Sport and Exercise Science (with Foundation Year)

Course summary

The BSc Sport and Exercise Science with Foundation Year programme combines a foundation year with the three year Honours Degree to create an integrated four year programme. The programme provides an excellent introduction to studying a sport science subject at university and will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to study at degree-level. The Sport and Exercise Science with Foundation Year programme is ideal for applicants who do not quite meet the entry requirements for the three year degree or who would benefit from further a further year’s study in relation to studying a science subject. Successful completion of the Foundation Year will see you progress to Year 1 of the Sport and Exercise Science degree or students can choose to transfer to BSc Adventure Sport Science, BSc Sport Science, Physical Education and Coaching, BSc Sport Science, Strength and Conditioning or BSc Sport and Exercise Psychology. From the marginal gains philosophy of elite sport to the increasing number of bioapps and fitness trackers that pervade the health and lifestyle domain, it is clear that the sport and exercise science sector is booming. The Sport and Exercise Science degree at Bangor University will bring the science underpinning such innovations to life. In addition to covering the core areas of psychology, physiology, biomechanics and skill learning, a modern innovation of our degree is the inclusion of the latest psychophysiological and neuroscientific research in sport and exercise. This allows you to bridge the traditional boundaries between disciplines and graduate with an appreciation of how the many areas of sport and exercise science inter-relate. This skillset is exactly what the modern, forward-thinking, sport and exercise scientist needs for a successful professional career, be that in elite sport, business, exercise, rehabilitation, or health. You’ll be taught by staff who are recognised internationally for their cutting-edge scientific research. Our staff are also applied practitioners and they will share their experiences of working as sport and exercise scientists in high-profile organizations (e.g., NHS, military, UK Sport, Sport Wales, Premier League football teams, England and Wales Cricket Board) and with world-leading athletes and teams. North Wales offers a stunning natural environment for your studies, and our department, which was established in 1978, is proud to call itself one of the original and longest serving Sport and Exercise Science providers in the world.
