The BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science degree at the University of Suffolk is comprised of three main scientific disciplines, according to national subject standards: physiology, biomechanics and psychology. We also specialise in exercise and sports nutrition, and this falls within the physiology subject area. The final subject area involves the vital research methods and statistical analyses subjects. These are highly valued by both sport and exercise science and general graduate employers. By keeping class sizes small we ensure you will be able to use all of the world-class research facilities during your studies. We do not rely on theoretical teaching alone, or just demonstrate tests and equipment to you. You will be able to use the research equipment in our laboratories, for each of the main subject areas in the degree. This provides you with excellent practical skills and the best possible student experience. Together, these promote and best develop subject knowledge and highly valued employability skills. Our students currently enjoy multiple work experience placements with Ipswich Town FC Academy, and internship opportunities with Allied Health Professionals. Graduate opportunities include employment in a diverse range of health, sport, exercise, and lifestyle related occupations; research project teams, postgraduate study and primary/secondary teaching (including physical education and the science subjects). Some possible (and recent) destinations of graduates include: sports performance physiologists, sports performance analysts, strength and conditioning practitioners, clinical exercise scientists, sports development officers, health and exercise advisors, GP referral exercise consultants, sport and/or exercise research scientists, and MSc and PhD studentships. Secondary science and physical education teaching (after a one-year teaching postgraduate course) have also been popular destinations. Given the degree is based on the natural sciences, the ability to teach both science and physical education are strongly supported.
