No major athlete or team is complete without a sports scientist on their staff. Our course trains you to work in this fast-moving field – and there’s financial support for promising athletes. You’ll work with professional athletes to understand and apply the four key disciplines of sports science: physiology, psychology, biomechanics and nutrition.

Sports science uses scientific principles and techniques to help improve the performance of athletes. It’s applied at all levels, from grassroots to elite level performance.

Professional sports scientists make a significant contribution to the success of athletes and teams across an array of sports at national and international level. They also provide education on the benefits of exercise to people’s general health and wellbeing. Our course gives you the skills you need to work at the top level. You’ll explore the nature of human performance from health through to athletic excellence; how the human machine operates when engaged in sport and exercise, and how to interpret and evaluate its responses. You’ll learn to work safely and ethically as a sports scientist.

Our sport and exercise science laboratories will help you put what you’ve learnt to the test. They contain cutting-edge, industry-standard equipment – including 3D motion capture suite, high speed treadmills, metabolic carts for the assessment of cardiorespiratory responses, force plates, hydrostatic weighing tank for assessing body composition, full haematology suite, an array of cycle and rowing ergometers, GPS systems for field work and eye-tracking glasses. You’ll also have access at any time to a wide range of sports science software packages.
