Mathematics and Sport Science with a Year in Industry

Course summary

Mathematics and Sports and Exercise Science 4 Year Full Time with a Year in Industry - UCAS code: GC18 Mathematics underpins all contemporary science, business and technology, and is of fundamental importance in understanding the world around us. Sport and Exercise Science is equally rooted in our distant human beginnings and anchored to our present state. It explores how the human body performs under different levels of pressure and covers broad issues from wider participation in sports, to ethics, sports psychology and nutrition. Our four-year combined BSc Mathematics and Sports and Exercise Science with a Year in Industry covers a broad base of classical and contemporary theory across both disciplines and has been designed to bring together these two subject areas in a fresh an innovative way. Your learning will be shaped by inspirational and internationally-renowned staff including Dr Edwin Beggs, Reader in Mathematics and an expert in Algebra and Geometry, and Dr Nicholas Owen, Associate Professor in Sports and Exercise Science and an expert in human biomechanics.


The programme consists of a core of modules in Mathematics and Sports and Exercise Science covering key aspects of both subjects. The compulsory Mathematics modules cover the central topics of real and complex analysis alongside linear and abstract algebra. These topics provide students with a solid understanding of modern mathematics. The compulsory Sports and Exercise Science modules cover the key areas of anatomy and physiology, biomechanics and nutrition.

Assessment method

A range of assessment methods are employed in this programme. In Mathematics aspects of the degree there is a balance of exams and coursework. Coursework elements include regular problem sheets spread through the academic year, alongside practical PC-lab work where appropriate. Alongside this assessed work students also have regular small un-assessed tasks and assignments to complete to develop their mathematical understanding through a hands on approach. In Sports and Exercise Science aspects of the course there is a mixture of lab work, group work, coursework and exams through the programme.
