You will understand the relevance of sport and exercise science to current practice. The course ensures that you will develop a broad skill set.

The first year will introduce you to basic science, sport and exercise science disciplines. You will also learn about research methods and techniques. Your second year will advance your study of these disciplines and further your skills.

The final undergraduate year will allow you to specialise with your chosen discipline. You will also undertake your own research project.

The undergraduate masters (MSci) equips you with the practical and analytical skills to conduct independent research. This can be into an area that interests you most.
