Course summary

Elite athletes are taking an increasingly scientific approach in search of precious marginal gains. Recreational exercisers and patients living with disease are turning to science via apps and biotech devices to monitor their training, recovery, health and well-being. This modern, hands-on, research-led degree will equip you with a critical understanding of the science of human function, providing the skills and experience needed to develop innovative psychological and physiological interventions to promote sport performance, exercise and health. 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. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch. If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Sport and Exercise Science (with Foundation Year) C61F.
