Our Sports Science programme is for individuals interested in the science underpinning all aspects of human performance. The course aims to develop your skills in analysing and evaluating performance and providing interventions within the traditional (including exercise physiology, psychology, biomechanics and nutrition) and the contemporary sports science disciplines (such as performance analysis and strength and conditioning). This excellent course offers you the chance to study in a department equipped with its own human performance laboratories, performance analysis facilities, and strength and conditioning suite for testing, analysing, and training. We take an applied approach to our programme delivery, drawing on cutting edge research and decades of practitioner experience, to give you the transferable skills to make a difference in the field of sports science.
In your first year, you will study fundamental modules such as Human Physiology, Bioenergetics, Introduction to Sports Psychology and Biomechanics for Sport, where you will learn about the key systems underpinning sport, exercise, health and movement. Your second year will introduce you to more applied modules such as Exercise Physiology, Sports Nutrition, Biomechanics and Performance Analysis and Psychology of Sport and Exercise. During your third and final year you will begin to specialise and have the opportunity to study modules in Biomechanics and Skill Acquisition, Advanced Topics in Sports Nutrition, Sports Psychology and Exercise Physiology. You will choose your pathway at this point and specialise in Applied Human Performance, Advanced Performance Analysis, or Advanced Strength and Conditioning.
