The FdSc Sports Science degree provides a specialist programme that will allow students to develop a high level of understanding in sports science and excel in the areas of strength and conditioning, performance analysis and coaching. The programme has been constructed to develop students' fundamental knowledge of strength and conditioning, performance analysis and coaching in year one, which are then enhanced and applied in year two. This foundation degree in sports science offers a unique opportunity to individualise students’ learning towards their personal career goals and create a subject specialism in their preferred subject area. Research projects, including an applied experience module, will enable students to tailor their learning to determine their subject specialism in sport and equip them with skills and experience for their desired career.
