The Brunel Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (Sport Development) BSc is designed for students who are passionate about sport and interested in how it can be used to develop communities, inspire young people, and help individuals fulfil their potentials.

You’ll learn how to plan, deliver, manage and evaluate high-quality sport activities and events that will encourage and enable people to get involved in sport, from grassroots to elite level, and lead healthier lives.

In your sport development specialisation, you’ll also study marketing and media campaign techniques, learn to resource projects and attract investment, and develop inclusive sporting activities that benefit disadvantaged and under-represented social groups and communities.

You’ll gain practical, transferable skills including research, presentation, case studies, grant-writing, video production and using digital technology and social media.

We offer three study options. You can choose three years full-time, six years part-time or four years full-time with a one-year professional placement between years two and three that will give you the chance to put what you’ve learned into practice.
