Course summary

Our BSc (Hons) Sport Performance Analysis degree offers you an outstanding quality of education alongside the development of real industry skills. This boosts your employability prospects, as you are required to develop skills needed for a career in elite sport performance analysis. The degree is designed through consultation with our professional sport partners, and as a global university partner for STATsports, you can benefit from a high standard of specialist sport science facilities, and learn in an innovative environment that matches that of elite sports organisations. You will have extensive opportunities to use the latest analysis software throughout your degree studies. A professional performance analyst provides objective feedback to athletes, team sport players and coaches, helping to develop performance, as well as the tactical and technical development of players and teams. Other specialist roles include player scouting and opposition analysis. The degree will first teach you the fundamental principles of the career, leading to the most advanced, research informed practice currently used in professional sport – from creating statistical data driven reports and presentations, to individual athlete, player and team performance profiles. Using video and data analysis, a sport performance analyst needs to tell athletes, players and coaches what actually happened during a performance, instead of relying on the memories of those athletes, players, coaches and sports science staff alone. You will learn to work with world-leading technologies during the course, which are used extensively in the football Premier League, international and Premiership Rugby union, other leading European sport leagues, as well as other global professional sports. Student will gain the theoretical knowledge and pratical skill-set required to practice in elite sport. Subject themes focus on specialist sport performance analysis topics, sport coaching and integrate the core disciplines of sport and exercise science where appropriate (physiology, biomechanics and psychology).
