Course summary

Overview As science plays an increasingly important role in sport, the opportunities to work in this field are growing rapidly. At Worcester, we have the facilities and specialist staff to help you make the most of these opportunities - everything we do is geared towards you becoming a skilled practitioner. In our labs, you'll practise essential procedures, guided by supportive lecturers. And your work placements will show how your studies apply directly to the real world. They're also linked to the industry qualifications you're likely to need in your career - whether you choose to specialise in physiology, biomechanics or psychology, or study these in combination. Key features

  • Excellent facilities - including our Biomechanic Laboratories and Motion and Performance Centre - which you use every week for lectures and practical sessions
  • Lecturers who are trained practitioners in sport or exercise science, and still do the job in the community - they can show you tips and short-cuts you won't find in any textbook
  • Great playing facilities outdoor and indoor, including the University of Worcester Arena, an official Paralympic training venue and winner of the 2015 Guardian Buildings that Inspire Award
