellbeing services. Career opportunities You’ll have the opportunity to graduate with the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in a wide range of sports industry roles. Many of our graduates work in elite sport as strength and conditioning coaches, but others have been successful in teaching, coaching, business and marketing roles thanks to the transferable skills they’ve developed throughout the course.
On this course you will study a selection of modules, which may include: Anatomy and Physiology; Performance Analysis; Exercise Psychology; Biomechanical Analysis of Performance; Sport Psychology: Theory to Practice; Advanced Nutrition for Sport and Exercise; Applied Strength and Conditioning; Performance Physiology; Sports Injury; Physical Activity and Behaviour Change.
