Are you fascinated by the science underpinning athletic performance and exercise? Do you want to work with athletes and clients, helping them to reach their performance potential? Studying Sport and Exercise Sciences gives you the opportunity to understand the science behind all aspects of athletic performance and exercise. You’ll study the core components of sport and exercise sciences, exploring a range of theories and concepts relating to physiology, biomechanics and psychology. And you’ll develop key laboratory skills in a range of disciplines which will help you to improve the performance of athletes. From your first year you can choose to further develop your knowledge and specialise in sports nutrition, performance coaching, performance management or strength and conditioning. Whatever path you choose, you’ll put theory into practice by completing professional work placements. We’ll also give you first-hand experience of working with athletes through Trinity Performance, our sport and exercise science enterprise service that offers coach education, consultancy and health assessments to professional athletes and clients. 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 Bolton Wanderers Football Club and Leeds Rhinos Rugby League Club, as well as in primary and secondary schools, Human Kinetics publishers and local authority health and wellbeing services. Career opportunities Our commitment to developing your employability means you’ll have the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in a wide range of sports industry roles. Many of our graduates work in elite sport as applied scientists, but they have also been successful in teaching, coaching, business and marketing roles thanks to the transferable skills they’ve developed throughout the course.
