Have you ever wondered how is he so fast? Or how is she so strong? Or perhaps, how do athletes organise their training to perform at their top level? Understanding athletic success requires a broad knowledge of the scientific principles that enable human performance; this practical-based course will advance your practitioner skills in all disciplines of Sports Science so that you can go on to succeed in areas such as elite sport, sports medicine/therapy and societal health and wellbeing. The BSc in Sport & Exercise Science is delivered by staff internationally recognised for their involvement in sports practice and their contributions to research and teaching. You will have access to specialist sport science facilities (e.g motion capture laboratory & human performance centre) and opportunities to advance your practical skills with applied work experience within our Human Performance Centre and research laboratories. The course is aligned to the standards of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Science (BASES) and has employability embedded within its curriculum. Additional to the practical skills-based modules in all levels of study, you will take a work-based module in Level 5 to develop your practitioner skills; and then in Level 6 you have the option to choose a Placement module, which has been designed to empower you to pursue a specialist area of knowledge within the Sport and Exercise sector. In addition, you can boost your CV by gaining extra curricular nationally recognised sporting qualifications such as UK Coaching Certificates and Gym and Personal Trainer awards, which are taught by LSBU Activef at the University.
