Course summary

Sport plays a major role in society - from elite athlete all the way through to the amateur. The sports industry continues to expand with ever-increasing local and national government support either through direct intervention or local partnerships. New employment markets in health rehabilitation, personal training and coaching have meant that Sports and Exercise degrees at Writtle University College remain contemporary and valued within the modern workplace. Sports and Exercise Performance is concerned with the understanding of human performance. Its aim is to assist the coach/athlete to achieve as high a standard of theory as possible using technology and research as assistance and guidance. The fundamentals of human anatomy and physiology are core throughout this one-year Certificate of Higher Education in Sports and Exercise Studies. However, the principals of psychology and related interventions such as biomechanics also play a major role.
