Sport & Exercise Sciences at University of Chester - UCAS

Course summary

Discover the science behind producing elite sporting performances and physical activity for health promotion through an applied and vocational approach. In recent years, the sports, recreation and leisure industries have shown continued growth. International success and the growing health agenda has ensured that investment and interest in sport and exercise in the UK continues to increase substantially. Therefore, the course is designed with two core principles in mind. Firstly, the development of knowledge, applied skills and analytical techniques in the conventional subdisciplines of sport and exercise sciences. Secondly, the orientation of studies around vocational opportunities and practices, including PE, sports management, development, coaching, health promotion, leisure and recreation, as well as sport science support and sport and exercise sciences generally. The practical and applied nature of the course is a major feature. We have a wide range of facilities including Performance Analysis, Muscle Function and Sports Biomechanics laboratories. Exton Park also boasts a gym, swimming pool, floodlit 3G MUGA pitch, sprint track, floodlit tennis courts and more. The Department prides itself on its approachable staff and varied teaching strategies, which external examiners and current students praise highly. Through using a student- centred approach, we produce graduates with subject expertise and career potential.
