You’ll study in state-of-the-art labs in the David Ross Sports Village, using specialist biomechanics and exercise physiology equipment. You'll also access the facilities in our Medical School, which includes a dissection suite. Being part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences means we can draw on the expertise of our academics and share the latest knowledge across the medical and biological sciences. Optional advanced study modules are available. You'll build a professional portfolio and complete a research project in a topic of your choice in your final year.
In year one, you’ll learn about the fundamentals of exercise physiology, psychology and functional anatomy. You'll also study biochemistry, cell biology and biomechanics. You'll gain lab experience and complete a first aid qualification as part of your Personal Development Portfolio. In year two, teaching expands to include nutrition and how the body responds to environmental stress. You’ll study biomechanics and psychology in more depth, as well as taking a closer look at the musculoskeletal system and cardiovascular and respiratory physiology. You can choose four advanced optional modules in year three, to study alongside your research project. The research project is an exciting opportunity to consolidate your learning while exploring an area you find interesting. You'll work alongside a research group in the University, with supervision from a research-active academic.
